New Range Rover Unveiled at Star-Studded Event at the Royal Opera House
Royal Opera House, London, UK: Land Rover has revealed the New Range Rover at the Royal Opera House in London. The next generation defines modern luxury by design, providing more refinement, customer choice and scope for personalisation than ever before.
The New Range Rover can trace its origins back through the generations; the falling roofline, strong waistline – with its horizontal emphasis – and lower rising sill. The characteristically short front overhang, formal front end, upright windscreen and distinctive boat tail rear, which tapers in plain view, are key elements in defining Range Rover’s proportions and conveying its peerless presence.
Flush elements and tight tolerances are a hallmark of the New Range Rover and design-enabling technologies contribute to its sophisticated honed-from-solid appearance, include flush glazing, a hidden waist rail finisher and seamless laser-welded roof joints. The distinctive hidden-until-lit rear lights are also critical to the success of the design and will become a Range Rover signature.
Also unveiled at the Royal Opera House, the New Range Rover SV will give customers even more scope to create a truly individual vehicle when it goes on sale in 2022.
Thierry Bolloré, Chief Executive Officer, Jaguar Land Rover, said:
The New Range Rover is a superb manifestation of our vision to create the world’s most desirable luxury vehicles, for the most discerning of customers. It writes the next chapter in the unique story of pioneering innovation that has been a Range Rover hallmark for more than 50 years.
Prof Gerry McGovern OBE, Chief Creative Officer, Jaguar Land Rover, said:
It is possible to respect your DNA and still project forwards – and that is what we have done. The modernist nature of our design philosophy doesn’t follow fashion or trend. It’s free from superfluous detail, resulting in a form which speaks to modernity, yet is full of charm and delivers new levels of emotional engagement. The new Range Rover is quite simply the most desirable ever created.
It is available with a choice of efficient mild-hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrains and four, five or seven-seat interiors across Standard and Long Wheelbase body designs. A pure-electric Range Rover – the first all-electric Land Rover – will join the line-up in 2024.
The pure-electric New Range Rover will be the first in a series of all-electric Land Rovers. Every nameplate will be available with pure-electric propulsion by the end of the decade, helping Jaguar Land Rover achieve net zero carbon across its products, operations and supply chain by 2039.
The extended Range plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) powertrains provide CO2 emissions below 30g/km, with a WLTP certified pure-electric driving range of up to 100km (62 miles). They deliver an expected real-world pure-electric driving range of up to 80km (50 miles) – enough for typical Range Rover customers to complete up to 75 per cent of trips using electric power only.
The all-new fifth-generation Range Rover has been designed, developed and engineered in the UK and will be produced exclusively at Land Rover’s Solihull Manufacturing Facility – the historic home of Range Rover – on a new state-of-the-art production line. The investment at the plant will drive enhanced quality, with assembly of efficient mild-hybrid, plug-in hybrid and pure-electric examples of the New Range Rover on the same line.
