Default Neat, but too bad its a Rover

http://www.overlandjournal.com/newsl...11_03/range_e/

8 speed auto transmission
turbo diesel V6 with 40 mile electric range

It'd be cool to be able to do a water crossing on electric power without need for a snorkle, although you'd have to shove a plug in the exhaust pipe.

Ditto. It's the right way to make a really efficient hybrid.
