CEOs and MDs of SME businesses have probably been waiting for this: the all-electric Range Rover.
It offers the opportunity to experience Range Rover luxury and finesse within a low company car tax package – sounds quite the bargain.
And if you want one, then Range Rover is offering the opportunity to get on the pre-order list.
Apart from offering the uplifted modern luxury credentials you would expect from a Range Rover, JLR says it will also provide the go-anywhere capability, towing, wading and all-terrain technology for which the model has become renowned.
Prototype testing is now under way, with engineers targeting the quietest and most refined Range Rover with active road noise cancellation.
New Range Rover Electric will be designed, engineered and built in the United Kingdom, on the flexible Modular Longitudinal Architecture (MLA) in Solihull, alongside existing mild and plug-in hybrid Range Rover vehicles. For the first time, batteries and EDUs will be built and assembled at JLR’s new Electric Propulsion Manufacturing Centre in Wolverhampton, west Midlands, as Range Rover electrifies ahead of its 2039 net-zero carbon ambition.
