The hydrogen-powered Range Rover could be offered alongside the battery-electric powertrain.

British luxury carmaker, Jaguar Land Rover recently unveiled their all-new Range Rover SUV. The new (2022) Range Rover luxury SUV comes with a host of updates while being powered by a bunch of powertrain options.

At the time of launch, the company stated that a PHEV version will debut in 2023, while a fully electric version will arrive in 2024. Now, according to a media report, the 2024 Range Rover EV could be powered by hydrogen.

While details of the project are scarce, reports suggest that Nick Miller, Program Director, Land Rover, has confirmed that the new MLA-Flex platform, on which the fifth-gen Range Rover is based, can accommodate a hydrogen powertrain. The hydrogen-powered Range Rover could be offered alongside the battery-electric powertrain.

Adding fuel to the rumours is the fact that Land Rover has been working on a hydrogen-powered prototype vehicle, based on its Defender SUV. The Land Rover Defender FCEV prototype is said to be a part of the brand's 'Project Zeus', with testing scheduled to begin soon.
