Price differences between the polluting and cleaner engines were already massive with drivers paying thousands of pounds more to own a vehicle with a combustion engine.
Sepi Arani, Commercial Lead at Carwow said owners of an internal combustion Range Rover could pay more than £2,150 more than a similar model with a hybrid engine.
