2022 Range Rover

Land Rover’s new Modular Longitudinal Architecture (MLA-Flex) can accommodate internal combustion engines, plug-in hybrid (PHEV) and 100 percent electric powertrains.

This new fifth-generation Range Rover will be available in 2022 with a choice of mild-hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrains and four, five or seven-seat interiors across standard and long wheelbase body designs. A pure-electric Range Rover – the first all-electric Land Rover – will join the line-up in 2024.

Every Land Rovers nameplate will be available with pure-electric propulsion by the end of the decade, helping Jaguar Land Rover achieve net zero carbon across its products, operations and supply chain by 2039.

The extended Range plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) powertrains provide CO2 emissions below 30g/km, with a WLTP certified pure-electric driving range of up to 100km (62 miles). They deliver an expected real-world pure-electric driving range of up to 80km (50 miles) – enough for typical Range Rover customers to complete up to 75 per cent of trips using nothing but electric power.

The new Range Rover has been designed, developed and engineered in the UK and will be produced exclusively at Land Rover’s Solihull Manufacturing Facility, the historic home of Range Rover.

Land Rover’s desire to push the Range Rover more upmarket is reflected in the starting price of 94,400 pounds (USD$130,140) in its UK home market, a 13 percent rise from the current base price of 83,525 pounds and 28 percent higher than its 2015 entry price of 73,950 pounds.

JLR did not say how much the most expensive version of the new Range Ranger will cost. The full-electric version will go on sale in 2024, two years after deliveries of the rest of the range start next year.
