Land Rover has unveiled at this year's Beijing Motor Show the Range Rover Hybrid Long Wheelbase.

Following the introduction of the standard wheelbase Range Rover Hybrid, Land Rover is now offering this frugal variant for the stretched version which offers 186mm more legroom for rear passengers as a result of an overall length of 5.2 meters. Those who opt for the executive seating package will benefit from different rear seats that can recline up to 17 degrees.

It's also the first diesel hybrid vehicle to be offered in China and will combine a SDV6 3.0-liter with an electric motor and an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission to generate a combined output of 340 PS (250 kW) at 4,000 rpm and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) between 1,500 rpm and 3,000 rpm. More important, the vehicle will return an impressive 36.7 mpg US (44.1 mpg UK or 6.4 liters / 100 km) with corresponding CO2 emissions of 169 g/km.

Land Rover says it can run on electric power for up to one mile during which it can reach a top speed of 30 mph (48 km/h). When used as a hybrid it will do the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run in 6.9 seconds before topping out at 135 mph (218 km/h).

Additional details can be found in the attached press release.
