The iconic Range Rover is going electric, and it’s been undergoing sub-zero testing in the Arctic Circle.

  • New Range Rover EV breaks cover for the first time
  • Minor styling tweaks over standard car
  • Technical details still thin on the ground
  • Performance similar to the V8 model
  • Promises to be the most refined Range Rover
  • Full reveal expected later this year

The new Range Rover EV was teased late last year, and this alternative to the BMW iX has shown its face for the first time.

It won’t come as much of a surprise to find out that it looks almost identical to the standard Range Rover, however with no engine under the bonnet it promises to be even more quiet and refined.

New Range Rover EV design

This is the first time we’ve seen pictures of the new electric Range Rover, although you wouldn’t guess if it wasn’t for the little green stripe on the number plate.

That is until you look closer, because the grille is new for the EV. With no hot engine under the bonnet there’s less need for cooling, so the mouth has been covered over for better aerodynamics.

Beyond this, it looks like Rangie business as usual. It has the same regal proportions as the standard car, with the only other notable difference being the slick sliding charging port cover.

New Range Rover EV motors and batteries

Range Rover is remaining tight-lipped about what’s powering this new electric SUV, however the petrol-powered car was designed with electrification in mind meaning it’ll use the same basic shell.

While no figures have been confirmed, Range Rover has already promised performance “comparable” to the V8 model. That car has 530hp and will do 0-60mph in 4.3 seconds, so expect to see similar figures from the electric model.

The luxury brand is also aiming for this to be the quietest and most refined Range Rover model ever made, something which will be made a lot easier by the lack of an engine up front.

When can I buy a new Range Rover EV?

You can join the waiting list for a new Range Rover EV now, however you’ll have to wait until late 2024 to see this car fully revealed. As for the price, you can expect it to fetch a premium over the standard Range Rover. A figure of around £150,000 seems likely.
