RUMORED: Electric Range Rover to Compete with Tesla Model X

To successfully challenge Tesla's Model X, Jaguar Land Rover will have to offer a car with at least 250 miles range, quick recharging, and even 'free fuel.'

Published: 01-Nov-2014

Range Rover — Jaguar Land Rover’s luxury SUV range — is traditionally associated with high-paid sports stars, A-list celebrities and go-anywhere opulence. In almost every case, those associations and preconceptions come with a large, powerful, gas-guzzling V-6 or V-8.

Now it appears that Jaguar Land Rover might be about to change Range Rover’s gas-guzzling reputation with the rumor that it is considering the possibility of producing an all-electric Range-Rover model to cross-shop against Tesla’s Model S and Model X in the luxury car marketplace.

That’s according to AutoCar, who claims that Jaguar Land Rover group engineering director Wolfgang Ziebart hinted recently that the British-based firm was seriously considering a plug-in vehicle for the Chinese and U.S. markets.
