The brand owned by Tata located in Solihull will accompany in electrification throughout its line-up; which will include a hybrid next-generation Range Rover and three full-electric models.

After a long and turbulent 18 months, this autumn, Land Rover will be initiating an extremely significant two-year period of consolidation and expansion. The move taken will define the brand for the next decade.

A great part of the activity will not only relate to just the launch of four new vehicles but also to increased electrification within its line-up. The sibling brand Jaguar is currently leading the group in this market segment, although the marque’s pure-electric vehicles are still years away. The new set of Land Rover models from late 2019 will be offered with 2 drivetrain variants that are a mild-hybrid or plug-in hybrid.

Land Rover engineers are ambitious that the new architecture and downsizing the engine combined will offset the weight of the battery pack that will offer about 64km of purely electric drive.

The new Range Rover Evoque, which is running on a completely re-engineered platform, is already available with a mild-hybrid setup in the immediate future, assisted by a belt driven starter.
