The Range Rover has long been a luxury SUV with off-road ability, and now it is going electric. The Range Rover EV is based on a new platform that will allow it to adapt to gas, plug-in hybrid, or electric propulsion. It’s also expected to be one of the most capable and luxurious electric SUVs available, and is set to go on sale in 2024.
Which Range Rover is most costly?
The land rover electric EV should be a good mix of luxury and off-road capability, and it will probably retain the plushness and rugged off-road capabilities that have made the Range Rover so popular for decades. It will likely be powered by a range of new powertrains developed by Jaguar Land Rover, including next-generation electric drive systems.
Electrification will also give the Range Rover more power and torque. This could lead to the Range Rover EV being better off-road than its combustion counterpart, thanks to more weight distribution, higher ground clearance, and torque vectoring.
As a result, the Land Rover electric will likely offer more driving range and performance than its traditional gasoline-powered rivals, and it will likely be more efficient as well. This will likely come from the use of wide-bandgap semiconductors such as Silicon Carbide.
Land Rover has partnered with Wolfspeed to source these wide-bandgap semiconductors for the inverters used in its future electric vehicles, starting with the Range Rover EV in 2024. The inverters are important because they help convert electricity to mechanical motion.
