News: 2022 Range Rover Lineup Previewed


All-New Luxury SUV Gets Electrified

If you are seeking a bona fide representation of automotive luxury, look no further than the all-new 2022 Range Rover. The wow factor doesn’t end with sumptuous leather and wood, as in 2023 there will be a plug-in hybrid version, to be followed by an all-electric Range Rover in 2024. But the news doesn’t end there.

Range Rover’s parent company, Jaguar Land Rover, has set a goal that every vehicle they sell by the end of the decade will be available with “pure-electric propulsion,” helping JLR achieve net zero carbon across its vehicles, operations and suppliers by 2039. All of this is no easy step, and Clean Fleet Report applauds JLR for making this commitment to a cleaner environment and a cleaner world.

Luxury and Efficiency

The 2023 and 2024 Range Rovers, utilizing electricity in some form, will make a statement by JLR, a storied United Kingdom company that was established in 1948 and is now part of Tata Motors Limited of India. The all-new 2022 Range Rover will come with two powertrains (one an extension of the mild hybrid [MHEV] that they currently use), two wheelbases, three seating layouts and four trims. While Range Rover didn’t reveal many details of the 2023 Range Rover at its press conference on November 15 in Los Angeles, we did learn something about what can be expected in dealers in 2022.

2023 Range Rover
Continuing a luxury tradition

Observations: 2023 Range Rover

The fifth-generation 2022 Range Rover is all new and begins the electrification of all Land Rover and Range Rover models. The head-to-head competition for the Range Rover will soon be restricted to other luxury brands that convert all their gasoline power plants to some form of electric power. Range Rover is getting the jump on this rarified market segment with the 2022 mild hybrid, to be followed by the 2023 Range Rover PHEV that is estimated to go 62 miles on pure electricity and then the 2024 full-electric model. Dealers are taking orders now for spring 2022 deliveries.

Come back to Clean Fleet Report for more news and reviews, sometime next year. We look forward to experiencing the Range Rover and testing its performance, handling, technology, range and reporting on fuel-efficient luxury.
