Extended-range PHEVs: 510PS and 440PS plug-in hybrids with all-electric range of up to 100km1, available with sustainable leather-free textiles

Whitley, UK – Land Rover has revealed the New Range Rover at the Royal Opera House in London. The next generation defines modern luxury by design, providing more refinement, customer choice and scope for personalization than ever before.

Range Rover is the original luxury SUV and has led by example for 50 years, combining serene comfort and composure with all-conquering capability. The New Range Rover is the most desirable yet, effortlessly combining breathtaking modernity and aesthetic grace with technological sophistication and seamless connectivity – with space for up to seven adults for the first time.

The fifth-generation luxury SUV takes Land Rover’s modernist design philosophy to the next level with a contemporary interpretation of its trademark profile to create an incredible design statement.

The New Range Rover combines advanced technology with modern luxury to deliver peerless refinement for every occupant and is the first model to use Land Rover’s new flexible Modular Longitudinal Architecture.

MLA-Flex can accommodate internal combustion, plug-in hybrid and 100 percent electric powertrains. It represents the next step in Land Rover’s simplified architecture strategy as part of the move to deliver greater powertrain flexibility and set new quality benchmarks.

It is available with a choice of efficient mild-hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrains and four, five or seven-seat interiors across Standard and Long Wheelbase body designs. A pure-electric Range Rover – the first all-electric Land Rover – will join the line-up in 2024.

The pure-electric New Range Rover will be the first in a series of all-electric Land Rovers. Every nameplate will be available with pure-electric propulsion by the end of the decade, helping Jaguar Land Rover achieve net-zero carbon across its products, operations and supply chain by 2039.

The extended Range plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) powertrains provide CO2 emissions below 30g/km, with a WLTP certified pure-electric driving range of up to 100km (62 miles).1 They deliver an expected real-world pure-electric driving range of up to 80km (50 miles) – enough for typical Range Rover customers to complete up to 75 percent of trips using electric power only 5.

A suite of innovative technologies contributes to the New Range Rover’s peerless comfort and refinement. New third-generation Active Noise Cancellation4 technology delivers one of the quietest cabins on the road. It builds on the hushed and sealed body architecture by using microphones on the outside of the vehicle and headrest speakers on the inside to create personal quiet zones for the cabin occupants – much like high-end active noise-canceling headphones.

The New Range Rover offers intuitive voice control with Amazon Alexa built-in2. Using natural voice commands enables customers to manage everything from favorite infotainment features and music track selection to navigation or phone contacts – all while keeping their hands on the wheel and their eyes on the road.

Comfort and wellbeing are enhanced by Cabin Air Purification Pro3, which combines dual-nanoeTM X technology for allergen reduction and pathogen removal to help significantly reduce odors and viruses, while CO2 Management and PM2.5 Cabin Air Filtration enhance air quality. Advanced nanoeTM X technology is scientifically proven to significantly reduce viruses and bacteria including SARS-CoV-2 viruses3.

Sustainability extends beyond the choice of efficient powertrains, with innovative materials and processes combined to reduce the environmental impact of producing and driving the New Range Rover. These include a Kvadrat™ remix wool blend fabric that will be offered as a leather-free interior option. Its wool blend is warm and cossetting, making it the perfect cloth to accompany the technical Ultrafabrics™ material, which has all the tactile qualities of leather but is 30 percent lighter and generates only a quarter of the CO2.

Customary Range Rover capability and composure is provided by Land Rover’s pioneering Integrated Chassis Control system, which controls the most comprehensive array of chassis technologies ever fitted to a vehicle of this kind. All-Wheel Steering provides greater high-speed stability and the tightest turning circle of any Land Rover, while advanced Electronic Air Suspension pre-emptively reacts to the road ahead using eHorizon navigation data. New Dynamic Response Pro technology provides fast-reacting electronic roll control for elevated composure and agility in all environments.

The all-new fifth-generation Range Rover has been designed, developed and engineered in the UK and will be produced exclusively at Land Rover’s Solihull Manufacturing Facility – the historic home of Range Rover – on a new state-of-the-art production line. The investment at the plant will drive enhanced quality, with assembly of efficient mild-hybrid, plug-in hybrid and pure-electric examples of the New Range Rover on the same line.
