The all-new Fifth Generation Range Rover
Since its inception, there have been only 5 generations of Range Rover’s in over 50 years. The new fifth-generation for 2022 is a significant step for Land Rover as it brings in some notable changes. For the first time, Range Rover will be available as a plug-in hybrid with seven seats.
Power, Performance & Engines
The British SUV will be launched with two plug-in hybrid options. The first is the P440e, which combines a 3.0-litre straight-six turbocharged petrol engine with a 38.2kWh battery and 141 bhp electric motor that propels the car up to 434 bhp. The second option of this vehicle is the P510e model. This version uses more power from its 3.0-litre engine and still uses the same battery and electric motor, which allows the car to hit a total 503 bhp.
Both engine variants can also travel up to 62 miles on a full charge, and Land Rover boasts a real-world zero-emission range of 50 miles. This new model also features rapid charging capability, meaning that an 80% top-up can take less than an hour.
The default setting of the car is the hybrid mode, which combines both the electric and fuel sources. Hybrid mode allows the vehicle to use predictive energy optimisation tech and geofencing to guarantee low emissions.
At the very top of the engine range, the 2022 model possesses a new 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol engine, which offers any new driver of up to 523 bhp. Whilst the top speed of this vehicle is limited to 155 mph, it can reach up 0 – 62 mph in 4.6 seconds thanks to its dynamic launch system.
The 2022 model brags a more modern evolution than the previous stylings. The front of the car has been updated with a refreshed grille to give it a new look, the LED headlights have been made to produce a better glow, and the sensors on the car have been integrated into a lower panel for a slicker appearance.
The 2022 model will not wear an engine or trim level boot badge. The standard model will come with leather; however, alternatives will be offered to improve sustainability, and this comes as Kvadrat technical Ultrafabric. Furthermore, changes have been made to the rear design of the car where the taillights and indicators have been combined into a solid-looking black panel.
This model will be the first to be offered as a seven-seater, but the standard would still be a five – seater. It adopts Land Rover’s latest Pivi Pro infotainment system with a nicely curved 13.1 – inch touchscreen dash. There is more connectivity than before as this model also has Alexa, Spotify and Apple Carplay and Android Auto integration.
