Great News for Electric SUV Lovers, Both the drivetrain and chassis of the Range Rover Electric (EV) are being redesigned for the electric model for 2024. Like the current gas-powered Range, the Range Rover EV version will have a long wheelbase and be able to seat seven people across three rows. Wheel articulation space is reduced thanks to a redesigned multilink suspension setup, freeing up the area for the EV’s battery and rear-wheel steering system.
What’s New for 2024
It’s no secret that Land Rover is revamping its product portfolio. By 2030, 60 percent of Land Rover’s vehicle sales are projected to be electric vehicles, therefore the business plans to have a battery-electric alternative available for every SUV model it sells. The first electric vehicle will be the Range Rover EV, an all-electric version of the new Range Rover. Since it was added in 2024, its debut might come as early as 2023.
Later this year, we should hear more about the 2024 Range Rover EV from both official and unofficial sources. The new electric SUV is still a mystery, but here is what we do know about it thus far.
The 2024 Land Rover Range Rover Electric will come out in three trim levels.
- SE:$120,000 (estimated)
- HSE:$140,000 (estimated)
- Autobiography: $160,000 (estimated)
The first electric Land Rover to come from the factory will be the Range Rover EV, which will be followed by an electric version of the Range Rover Sport and an electric version of the Defender. At a later time, there will be an additional three Land Rover electric vehicles that have not yet been disclosed.
2024 Land Rover Range Rover Electric Performance
Range Rover’s new generation utilizes the MLA Flex platform, which is designed to accommodate gas, hybrid, and all-electric powertrains. It was created with electric conversion in mind and a low coefficient of drag. We anticipate that it will resemble the combustion model, perhaps with a faux grille and a few EV-specific design elements.
The 2024 Range Rover EV and other Land Rover vehicles are being equipped for off-roading. Even the current Evoque model can wade through water approximately two feet deep.
The 2024 Range Rover EV will likely employ a dual-motor AWD system. We wouldn’t be surprised if the EV version surpasses the 523 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque of the BMW-sourced V8 in the current Range Rover. And Land Rover would likely aim for a range in the vicinity of 300 miles; they likely won’t be technically able to achieve much more, and won’t be able to sell a vehicle with much less range.
