Will there be a Road Rover in 2020?

Will there be a Road Rover in 2020?

-    JLR might introduce ‘car-like’ brand called the Road Rover.

-    An electric power plant is also on the cards.

 -    The Road Rover is speculated to arrive by the end of this decade.

Jaguar Land Rover might have just introduced the new and updated Range Rover and Range Rover Sport in India, but the British carmaker is all ready to revamp its line-up globally. The new-generation is already in the works and is expected to be revealed in 2021. The Evoque will enter into a new generation next year. Between these two new introductions, JLR might introduce a new brand – Road Rover – with a more car-like portfolio.

JLR doesn’t hesitate to experiment with new models in its line-up, which is evident in the introduction of the Evoque back in 2011 and the more recent Velar this year. The new Road Rover has been under consideration for a year now. Since Land Rover has always built true blue SUVs, the Road Rover brand might introduce a crossover with a much higher road bias. According to rumours, the first model would be a full-length luxury wagon. It might be based on the same platform as the next-gen XJ and would be a rival to the S-Class All-terrain wagon if Mercedes ever build one. The estate may have a rugged appeal with body-claddings and a higher ground clearance.

According to earlier reports, the next-gen XJ will go fully electric. So its sister car, bearing the Road Rover badging, could also adopt the same electric powerplant. Besides, JLR has demonstrated expertise in electric vehicles with its all-electric I-Pace. The design and features of the Road Rover vehicle are likely to be similar to the Velar. 

The news of the Road Rover is still in its early stages and no concrete data is available at the moment. We’ll have to wait for the official word from the British marque for further information. Keep watching this space.
