Range Rover Set To Launch Its First Electric Vehicle In Late 2021

Jaguar Land Rover hasn’t been shy about their intentions to launch an assortment of electric vehicles, but most of the attention has been focused on Jaguar which has already introduced the I-Pace.

Land Rover is also planning to launch electric vehicles and Autocar reports the first model will arrive in late 2021.

The model is reportedly being developed alongside the Jaguar XJ and is rumored to target upcoming crossovers such as the Audi E-Tron Sportback and Porsche Macan EV. The crossover was previously known as the Road Rover, but it is now being referred to as the “medium SUV.”

As the name suggests, the crossover will be a mid-sized model that will reportedly slot between the Evoque and Velar in terms of size. However, it is slated to have a lower roof and a sleeker front end to maximize its aerodynamics.

Despite being smaller than the Velar, the packaging benefits of the electric vehicle architecture could mean the model will have a roomier cabin. We can also expect a number of high-tech features such as a digital instrument cluster and a Touch Pro Duo infotainment system.

Little else is known about the model, but it is expected to be based on the Modular Longitudinal Platform and be the most road-focused Range Rover ever created. However, the crossover should retain some off-road cred as it is slated to have two electric motors and all-wheel drive.

There’s no word on specifications at this point, but the platform has been designed to accommodate batteries with a capacity of up to 90.2 kWh. This means the model could have a range of up to 290 miles (467 km) on a single charge.
