Estimated read time 2 min read

Luxury British automaker Land Rover is in the process of developing its inaugural fully electric Range Rover. The company has announced the opening of a waiting list for the upcoming Range Rover Electric, which is touted as the “quietest and most refined Range Rover ever created.” The global debut of the electric Range Rover is scheduled for 2024, with customers on the waiting list having the opportunity to place pre-orders.

Land Rover has completed virtual testing, and the first physical vehicles have been constructed and are undergoing on-road testing worldwide. These tests will assess the electric drive system’s robustness, battery performance, chassis integrity, and conduct vehicle dynamics evaluations for thermal derating. The Range Rover Electric is expected to deliver performance comparable to the flagship Range Rover V8, including towing, wading, and all-terrain capabilities.

While specific details about the electric powertrain are limited, Land Rover has disclosed that the electric SUV will be built on Jaguar Land Rover’s Modular Longitudinal Architecture (MLA). All components of the SUV will be designed, engineered, and manufactured in the UK, alongside existing mild-hybrid and plug-in hybrid models. Batteries and electric drive components will be assembled at the Electric Propulsion Manufacturing Center in Wolverhampton.

Key features of the Range Rover Electric include an 800-volt electric architecture for rapid charging, the ability to wade through up to 850 mm of water, and support for over-the-air software updates. Geraldine Ingham, Managing Director of Range Rover, emphasized the significant demand for the latest-generation Range Rover and announced the waitlist for clients eager to be among the first to pre-order this highly anticipated electric model, marking a new era for the Range Rover brand.
