First pictures: 2024 Range Rover Electric shown in full

No specific technical details or performance figures have yet been given, however, beyond the earlier confirmation that it will use an 800V charging architecture. 

JLR opened the waiting list for the first electric Range Rover in December last year and by February claimed to have taken more than 16,000 expressions of interest.

While the waiting list only gives an indication of interested customers, rather than a formal reservation, JLR boss Adrian Mardell said the firm was “excited about the strong client interest” in the EV. 

Although bosses have yet to give any performance details for the new Range Rover, it has been promised to have the same “go-anywhere” capability as the ICE version, with a pledge that it will offer towing, wading and all-terrain capability that will exceed any other luxury electric SUV – including the ability to wade through 850mm-deep water.

The hint that the Range Rover Electric will offer performance “comparable” to the existing V8 suggests a total output close to the 523bhp that model offers.

It’s expected to adopt a dual-motor system, which will allow for greater four-wheel-drive ability and systems such as torque vectoring to boost its off-road potential.
