Land Rover hasn’t revealed many specifics about the impending electric vehicle. Jaguar Land Rover, although being a faithful follower of its parent firm, may have foreseen this. JLR said in 2017 that starting in 2020, all new Jaguar and Land Rover cars will have an electric or hybrid option.

According to Land Rover, a mild-hybrid version of the new Range Rover will be available in 2022, and a plug-in hybrid version will be available in 2023.

The 2023 extended-range plug-in hybrid will be equipped with a 48-volt mild-hybrid inline six-cylinder engine, a 105kW electric motor, and a 38.2kWh lithium-ion battery with a usable capacity of 31.8kWh. This combination will offer a pure EV range of up to 62 miles and 434 horsepower.

According to Land Rover, the 2022 Range Rover will have a new electrical vehicle architecture, known internally as EVA 2.0, that will allow the business to interface wirelessly with more than 70 electronic components. This means that through a software update, Land Rover should be able to add new capabilities to the vehicle’s infotainment system, such as a new app, or improve existing functionalities. That’s a crucial component for any automaker seeking to stay relevant in today’s tech-driven world.

The integrated voice assistant in the 2022 Range Rover will be Amazon Alexa, which can deliver news updates, check the driver’s calendar, operate some car operations, turn on lights at home, and link with other Alexa-enabled devices.

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, the in-car platforms that bring a smartphone’s look and functionalities to the vehicle’s primary screen, will also be available.
