British automaker Land Rover has unveiled the new Range Rover. The completely newly developed fifth generation of the British luxury SUV can be ordered in addition to various diesel and petrol variants as well as two plug-in hybrid versions (from January 2022), with either 324 kW (440 hp) or 375 kW (510 hp). ) Power. The new Range Rover is from 121.Available for 200 euros, the British have not yet communicated the prices for the plug-in variants. The car manufacturer has also announced a purely electric version. However, it is still a long time coming: It is scheduled to celebrate its premiere in 2024 as the first Land Rover model without exhaust emissions.
The Range Rover established the luxury SUV segment more than 50 years ago and is one of the most popular models on the market. The basis of the new Range Rover is also a new platform with the abbreviation MLA-Flex for “Flexible Modular Longitudinal Architecture” or translated: flexible modular longitudinal architecture. It can be combined with a large number of variants: with mild and plug-in hybrids, with a normal and long wheelbase and with four, five or seven seats. And, from 2024, with the all-electric variant.
The battery-electric Range Rover is intended to pave the way for other model siblings, as Land Rover intends to offer a fully electric variant in every series by the end of the decade. They aim to help Jaguar Land Rover achieve zero carbon emissions in its products, facilities and supply chain by 2039.
The drive portfolio of the new Range Rover includes two plug-in hybrids (PHEV) with a longer range and combined CO2 emissions of less than 30 g/km, which can be ordered from January 2022. According to the WLTP standard, the part-time electric vehicles can travel up to 100 kilometers purely electrically, which corresponds to around 80 kilometers in practice. This means that the typical Range Rover customer is able to do around 75 percent of their journeys exclusively electrically, according to the company in a recent press release.
Land Rover also wants to become more sustainable in the interior. That is why the selection of materials and surfaces for the Range Rover also includes a number of forward-looking solutions, such as innovative textiles such as Ultrafabrics or wool blends from Kvadrat. The textile combination of the technical Ultrafabric and the Kvadrat fabric has the same properties as traditional leather upholstery, but its production only generates a quarter of the CO2 that occurs with leather.
As standard on all variants of the new Range Rover, all-wheel steering continues to give it the tightest turning circle of any Land Rover model – and air-sprung chassis, which uses eHorizon navigation data to estimate the route ahead and fine-tune the suspension accordingly. The electronically controlled body roll compensation Dynamic Response Pro is intended to reduce body movements and thus optimize both driving comfort and agility.
The new Range Rover is a British product, developed and designed in the United Kingdom for the world’s markets. He rolls exclusively in the Land Roverarm plant Solihull from the production bands. He uses modern manufacturing facilities in a hall, in which more than 70 years ago the first country Rover models and later the UR-Range Rover. Here, Land Rover has invested massively in new production facilities to enable the installation of mild and plug-in hybrids and purely electrical variants on the same band.
