The automotive future is electric and Land Rover has said it will have six EVs available by 2025 – with the first Land Rover EV model due in 2024.
With the first Land Rover EV in the works, the luxury brand is sure to catapult the luxury brand to an unparalleled level.
According to recent data, about 45 percent of new car sales could be electric by 2025. That means that about half of the cars on the road would be electric by 2050.
Jaguar Land Rover is leading the charge and has announced plans to have EV versions of its entire lineup by 2039.
It’s all part of Jaguar Land Rover’s Reimagine plans.
Land Rover has long challenged what’s possible since it began more than seven decades ago, always making the world’s most capable and luxurious SUVs. Now the company is going electric, with new levels of sustainability, responsiveness, and refinement.
Land Rover’s new range of current plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) meet each mile with zero tailpipe emissions in full Electric Vehicle (EV) mode and significantly reduced emissions in Hybrid mode.
This enables you, the driver, to minimize your carbon footprint as you explore the world under just about any kind of driving conditions.
Land Rover’s plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) and mild hybrids (MHEVs) complement legendary Land Rover’s capability with the near-silent immediacy of electric power and the increased refinement that comes with it.
And starting in 2024 you will be able to choose from the first of six new all-electric Land Rovers. This is a significant step in the company’s vision to dramatically reduce pollution and achieve a truly sustainable future.
As we wait for the first Land Rover EV, the luxury brand currently offers the following types of powertrains:
Plug-in hybrid (PHEV).
This is a petrol engine and electric motor combined. Switch from pure electric commuting with zero tailpipe emissions to a mix of petrol and electric power for lower emissions on longer journeys. Charging the electric side of your PHEV is easy from home or at your destination.
Mild Hybrid (MHEV).
There’s no charging required. Supported by a small electric motor, Land Rover MHEVs enhance the efficiency and refinement of their petrol and diesel engines by reusing energy collected through deceleration and regenerative braking.
You can charge at home or away. A home charger is the most convenient and cost-effective way to start every day with a full charge. Destination charging is perfect for a timely top-up away from home.
And because it’s a Land Rover you won’t sacrifice capability.
Heading off the beaten track, you’ll find electricity delivers instant power for the most demanding of terrains and departure angles. And when it comes to wading1 through water and exceptional ground clearance, there is simply no compromise. Other benefits include significant tax savings to lower running costs and no charges in congestion zones. In other words, a Land Rover PHEV could help you save money all year round.
And with zero tailpipe emissions in full Electric Vehicle (EV) mode, you have the power to reduce your impact on the planet with every PHEV journey.
Coming in 2024: The Land Rover Range Rover EV.
Starting at $120,000, the EV version of the Range Rover, Land Rover’s top model, is taking a huge step toward a fully electric future using an all-new platform that can adapt gas, plug-in hybrid, or electric propulsion.
Details are few but expect the Range Rover EV to retain the luxury and sturdy off-road capability that’s always been synonymous with the brand since entered the United States market in 1987.
The 2024 Range Rover EV will have a new full-electric powertrain as well as an all-new chassis. It will be based on the long-wheelbase model and with that, you can expect three rows of seating. Moreover, a new multilink suspension reduces the space needed for wheel articulation leading to extra room to house the EV’s battery and rear-wheel steering system, according to recent media reports.
