Range Rover EV: What you need to know!
Land Rover has opened waiting list for the electric Range Rover, and what this means is that people who join the waiting list will be the first who get the opportunity to pre-order the electric SUV when sales officially commence at some point in 2024. The electric Range Rover is built on the same existing Range Rover which was engineered for hybrid and electric powertrains. From the preview images, it’s likely the electric version will be almost similar in design compare to its ICE version. The V8 Engine power output is around 530 BHP, so expect the EV version to be around the same.
The electric SUV will use 800V architecture for ultra-fast charging. The only SUV which will compete with the electric Range Rover would be the Mercedes EQS SUV which is basically a jacked-up version of the sedan EQS. The technical or performance details aren’t disclosed by Range Rover, their product engineer, Thomas Muller says the EV will have the same “go anywhere” capability as its ICE sibling with promises that its towing, wading, and terrain capabilities including the ability to traverse 850 MM deep-water, the EV aims to surpass other luxury electric SUVs.
The luxurious electric SUV is undergoing tests in Dubai, and Sweden to understand the scrutinising the underfloor, battery durability, and thermal derating of the electric vehicle. Manufactured at JLR’s Solihull plant alongside existing hybrid versions, the Range Rover electric will initially utilize batteries from an external supplier before transitioning to packs produced in the upcoming Somerset gigafactory planned by JLR’s parent company, Tata Motors. The assembly of batteries and electric drive units for the model will take place at JLR’s new electric propulsion manufacturing center in Wolverhampton.
