Range Rover EV will launch in 2024.
JLR has opened the wait list for the first all-electric Range Rover EV, and released a new teaser video. The company says the electric SUV will hit showrooms in 2024 (differing from the previous statements of it launching in 2025). Early adopter can now sign up for their slots in the waiting list.
The electric vehicle is currently in the prototype testing phase, and JLR says it’s still filing patents as it goes through what it calls “one of the most intensive engineering sign-off programs ever.”
Upcoming Range Rover EV: What To Expect?
JLR says the Range Rover EV will have a similar performance to the current V8 Range Rover SUVs. Land Rover claims that this electric SUV will support 800V rapid charging on public networks- juicing up to 80% in about the same amount of time it takes to stop at a gas station, use the restroom, and stroll through a candy aisle. The infrastructure for this, however, is still years away!
The first physical prototypes of the electric Range Rover are being tested in temperatures ranging from -40° Fahrenheit to over 120° Fahrenheit, in locations as far apart as Sweden and Dubai. The Range Rover EV is expected to have a wading depth of 850mm. It will be underpinned by JLR’s modular Longitudinal Architecture, which was developed for its EV and hybrid vehicles.
Earlier this year, JLR announced a $19 billion investment in electric and autonomous vehicle technology for the next five years, vowing to be “electric-first” by 2030. The decision to start with a large SUV, like the Range Rover, makes sense for JLR — we love our big SUVs, right?
