According to Autocar, Jaguar Land Rover is building yet another crossover, which will be introduced by the end the decade. The new high-riding vehicle isn’t going to be just one more capable off-roader, but the first ever all-electric SUV. They are pretty sure about the name as well. Yes, it’s going to be introduced as the 2020 Road Rover EV.
The all-new nameplate will reportedly have a lot in common with the upcoming XJ. More precisely, the electric crossover will share platform and powertrain with the upcoming EV sedan. Plus, these two will feature pretty much the same footprint.
The 2020 Range Rover Road Rover is supposed to host an impressive dual-motor drivetrain. We don’t know how many ponies will be beneath the hood, but it’s should be able to cross around 300 miles. In addition, the carmaker promises a 0-60 mph sprint under 5 seconds, which is really impressive. The biggest “flow” will be the lack of any kind of off-road characteristics. Yes, Land Rover’s future SUV EV will serve for on-road adventures only.
In case you are wondering how it will look the upcoming electric crossover, well, we still have nothing specific. The vehicle will reportedly be influenced by the new Velar. However, it will feature a shooting brake profile and more aerodynamic than the all-new Velar.
The battery-powered Road Rover SUV will be available in North America of course. The guys from Autocar are pretty sure it’s going to make its official debut at the 2019 Los Angeles auto show. They also suggest that the topping model might cost around £90,000.
