Combining go-anywhere capability with whisper-quiet hybrid performance, the new Range Rover PHEV proves to be an ideal companion for mountaineer and photographer Jimmy Chin Leave your car outside overnight in Jackson Hole in winter and it will have to withstand bitterly cold conditions. So when climber, skier, photographer and Oscar-nominated filmmaker Jimmy Chin tested the new Range Rover PHEV (plug-in hybrid electric vehicle), he didn‘t need to take it on one of his expeditions to find testing conditions: he just took it home. “I really appreciate having a vehicle that can handle everything the weather here can throw at you,” Jimmy says of the Wyoming town and ski resort where he lives and trains between adventures. “Conditions here can change dramatically.” Jimmy is used to being in dramatic environments. Obsessed with mountaineering, he lived in his car in Yosemite National Park after graduating from college just so he could climb every day. But his stellar career documenting his climbs as a photographer and filmmaker was almost accidental. Soon after graduation, he used his climbing partner‘s camera to snatch a picture of him sleeping in their bivouac dangling from the sheer 900-metre face of El Capitan, Yosemite‘s infamous granite monolith. The image sold for 0. The pair split the proceeds, and Jimmy used his share to buy his own camera. 21
