Range Rover Electric 2025: Australian order book now open for brand’s first electric luxury SUV


Land Rover has teased its upcoming electric Range Rover SUV, with waiting lists now commencing locally  

Land Rover has officially teased its upcoming first-ever full-electric Range Rover SUV.

It will be the first time in Range Rover’s history that a model will be offered with a choice of electric power. 

The British car maker has stated that “prototypes are now being subjected to one of most rigorous engineering sign-off programmes ever – to confirm capability spanning extreme temperatures, all conditions and every terrain”.

The Range Rover electric will join the rest of the Range Rover lineup, including petrol and petrol electric hybrid variants. 

Land Rover promises that the Range Rover electric will “deliver performance comparable to a flagship Range Rover V8”. The electric luxury SUV will likely compete with other high-end electric SUVs such as the BMW iX, the Mercedes-Benz EQE SUV and the Audi Q8 E-Tron

More information is set to arrive in the early stages of 2024.

What we know so far about the electric luxury SUV

Set to be built on 800-volt battery architecture and the flexible MLA (Modular Longitudinal Architecture) platform, the future Range Rover electric will be built in the United Kingdom. 

The batteries and electric drive motors will also be built in the UK, rather than in factories such as the ones in China, Japan and South Korea. 

It’s almost certain that the Range Rover’s electric powertrain will consist of two electric motors – one front and one rear – for all-wheel-drive capability.

A battery size of around 80-100kWh is expected, but further details are yet to be confirmed. The platform can accept both combustion and EV drivetrains. 

Last year, Land Rover Australia confirmed that it would bring six new pure-electric models over the next five years.

An electric Land Rover Defender and Discovery are also on the cards.
