Jaguar Land Rover, the subsidiary of Tata Motors, has officially confirmed that it will reveal its all-new electrified Range Rover in 2024. The pure-electric Range Rover will be its first product in the electric-vehicle segment. This significant step, according to the car manufacturer, will help in reducing pollution and promoting environmental sustainability. The Land Rover is already available in mild hybrid and plug-in electric hybrid versions. With its electric version, the luxury brand is making its way into the all-electric space by 2024. The brand's upcoming electric vehicles will be based on its two architectures – Modular Longitudinal Architecture (MLA) and Electric Modular Architecture (EMA). The pure-electric trims, however, will be exclusively built on the EMA.
For now, the price and range information has been kept under wraps. The first all-electric Range Rover is anticipated to look similar to the ICE-powered model and will retain the latter’s off-road abilities. In terms of the engine, the model will get an all-electric powertrain. Apart from its all-new bodywork, it is claimed to have a long wheelbase.

As far as the MLA hardware is concerned, the Land Rover is likely to use a completely bespoke architecture for its all-electric cars, including the debut model. Given the competition, a single-motor version is unlikely. This means that the company may use a dual-motor AWD (All-wheel Drive) system, capable of delivering over 483 kilometres of range.
Mechanically, the upcoming Range Rover is expected to have more than 515bhp and 750Nm of torque offered by the BMW-sourced twin-turbo V8.
And while it is too early to comment on the price of the new model, there have been indications that it could be priced well above Rs 2 crore (ex-showroom). When it goes on sale, the upcoming SUV may rival the BMW iX and Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV.

Additionally, the Range Rover Sport EV and the all-electric Defender will soon be added to Land Rover’s line-up, followed by to-be-announced pure-electric variants at a later date. All this will serve as the brand's 'Reimagine' strategy, which aims to electrify its entire model range by the end of 2030.
