The electric Range Rover was shown for the first time during final testing


The Range Rover Electric posed for official photographers during prototype tests in cold weather beyond the Arctic Circle. Land Rover is also testing a quiet SUV in the deserts of the Middle East.

It is advertised as “the quietest and most refined Range Rover ever created” and features a newly developed traction control system. Compared to a standard ABS-based system, it can distribute wheel slip control to each electric drive unit. This reduces the torque reaction time on each wheel from around 100 milliseconds to 1 millisecond.

Land Rover does not say much about the drive yet, but performance and dynamics similar to the eight-cylinder engine are expected, i.e. a system output of around 500 horsepower.

The EV will use the same Modular Longitudinal Architecture (MLA) as the entry-level version with internal combustion engines and will have an 800-volt architecture for fast charging.

The upcoming SUV will be JLR’s second electric model after the Jaguar I-Pace launched in 2018. While the smaller EV is assembled by Magna Steyr in Graz, Austria, the Range Rover Electric will be manufactured in Solihull, UK.

The new product will be a stepping stone towards JLR’s goal of achieving zero exhaust gas emissions by 2036.

The Range Rover Sport in an electric version is due to arrive this year
