The off-road vehicle of 2022 was spotted by photo spies in tight camouflage.

Yes, the Range Rover 2022 arrived in Germany for dynamic tests, and although it is still completely disguised, these photos of the parked prototype taken from a short distance allow us to take a better look at the upcoming flagship luxury SUV.

Close-up shots show details such as retractable door handles, parts of LED headlights and taillights, as well as a bottom view of the SUV. We can note that this particular prototype has real four exhausts, which suggests that it is equipped with an excellent V8 engine.

Also, the spies were able to look inside, although there is practically nothing to consider here, since the dashboard is covered with fabric. Only the multi-function steering wheel is partially disclosed, but it is pretty clear that it is still under development.

The 2022 Range Rover will remain an impressive SUV. The style will be evolutionary, with many design tips picked up by Range Rover Velar. The interior is expected to be more high-tech and luxurious than ever before, at least in the cabin there will be three digital screens (for the dashboard, infotainment system and climate control).

The fifth-generation Range Rover will switch to a completely new platform, modular longitudinal architecture (MLA), which will be used in conjunction with the next-generation Range Rover Sport and the future Jaguar XJ.

The aluminum intensive platform will help Range Rover to lose significant weight and gain speed thanks to the latest technological advances. It is expected that the flagship SUV will offer soft hybrid, hybrid and fully electric options, including a PHEV with an electric range of 50 km.

An all-electric Range Rover should appear at least one year after the launch of six- and eight-cylinder gasoline and diesel power units. Speaking of which, we note that the 4.4-liter Twin-Turbo V8 gasoline supplied by BMW will reportedly replace the 5.0-liter supercharged V8. Rumor has it that the Bavarians will offer other engines and electric drives.

The all-new Range Rover is due to appear in dealerships sometime in 2021, which means that the debut could happen closer to the end of this year.
