From gas guzzler to eco warrior: New £95,000 Range Rover is unveiled – including all-electric version from 2024
A fully electric Range Rover will go on sale to customers within three years, bosses have announced, as they took the wraps off the all-new fifth generation flagship 4X4.
The iconic luxury SUV that can also cut it off road has devoted fans including the Queen and the country set, as well as Premiership footballers, captains of industry, celebrities and rap-stars.
It will be the first of six fully electric Land Rovers, spearheading a full-range of battery-powered models to follow.
And in the wake of her recent environmental pronouncements on the state of the planet, it is likely Her Majesty and her Royal Household will be among the first – if not the first – to take delivery of the battery-powered electric Range Rover that’s truly fit for a ‘green’ Queen.From gas guzzler to eco warrior: This is the new fifth-generation Range Rover that – in 2024 – will be available as a fully-electric vehicle
Along with a petrol-electric plug-in hybrid version and – for the first time – the option of an additional two passengers with a family-friendly seven seat layout, bosses hope the ‘electrification’ of the British designed and built Range Rover off-roader will help banish forever its ‘gas-guzzler’ reputation.
The announcement that a pollution-free pure electric Range Rover hitting showrooms from 2024 came as the firm unveiled the new fifth-generation incarnation of its luxury 4X4 first launched more than five decades ago in 1970.
It has been specially designed on a flexible new platform which allows engineers to power it with both electric motors and batteries, as well as more conventional petrol, diesel and hybrid propulsion, with prices starting from £94,400.
