Electric Range Rover will become the most expensive car of the brandOctober 21, 2019
We are talking about an SUV that will become the main competitor to the Macan EV and the next-generation Audi E-tron Sportback. The new car should enter the market in 2021.
On the eve it became known that the British company Land Rover is preparing to launch the first all-electric version of the Range Rover SUV. The car should go on sale in 2021 and will become the most expensive in the lineup of the company. Initially, the car was introduced as a concept in 2017 under the name Road Rover. Its main advantage over competitors will be high traffic. In terms of dimensions, Land Rover is positioning the new car as a mid-size one – it will be in the lineup between the Evoque and Velar.
However, thanks to the use of a platform for an electric motor, the cabin should be more spacious than in the Velar model.
The new model has not yet received an official name. Although almost certainly it will belong to the Range Rover family. This step was made in many respects for the sake of success in the Chinese car market, where overall crossovers and electric cars are very much appreciated. Therefore, this combination can significantly increase sales in the Celestial market. Next year, hybrid versions of the Range Rover and Discovery models are due to enter the market. Also at the moment, work is underway on a hybrid version of Defender – an electric version for it is not planned.
