Range Rover Electric prototype revealed ahead of global unveil

The Range Rover Electric will be built in Solihull, UK, alongside its PHEV and mild-hybrid versions.

JLR has released the first set of official images of the upcoming Range Rover Electric. In these images, the prototype EV can be seen testing in the Arctic Circle without camouflage, giving us a glimpse of what to expect from the brand's first all-electric SUV.

The Range Rover Electric will make its global debut later this year. It will go on sale in multiple international markets, including India, sometime in early 2025. JLR opened the "waiting list" for the Range Rover Electric in December 2023 and, since then, has already managed to receive over 16,000 expressions of interest.

As seen from the images, the Range Rover Electric will be identical in design to its ICE counterpart. JLR though states that the EV will get a "modernist design language that stays true to the Range Rover bloodline", indicating a few subtle differentiating factors between the EV and its ICE derivatives.

JLR stated that the current focus of the Range Rover Electric is the performance of its gearbox, electric motors & other electronics in extreme conditions. Thomas Mueller, Executive Director, Product Engineering, JLR, stated, "Range Rover with electric power – means customary Range Rover luxury, refinement and capability plus near-silent fully electric propulsion; with effortlessly smooth and relaxed journeys. He further added, To ensure we leave no stone uncovered, we are well underway with our physical testing and development programme, all designed to push the Range Rover Electric to the extremes to ensure its capability remains unparalleled when it reaches you."

While the specifications of the EV are yet unknown, it will reportedly get an 800V charging architecture, a dual-motor system with 4WD and torque vectoring to boost its off-road capabilities.
