Next-generation Range Rover Mule Spotted In Sweden

Our man with the long lense has captured the next-generation Range Rover mule winter testing in Sweden. Next-generation Range Rover is expected to loose about 400kg thanks to new aluminium chassis, alloy body shell and composite materials.

The new Range Rover is expected to be longer, wider and lower than the current generation model. The new Range Rover will be also launched as a hybrid in 2013 in addition to new more fuel efficient TDV6, TDV8 and 5.0-litre V8 petrol units. For better fuel economy new Range Rover will also feature a new ZF eight-speed automatic transmission.

A plug-in hybrid is also planned, that should arrive in 2-3 years after the launch. In EV mode this big SUV will have a range of about 20 miles and a top speed of 70mph.

We expect to see first prototypes with the new design in mid-2011. World debut is very likely at the 2012 Paris Motor Show.

  • Interesting to see what the pricing stategy for it will be. Autocar reported Bentley levels of luxury and a 100k price tag.

    If they get the styling to look as good as the Evoque then the demand will be huge for it.

    Amazin how a car based on such a relatively old platform is still so highly regardeed

  • Andrew Baker

    Agree. it still is an amazing car despite the old platform < meaning it is far from being comfortable compared to other big SUVs.

    I hope we get to see new prototypes soon with the new body. the plan is to try to photoshop the final product then:)
