These technologies and changes have now also been introduced to another JLR Model, known as the Sports big brother and the start of it all, the Range Rover. The Range Rover has been around for 50 years and over time has developed into a class-leading luxury vehicle. It showcases its poise and class. Quite simply, the Range Rover is most luxurious Land Rover available.
With the 2018 model, the Range Rover takes another step further in automotive luxury. Thanks to newly designed seat frames, the front seats now feature 24-way movement with enhanced comfort due to the use of wider and deeper foam, and the introduction of heated armrests. Of course, this comfort follows through to the rear seating area. Wider, softer seats which recline by 40 degrees are complemented by 1206 mm of legroom, and this is an increase of 186mm over the previous model. To complete the perfect tranquil sanctuary, the rear seats can be heated or cooled, along with heating options for the arm, foot and calf rests. Further, all seat functionality can be controlled easily via a mobile app. Those cold South African mornings suddenly don’t seem so cold!
Whether you are working while being driven or driving down to Cape Town for a family holiday, the new Range Rover has you covered in the digital age. With over 17 connection points including USB, Domestic Plug Sockets, HDMI and 12-volt power, none of the vehicle occupants will never be without power or disconnected from the outside world thanks to a 4G WI-FI hotspot which connects to 8 Devices simultaneously.
Drivers of the Range Rover P400e will have two driving modes at their disposal. The first is a Parallel Hybrid mode for balancing fuel economy and battery level. The second mode, called EV mode, is for pure electric and emission-free driving for up to 51km – perfect for dropping the kids off at school or the bumper to bumper traffic on the way to the office.
Charging time can be done overnight with the standard supplied charger, which takes 7 hours 30 minutes to reach a full charge. If you prefer a quicker charge, the Rapid Charging system will complete the process in 2 hours 45 minutes – Impressive!
