Range Rover Electric Pioneers the Future of Luxury Travel

Pushing the boundaries with Range Rover Electric. 

In the ever-evolving landscape of automotive innovation, Range Rover Electric emerges as a trailblazer, setting new standards for electric propulsion capability, refinement, and luxury travel. As the first prototypes roll out, they embark on a rigorous journey, pushing the boundaries of performance and endurance at some of the world's most formidable test locations.

From the chilling cold of the Arctic Circle to the scorching heat of Middle Eastern deserts, Range Rover Electric confronts extreme temperatures head-on. The all-electric drivetrain undergoes relentless testing, ensuring its resilience and reliability in diverse climates. At the heart of this electric marvel lies the Electric Drive Unit (EDU), comprising essential components like the transmission, electric motor, and power electronics, all meticulously crafted in-house by JLR—a testament to their commitment to excellence.

Initial tests focus on the battery and EDU's performance in sub-zero temperatures as low as -40°C. On the frozen lakes of Sweden, Range Rover Electric demonstrates its prowess with an in-house all-electric propulsion system, elevating its legendary performance on low-grip surfaces to unparalleled heights.

A groundbreaking traction control system redefines stability on icy or low-traction terrain. Unlike traditional setups, Range Rover Electric delegates wheel slip management directly to individual electric drive control units, drastically reducing torque reaction time to an astonishing 1 millisecond. This innovative approach, coupled with in-house developed software, ensures precise control and maximum traction on all surfaces, delivering a refined driving experience like never before.

Thomas Mueller, Executive Director of Product Engineering, emphasizes, "Range Rover with electric power means customary luxury, refinement, and capability, now complemented by near-silent fully electric propulsion." With a relentless commitment to testing and development, Range Rover Electric is poised to exceed expectations, ensuring unparalleled capability and refinement for discerning travellers worldwide. As we continue to push the boundaries of automotive engineering, Range Rover Electric stands as a testament to innovation and excellence, promising effortless journeys that redefine luxury travel for generations to come.
