Land Rover plans on doing some improvements for their upcoming 2024 Range Rover. The company wants to add the all electric Range Rover for their lineups, expanding their production to the next generation electric versions. The official confirmation and announcement have been made by the company, stating that they are prepared for their new launch.
About the Upcoming Production
Land Rover made the official announcement during the reveal of their 2022 model of Range Rover. The 2022 model has been redesigned, and it is coming as the fifth generation of the luxury SUV. Expect it to be packed with handy features, new and advanced techs, and also electrical architecture that would support their (over the air) software updates. The 2022 model has been using the new architecture that is flexible enough, designed as the next base of the future model, including the electric variants as well as the plug-in hybrid versions.
It seems that the company is busy focusing on their current 2022 model, so they don’t provide any further details about their upcoming 2024 Range Rover EV. Jaguar Land Rover (JLR), a part of the Land Rover’s parent company, has seen the trend and they have seen it somewhat coming. In 2017, JLR has stated that all new productions from both Land Rover and Jaguar brands would provide hybrid and electric option, starting from 2020 models.
The Focus on 2022 Model
What about the technologies offered in 2022 model? It is coming as a plug-in hybrid and also mild hybrid options. For the 2023 model, the company even plans on developing more powertrains. After all, the company has to focus on the 2023 model after they are done with the 2022 launch. But again, the 2024 model is still a long way to go, considering that the company wants to focus on 2023 model.
Powertrain and Performance
For the 2023 model, the extended coverage of the plug in hybrid technology would be coming with six cylinder inline unit that would be paired with mild hybrid 48V technology, along with 38.2 kWh li-ion battery (with 31.8 kWh usable capacity) and also 105 kW electric motor. Such a combination will generate 61 miles of pure electric range, producing 434 hp.
For the 2022 model, however, will have more options. There would be options for the standard and also long wheelbase design, seating options, and also powertrain options (whether the eight or six cylinder pick). The P400 SE, which is a mild hybrid variant, would be running with turbocharged of 3.0 liter unit, generating 395 hp and 406 Nm of torque. The base price may likely start from around $104,000 exclude the taxes or destination fee.
The P530 First Edition is designed as a long wheelbase body, having V8 twin turbocharged unit with 4.4 liter capacity that can churn 523 hp and 553 Nm of torque. This one may start from around $163,500, exclude the destination fee and tax.
The 2024 Positive Development
We have seen many positive things, and many updated techs and features for the 2022 model. So, it’s only logical to hope that similar good things will retain up to the 2024 model. We just have to wait for the company’s confirmation and update for their upcoming production and release.
Price and Release Date
Price may be the biggest issue for this vehicle because it’s not for everyone. The price range for the 2022 model would start from $105,000 and it’s for the base model with six cylinder unit. It means that the full electric model would be definitely higher. It’s not a cheap ride. It’s possible that The Range Rover EV will start with a bit higher price than $105,000 and only offered in limited trims, including the higher-end SV and Autobiography trims. That’s all the available information about the 2024 Range Rover.
