Land Rover Range Rover EV to launch in 2025, bookings to commence in 2023
Jaguar Land Rover has revealed that it will start accepting bookings for the Range Rover EV in 2023 only, ahead of its slated launch in 2025. The Range Rover EV will be a key part of the brand's electrification strategy. This new Range Rover EV will be built at the Halewood plant of the automaker, for which the company is transforming the facility into an all-electric manufacturing plant under its Reimagine strategy, which envisions a $18.6 billion investment.
Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has laid out some major plans for the next few years. The luxury SUV brand plans to retain its Modular Longitudinal Architecture (MLA) that underpins the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport. This platform allows the company to build vehicles with internal combustion engines, hybrid power mills, and batteries. Overall, this platform gives the car brand flexibility in producing cars for the requirements of various markets worldwide.

Jaguar has stated that this EV will have more power output than any previous brand model.
