The new generation of Range Rover Sport has just been introduced, more luxurious and more refined than ever. The new generation impresses with its design and level of refinement, while we also like its capable powertrain options. However, that’s not all, the new thing will be coming in the next year, particularly in terms of electrification. The company already introduced the plug-in hybrid and now it’s time for the 2024 Range Rover Sport Electric, which will feature an all-electric powertrain. This model is scheduled for the next year.
From what we know so far, the company is preparing an all-electric setup, which will be installed in the current model. Simply, the new platform supports full electrification, so we count on respectable performance and range. This also means that the overall design is about to remain the same, though there is always room for minor tweaks, which would accentuate the model’s off-road character.
As we’ve just mentioned, the 2024 Range Rover Sport Electric should arrive sometime in the next year.
2024 Range Rover Sport Electric Specs
Of course, the most interesting part of the 2024 Range Rover Sport Electric will be its powertrain. The new generation has just been introduced, with inline-six and V8 engines, as well as a plug-in hybrid setup. Now, it’s time for full electrification, and that model is expected to arrive in the next year.
At this point, the officials are still quiet about the specs. However, we can hear reports about a battery pack of 85-105kWh capacity, which should provide respectable autonomy of around 300 miles. We also expect to see advanced battery technology, with respectable charging speeds.
On the other hand, details about power figures are still unavailable. At this point, we only know that the 2024 Range Rover Sport Electric will feature a dual-motor setup, but the exact numbers are still unavailable.
2024 Range Rover Sport Electric Design
As we’ve just mentioned, the all-electric version will be based on the standard model. Simply, the new generation is based on the company’s new MLA Flex platform, which is highly modular and flexible and can accommodate powertrains of different kinds, including all-electric setups. Therefore, the 2024 Range Rover Sport Electric will feature the same overall design as the gasoline versions. We are about to see the same chassis and suspension setup, which means pretty similar ride quality as well.
The same thing goes for aesthetics, where we expect the same new design language to be applied. We count on the same exterior design, which has brought subtle but effective changes compared to the previous generation. The Ranger Rover Sport looks conventional and futuristic at the same time, aggressive and elegant. That may be one of its strongest points.
We don’t expect bigger surprises in this aspect either. Therefore, there should be the same dashboard design, which looks very elegant, thanks to clean lines, which come in a combination with nicely designed tech features, such as a floating, tablet-like infotainment screen, elegant center console and a large instrument cluster. Of course, the all-electric Ranger Rover Sport would come with a little bit different cluster, adapted to the all-electric powertrain.
Considering that the battery will be placed under the floor, the passenger space shouldn’t be compromised. Therefore, we count on two spacious and comfortable rows of seats, as well as a pretty decent cargo area. The cargo area should offer around 32 cubic feet behind the second row and 53 cubic feet of the total cargo volume.
At this point, it’s hard to say whether the 2024 Range Rover Sport Electric will be a high-end version with a full load of standard equipment, or we might see it in a more basic variant as well. In any case, it will be very luxurious.
For reference, the gasoline model comes standard with goodies like a 13.1-inch touch screen, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, navigation, a 15-speaker Meridian audio system, satellite radio, HD Radio, Bluetooth, USB ports, wireless device charging, a Wi-Fi hot spot, a 13.7-inch digital instrument cluster and dual-zone automatic climate control.
Among upgrades, you can find goodies like Amazon Alexa, a Meridian 3D surround-sound stereo system, a panoramic sunroof, quad-zone automatic climate control and a refrigerated center console.
Also, there is a generous offer of standard safety features, which include lane-keep assist, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, parking sensors, surround-view camera, traffic sign recognition, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert.
2024 Range Rover Sport Electric Release Date and Price
We expect that the 2024 Range Rover Sport Electric will come sometime in 2024, with a starting price of over 100.000 dollars. Some of the key competitors should be models like Tesla Model X, Nio ES8 and, of course, the GMC Hummer EV SUV, which would be one of the key rivals in terms of off-road performance.
