Jaguar Land Rover, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tata Motors, has opened its waiting list for its electric Range Rover. The Range Rover Electric will be built on the flexible Modular Longitudinal Architecture in Solihull, United Kingdom, alongside the existing mild and extended-range plug-in electric hybrid Range Rover vehicles, as a new 70 million pound underbody facility opens at the plant. 

Batteries and electric drive units (EDUs) will be assembled at JLR’s new Electric Propulsion Manufacturing Centre in Wolverhampton, United Kingdom.

The physical prototype testing phase is underway, and engineers are on a target to create the quietest and the most refined Range Rover ever created.

As per JLR, the car will have 800 V architecture that will enable rapid charging on public networks. 

Global on-road testing has started, from Sweden to Dubai, in temperatures ranging from -40 °C to +50 °C. The global physical testing programme has been adapted for Range Rover’s first fully electric vehicle to ensure robustness of the electric drive system, including its underfloor, battery durability, chassis integrity and vehicle dynamics tests for thermal derating. 

Geraldine Ingham, Managing Director, Range Rover said, “Since going on sale in 2021 the latest generation Range Rover has set a new benchmark for desirability. Across the globe, we’re seeing the highest levels of client demand in our 53-year history."

"Due of this unprecedented success story, we’re now opening the official wait list for the opportunity to be among the first to place a pre-order for the most anticipated Range Rover of recent times.Marking a new era for the Range Rover brand: the original luxury SUV is now available as an all-electric model," he added. 

Thomas Müller, Executive Director, Product Engineering, JLR said, “We are on target to create the quietest and most refined Range Rover ever created. The first of its type. An electric luxury SUV that can deliver on the Range Rover promise. A true global luxury product, as yet unseen in the industry. Created in the heart of the United Kingdom, the Range Rover Electric will slot into the range alongside its mild hybrid [MHEV] and plug-in electric hybrid [PHEV] siblings, offering a breadth of options to meet our clients’ needs.”
