Underpinning the upcoming Range Rover Electric will be Jaguar Land Rover’s flexible Modular Longitudinal Architecture (MLA). The Range Rover Electric SUV will have an 800-volt charging architecture that will allow the car for rapid charging. This EV architecture claims to make the SUV able to wade through up to 850 mm of water and support over-the-air (OTA) software updates.

The automaker has said that it has started testing the physical prototypes of the upcoming Range Rover Electric all around the world, from the cold of Sweden to the sweltering conditions of Dubai. JLR claimed to be rigorously testing and evaluating the robustness of the electric SUV's drive system, battery pack, and chassis integrity while also conducting vehicle dynamics tests for thermal derating. Speaking about opening the waiting list, JLR said that those who put their name on the list will be among the first to have the opportunity to place a pre-order.

Speaking about the upcoming luxury electric SUV, JLR's product engineering executive director Thomas Muller said the automaker is on target to create the quietest and most refined Range Rover ever created. “The magic ingredients that underpin the success of Range Rover remain unchanged: timeless, reductionist design, a serene cabin and go-anywhere capability – but now offered with zero tailpipe emissions. And as repeated throughout history, the Range Rover will continue to set the standard. The first of its type. An electric luxury SUV that can deliver on the Range Rover promise. A true global luxury product, as yet unseen in the industry," he added.
