A video of tests of the fifth generation Range Rover at the Nürburgring race track has appeared on the web. As in the early spy photos, the test prototype is completely covered with camouflage film, but we can already conclude that the modernization will not bring significant changes to the model’s appearance.
The new Range Rover is known to be built on the Modular Longitudinal Architecture (MLA) platform with a longitudinal engine arrangement. According to preliminary data, the SUV will be lighter than its predecessor, which will positively affect the dynamics and efficiency.
Land Rover’s flagship will become the most technically advanced in the entire half-century history of the model. The Range Rover is expected to debut a plug-in hybrid, followed by an all-electric version with a 100 kilowatt-hour battery and a range of up to 480 kilometers. In addition, with a change of generation, the SUV will add in luxury to compete with the all-wheel drive crossover Bentley Bentayga and Rolls-Royce Cullinan.
The assembly of the new Range Rover will be organized at the Solihull plant, which has already invested about £ 500 million in the modernization. The premiere of the fifth generation model may take place this year, and the electric SUV will debut in 2022.
