As the first electric Range Rover edges closer to the driveways of affluent buyers, Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) provides a glimpse of its grandeur through released images. The upcoming large, luxurious EV SUV maintains a familiar aesthetic, sharing similarities with its gas-powered and plug-in-hybrid counterparts, a deliberate design decision made during the last generation’s unveiling.
The electric model will utilize the Modular Longitudinal Architecture (MLA Flex) platform, shared with its conventional counterparts, and will retain off-road capabilities despite its high-voltage battery. Prototypes are undergoing rigorous testing, including exposure to extreme temperatures and wading through water up to 33.4 inches deep—two inches less than its gas-powered counterparts.
While the electric Range Rover promises adventurous off-roading, drivers must be mindful of their distance from charging stations due to its 800-volt architecture, allowing ultra-fast charging. However, specific technical details, such as battery sizes and driving range, remain undisclosed.
Production of the electric model’s batteries and electric motors will take place in Wolverhampton, U.K., while the assembly will occur alongside regular Range Rovers in Solihull, U.K. Anticipated for a 2025 release, interested customers can secure a spot on the waiting list to ensure priority access to pre-orders, offering a sneak peek into the future of luxury electric SUVs.
