New Range Rover and its starting price revealed in South Africa

The highly-anticipated fifth generation of the Land Rover Range Rover was unveiled at a glitzy event in Johannesburg on Wednesday, but South African buyers will have to wait a little bit longer to get their hands on one.

The new Range Rover is only expected to be available locally from the middle of 2022, albeit no official date has been set. What Jaguar Land Rover did confirm, is the local line-up which will consist of 19 models, and that the range will start at a price of R2.86-million.

The new Range Rover will be available in HSE, Autobiography and FIrst Edition trim, with the latter that will only be available in the first year of production. Customers will also have a choice of four, five or seven-seat configurations along with standard or long wheelbase body options.

Powertrain options include six-cylinder, eight-cylinder and new Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) offerings. An all-electric model is set to join the range in 2024.
