A New Electrified Range Rover for 2023

The 2023 Range Rover will offer a plug-in hybrid model with close to 80 kilometers of electric range

The British-born brand’s flagship model is all new and beautiful for the new year. The 2023 Land Rover Range Rover comes with a familiar – and sleeker – silhouette, but it also has a lot of improvements under the hood, including a plug-in hybrid livery that could appeal to customers who don’t mind going on adventures in this living room on wheels.

The Range Rover is already known as one of the world’s most comfortable SUVs and the 2023 model year is no exception, but the arrival of new powertrains is good news for consumers.

In addition to the base P400 model, which combines a turbocharged inline six-cylinder engine with a mild hybrid system, the P440e takes the same six-cylinder unit and adds a 31.8 kWh battery pack and a 105 kW electric motor, the latter of which is housed between the transmission and the gas engine. In addition to the 434 horsepower generated by the gasoline-electric tandem, the Range Rover P440e can travel up to 77 km in pure electric mode. Thanks to its 50kW fast charging accounting, the Range Rover P440e can also be recharged up to 80 percent of its charge in about an hour. The plug-in hybrid version comes with a starting price of $131,100.

It will be interesting to see how the public responds to this intermediate option. In fact, as early as 2024, the automaker will release a purely electric version of its flagship SUV. At the time of writing, the Jaguar Land Rover Group is only counting on the Jaguar I-PACE for its electric offensive. The automaker, like the vast majority of automakers, is also planning to go electric in the next few years.

Jaguar Land Rover Canada has also added an SV trim to its Range Rover lineup. The SV trim is the most luxurious in the lineup, which explains its $213,800 entry price. The use of exclusive materials and components makes this version unique next to other Range Rovers. Imagined by the SVR (Special Vehicles Operation) wing, the Range Rover SV can, according to the brand, be configured in over 1.6 million combinations.

The design of the SV model is distinguished by its five-bar grille at the front, as well as its side badges and optional 23-inch wheels. Inside, we’re talking glossy plated metals, smooth ceramics, sustainably sourced woods and soft quasi-aniline leather, as well as durable non-leather materials.

Under the hood of this more affluent livery, BMW’s excellent 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 (523 hp) powers the Range Rover SV, which can be ordered in either regular or long form. The two new models are already available for order on the brand’s Canadian website.
