    We're often asked why more automakers don't sell diesel-electric hybrid vehicles. There are plenty of good reasons why, but that doesn't stop people wanting the twin-pronged benefits of highway and city economy. SUV buyers could get their wish if Land Rover brings diesel-electric hybrids to the U.S, though. According to Edmunds (via our sister site Motor Authority) that diesel-hybrid versions of both the new Range Rover and Range Rover Sport will arrive on U.S. shores in the next couple of years. New European emissions regulations in September 2014 will bring European and U.S. standards much...

Many thought that appropriate given the striking, avante-garde looks, and today it's often considered one of the greatest cars ever made. These days, the DS name is a brand in its own right, and joining the DS3 subcompact and DS4 crossover in the European market is the diesel, hybrid and all-wheel drive DS5.
