-Range Rover EV Could Run On Hydrogen
A battery powered model also remains in the cards. The new land rover range rover made its debut yesterday with an evolutionary design, powerful engines and comfort to spare. The super luxury suv will be launched in the united states with just two power trains: a 3.0 liter inline, six mild, hybrid and a 4.4 liter bmw sourced v8, and a plug in hybrid powertrain will join the range in 2023. about a year later. Land rover will also introduce the first ever electric range rover, and it could be hiding a little secret. Land. Rovers flagship model is based on the new mla platform, which allows for different sorts of electrification. In a recent interview with otto carr land rover program, director nick miller, confirmed the architecture can also accommodate a hydrogen power train, hinting at a potential new ev derivative in the range rover. Lineup little is known about the project so far, but miller admitted to the british publication. Hydrogen will be complementary to battery electric power trains as land rover wants to go carbon neutral by 2036 land rover is no stranger to fuel cell technology and is already testing a hydrogen system integrated into a defender prototype a drivable hydrogen powered concept should be revealed relatively Soon, as a preview of the potential of that technology, that doesnt mean there wont be a battery powered range rover, though, as autocar also reports about a new development partnership between land, rover and bmw, it will be focused on the joint development of new electric drive systems With the publication claiming it is almost certain that the range rover ev will feature at least two electric motors and an output that is comparable to the most potent combustion powered variants.
For now, the most powerful electrified new range rover is the p500 any available in europe which combines a 3.0 liter inline six engine, a 38.2 kwh lithium ion battery and 141 hp 105 kw electric motor integrated into the transmission. The combined output of the f powertrain is 510 hp, 375 kw enough for a zero to 62 miles per hour, zero to 100 kilometers per hour sprint in 5.6 seconds Music in the united states.
