Land Rover has been spotted testing a prototype for a redesigned Range Rover.
The new mid-size luxury SUV is expected to debut alongside a redesigned version of the stretched Range Rover Long Wheelbase late next year, which means we'll likely see it arrive as a 2022 model. A new Range Rover Sport should also be coming, likely one year after the Range Rover.
Land Rover only last year introduced an updated Range Rover that offered a new inline-6 engine and mild-hybrid system as the base power train. But the current generation dates back to 2013 so it makes sense the redesigned, fourth-generation model is coming up soon.
Compared to the current Range Rover, Land Rover's design team looks to have implemented a slightly less boxier shape for the redesigned model's cabin. The wheel arches also appear to be a bit more pronounced. Finer details, like the accents in the lights.
Land Rover is working on a Redesing for new Range Rover.
Release date for Redesign 2022 Range Rover
The regular as well as long-wheelbase versions of the redesigned, fourth-generation Range Rover are expected on sale in late 2021 as 2022 models. A new Range Rover Sport should also be coming, likely one year after the regular Range Rover.
Underpinning the vehicle will be Land Rover's new MLA (Modular Longitudinal Architecture) platform that debuts this year in a Jaguar XJ. It was previously thought the platform would debut in the redesigned Defender but Land Rover went with an evolution of the D7 platform instead for the off-roader. The D7 platform underpins the outgoing Range Rover and Range Rover Sport, as well as the Discovery.
The MLA platform has been designed to fit battery-electric powertrains and will eventually underpin most models from the Jaguar and Land Rover brands. The platform will also be lighter than the aluminum-intensive D7 platform.
2022 Range Rover Engine
Regarding engine, expect the that 2022 Range Rover Redesign to feature the inline 6 engine and mild-hybrid system. The setup is good for 355 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque in base P360 guise and 395 hp and 406 lb-ft in sportier P400 guise.
Above this should be a new plug-in hybrid setup featuring the inline-6 engine mated to an electric motor at the front axle and a second electric motor powering the rear axle. The current Range Rover plug-in hybrid only has a single-electric motor setup. A battery-electric engine will also be offered in the new Range Rover at some point.
It isn't clear if a V-8 will be offered with the redesigned Range Rover, though a deal with BMW Group could potentially make it happen. Jaguar Land Rover and BMW Group are already poised to share some engines and electric engine, and hopefully a V-8 is on the cards.
Production will be handled at Land Rover's plant in Solihull, United Kingdom, where the current generation is built.
After plugging into the electric-car market Porsche isn't anywhere close to being done with its EV offensive in the coming years. According information which we have the new 2022 Porsche Macan will be pure-electric, and thanks to a new report, we now have a clearer idea of when we'll see the Macan EV hit the road. The exception will be some small operation with Rimac.
2022 Porsche Macan Release date
Release date for new 2022 Macan should be at the end of next year. Considering situation with Coronavirus all over the world, this promotion can be postponed.
Competitors of new 2022 Macan
When we look what competitors do on this field, we see the similar action from Ford with the Mustang Mach-E. From the other side, big competitor in this segment is Tesla Cybertruck and new GMC Hummer.
2022 Porsche Macan Engine (Battery)
Porsche executives that point to as much as 700 horsepower (525 kilowatts) in a Turbo S variant. Obviously it won’t actually have a turbocharger – like the Taycan it will follow Porsche’s familiar naming structure for trim levels. That means there will be a standard Turbo and other submodels to spruce up the Macan EV lineup.
Porsche had confirmed the Macan will sit on this so-called Premium Platform Electric (PPE). We don't know much else about the upcoming electric Macan, except that it will feature 800-volt charging technology. Also, he will be produced at the same Leipzig factory that makes the current, fossil-fuel-powered versions of the small crossover.
The Macan has become the company’s best-selling vehicle in a relatively short amount of time. Nixing internal-combustion power completely is something Porsche buyers might not be ready for, but with the speed at which the auto industry is currently evolving, things could be very different come 2024.
