Whitley, UK – Land Rover has revealed the New Range Rover at the Royal Opera House in London. The next generation defines modern luxury by design, providing more refinement, customer choice and scope for personalisation than ever before.
Range Rover is the original luxury SUV and has led by example for 50 years, combining serene comfort and composure with all-conquering capability. The New Range Rover is the most desirable yet, effortlessly combining breath-taking modernity and aesthetic grace with technological sophistication and seamless connectivity – with space for up to seven adults.
The fifth-generation luxury SUV takes Land Rover’s modernist design philosophy to the next level with a contemporary interpretation of its trademark profile to create an incredible design statement.
The New Range Rover can trace its origins back through the generations; the falling roofline, strong waistline – with its horizontal emphasis – and lower rising sill.
The characteristically short front overhang, formal front end, upright windscreen, and distinctive boat tail rear, which tapers in plain view, are key elements in defining Range Rover’s proportions and conveying its peerless presence.
Flush elements and tight tolerances are a hallmark of the New Range Rover and design-enabling technologies contribute to its sophisticated honed-from-solid appearance, including flush glazing, a hidden waist rail finisher and seamless laser-welded roof joints. The distinctive hidden-until-lit rear lights are also critical to the success of the design and will become a Range Rover signature.
Also unveiled at the Royal Opera House, the New Range Rover SV will give customers even more scope to create a truly individual vehicle when it goes on sale in 2022.
The SV model is an exquisite interpretation of Range Rover luxury and personalisation, epitomising exceptional craftsmanship. Materials for exclusive Range Rover SV design details include lustrous plated metals, smooth ceramics, intricate mosaic marquetry, as well as a choice of high-grade leathers or sustainable non-leather Ultrafabrics™. Additional design themes including SV Serenity and SV Intrepid introduce two-tone front-to-rear contrasting interior colourways, while the sumptuous four-seat SV Signature Suite features functional enhancements including an electrically deployable Club Table and refrigerator.
This hand-crafted model will be the first vehicle to carry the new ceramic SV roundel and naming strategy and will be known simply as Range Rover SV. The SV roundel represents Special Vehicle Operations’ design and engineering passion for modern luxury, performance, and capability. The SV roundel will identify all new Land Rover vehicles launched by Special Vehicle Operations in the future.
The New Range Rover combines advanced technology with modern luxury to deliver peerless refinement for every occupant and is the first model to use Land Rover’s new flexible Modular Longitudinal Architecture.
MLA-Flex can accommodate internal combustion, plug-in hybrid, and 100 percent electric powertrains. It represents the next step in Land Rover’s simplified architecture strategy as part of the move to deliver greater powertrain flexibility and set new quality benchmarks.
It is available with a choice of efficient mild-hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrains and four, five or seven-seat interiors across Standard and Long Wheelbase body designs. A pure-electric Range Rover – the first all-electric Land Rover – will join the line-up in 2024.
