In 2025, one of the most famous and luxurious SUVs in the car world is making a big change - it's going electric. We're talking about the Land Rover Range Rover SUV which is currently being tested. We got a sneak peek through a short video, and now it's confirmed to be coming in early 2025.

Before Land Rover unveils its first all-electric SUV, let's talk about what we can expect from it:

Luxury Design

The Land Rover Range Rover has always been known for its luxury, and the electric version won't be any different. It'll look almost the same as its traditional versions, but with a few hints that it's electric, like 'EV' badges on the hub caps. So, expect a sleek exterior with smooth lines and curved panels. Inside, the cabin will be just as luxurious, if not more so, with lots of soft leather, big screens, and plenty of fancy gadgets.

Improved Performance

With an electric motor powering it, the Range Rover will be quiet and smooth, without any engine noise or vibrations. It'll have that distinctive sound of electric cars but overall, the experience will feel more refined. It'll use an 800-Volt system, meaning it can charge super quickly. In terms of power, Land Rover says the electric Range Rover will be as fast as the V8 version, which does 0-100kmph in 4.6 seconds. With the instant power of electric motors, it might even be a bit quicker. For various variants, you should also expect varying battery capacities and motor possibilities. Even though it's not as rugged as the Defender, the Range Rover still has Land Rover's off-road DNA, so the electric version will be just as capable, even able to wade through water up to 850mm deep.

High Demand, High Price

Even though the electric Range Rover won't be available for another year, lots of people are already eager to get their hands on one. Over 16,000 have signed up to buy it, which is a huge number. But get ready for a big shock when it comes to the price. The regular Range Rover costs between Rs 2.38 crore and Rs 4.30 crore (ex-showroom), and the electric one is expected to be even more expensive, possibly crossing the Rs 5 crore mark for the top models. That's a hefty price tag but you will be getting a whole lot of cars for it.

Competitive Landscape

In the electric SUV segment, the Range Rover will compete with models like the BMW iX, Audi Q8 e-tron, and the upcoming Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV.

In the process of embracing electrification and establishing a new benchmark for luxury SUVs the electric Range Rover aims to maintain its heritage of luxury and competence.
