While some prototypes are being put through extremes temperatures as low as -40 degrees, another set would undergo testing in the grueling deserts of the Middle East at 122 degrees Fahrenheit.

The ongoing testing in the Arctic Circle follows a year of component test in extreme sub-zero temperatures as low as –40°C, which focused on the capability of the battery and Electric Drive Unit (EDU).

Land Rover has already promised that the upcoming Range Rover electric SUV will have performance and all-terrain capabilities offered by the flagship Range Rover V8, which arrived back in 2021.

“Range Rover with electric power – means customary Range Rover luxury, refinement and capability plus near-silent fully electric propulsion; with effortlessly smooth and relaxed journeys,” said Thomas Mueller, Executive Director, Product Engineering.

“To ensure we leave no stone uncovered, we are well underway with our physical testing and development programme, all designed at pushing Range Rover Electric to the extremes to ensure its capability remains unparalleled when it reaches you.”

While the waiting list is now opened, the company is yet to announce the pricing for the electric Range Rover, though it is expected to cost more than its lookalike gas-powered version, which starts at $107,900.
