New Land Rover Range Rover will appear on timeApril 28, 2020
The all-new fifth-generation Range Rover is in the early stages of testing before being shown at the end of 2021, and is tasked with taking Jaguar Land Rover out of the recession caused by coronavirus.
Pictures of a disguised prototype show a large SUV undergoing winter trials. They also demonstrate how the position of the new Range Rover, based on the JLR Modular Architecture (MLA), will change. Even with the hidden model Mk5, Land Rover design studio managed to give the SUV an even more impressive and impressive appearance, which is extremely important for the commercial attractiveness of Range Rover.
A careful review of the photographs suggests that the “face” of the new model is not so different from the face of the current vehicle, marked by a wide and deep grille and narrow headlights in the Velar style. The company’s new flagship will replace the current Range Rover, which was launched back in 2012, and should give the JLR a much-needed high margin increase.
The fourth-generation Range Rover was a very important product for the company, selling 53,000 units worldwide last year. It is known that JLR and BMW are working on the development of electric motors that will be used on MLA-based vehicles and are expected to be built at the JLR Ingenium plant near Wolves.
The transition of the engine factory, at least in part, to the production of electric drive modules (EDMs) suggests that the JLR may use other BMW engines for the MLA platform. Given the huge investment in planned Euro 7 diesel engines, liquid fuel engines could become a serious contender for a joint JLR and BMW project.
Hybrid versions of the Range Rover Mk5 plug-in models are expected to have one electric motor on the rear axle as well as another built-in gearbox. It has been argued that the electrically-driven rear axle will further improve the vehicle’s off-road capabilities due to its ability to accurately measure torque.
