The New 2022 Range Rover
Range Rover and Land Rover has stunned audiences with the new 2022 Range Rover being revealed. Its futuresque redesign through its reductive nature adds to its modernity and new body. But not to panic, Land Rover has still maintained Range Rover’s rich bloodline and fundamental features. Now before we get into the specifications that truly set the new Range Rover apart from other SUVs being produced right now the most important question lingers…… and I’ll give you one guess as to what it is.
Did you guess? Well if you thought ‘What is the price of the new 2022 Range Rover?’ you would be correct. Wait no further. The starting price in the UK sits at £94,400.00 and ranges to £120,000.00 depending on any features/add-ons you decide. So unless you’re a winner of the national lottery, who wants to be a millionaire, OR just going through a midlife crisis you may not be able to cash-in-hand this one. If you’re an average person like you and me, I suggest going for the cost-effective finance option – like everything else in this world. It is something to get your hands on, however, as this will be the last Range Rover to be sold as petrol or diesel engines and the first to be sold as fully electric. Making it the first of its kind, a truly life-changing event for Land Rover. This also answers the second most important question regarding the production of cars in 2022…. ‘Is the new 2022 Range Rover electric?’ Now that the most important questions are out of the way, it’s time to pick apart and discuss WHY Range Rovers are so expensive and how this one is set apart from its predecessor.
Engine, Power, and Performance
For an electric SUV I’d say that 0-60mph in 8 seconds is impressive, however, Range Rover has upped this by getting their new Range from 0 to 60mph in 6.5 seconds and with max speeds of 135mph (top speed of 87mph when in full EV mode). For a vehicle with an impressive maximum towing weight of 3,500kg, it’s set to amaze with its 2022 debut. The new plug-in Hybrid optimises efficiency and performance for all-electric, zero-emissions driving. With the vehicle being able to travel up to 62 miles on EV Range, with only 60 minutes charging time when charging on rapid public chargers. The home charging time is still a minuscule 5 hours on a wall box.
2022 Range Rover Exterior Design
Land Rover wanted the new Range to follow reductionist aesthetics. As a result, a lot of the features are hidden or used via sensor/touchscreen. The towbar is electrically deployed from the car so that it isn’t visible when it’s not needed. This towbar is an advanced tow and hitch assist with its own trailer stability control. Helping to calm the driver’s nerves when towing as it feels and is a lot safer. Another feature that has impressed the reviewer is the ‘wading’ feature. It uses sensors in the door mirrors to let you know when water levels are approaching the vehicle’s maximum depth. Taking the vehicle back to its organic and adventurous roots. Another technological aspect added to this feature is the control system that is able to provide real-time information for greater awareness in low visibility. Showcasing the new high-tech abilities of the premium SUV.
There are also options for a panoramic roof. This bathes the Range Rover in natural light. Perfect for daydreaming out of the window, taking selfies, and playing ‘eye-spy (all of these as a passenger of course).
