17 May 2023, United Arab Emirates, Dubai: Range Rover is setting a new modern luxury benchmark with the introduction of an SV Bespoke commissioning service, offering clients enhanced levels of personalisation and refinement.
The service is available on Autobiography and SV models, while a suite of enhancements across the line-up maintains Range Rover’s status as the world’s most desirable luxury SUV. Range Rover is the original luxury SUV and has led by example for more than 50 years, combining serene comfort and composure with all-conquering capability.
Further updates to Range Rover include the latest generation Pivi Pro1 infotainment, while the new plug-in electric hybrids are more powerful than before. Range Rover SV is also available with electric hybrid power on the long wheelbase model for the first time, while the flagship V8 features efficiency-boosting mild hybrid technology. A new 615PS variant is introduced on the exclusive Range Rover SV for ultimate power.
Geraldine Ingham, Managing Director, Range Rover, said: “Range Rover is synonymous with exclusivity and luxury. Now, with the new SV Bespoke commissioning service, we invite our most discerning clients to become the creator of their truly unique vehicle – choosing the finishes they desire and being guided by our Design team. By blending enhanced personalisation with peerless refinement and unmatched capability, Range Rover continues to deliver the ultimate in modern luxury.”
The SV Bespoke commissioning service represents the pinnacle of personalisation and is available on Range Rover Autobiography and Range Rover SV. To achieve their perfect specification, clients can curate their Range Rover at the SV Bespoke Commissioning Suite in the UK, visit selected global retailers or for the ultimate convenience, complete their order online through an exclusive virtual service.
SV Bespoke provides access to a vast range of materials, and interior and exterior finishes. Clients follow a unique and comprehensive seven-step creation process that considers colours, themes, SV exclusive options, materials, veneers and finishers, customisations and personalisation. Each finished vehicle promises to be as unique as its creator, although curated design combinations chosen by the Range Rover Design team are available to help clients make their dreams a reality.
Inside, there are up to 391 material colourways available, while the curated SV Bespoke paint palette comprises more than 230 colours in satin and gloss finishes. Alternatively, the SV Bespoke Match to Sample paint service can replicate any exterior colour request, providing limitless scope for individuality.
The level of craftsmanship available from the experts at SV Bespoke is exemplified by the attention to detail lavished on the Range Rover bonnet and tailgate script, which is available in a range of precious metal finishes including 24ct gold.
Range Rover’s extensive powertrain line-up has also been enhanced. The powerful and efficient plug-in electric hybrid engines feature a new 160kW electric motor which, when combined with the 3.0-litre six-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine, produces 550PS and 460PS in the P550e and P460e respectively – up from 510PS and 440PS.
The enhanced technology provides improved acceleration in EV mode, reducing the time it takes to reach 100km/h in pure-electric power by 5.0 seconds. Using both power sources, the P550e can sprint from 0-100km/h in 5.0 seconds, compared to 5.5 seconds previously (or 0-60mph in 4.8 seconds, down from 5.2 seconds).
They are available alongside existing six-cylinder mild hybrid petrol and diesel Ingenium engines, and provide CO2 emissions of 16g/km with a pure-electric driving range of up to 121km (75 miles) – up from 113km (70 miles) – delivering an expected real-world range of up to 94km (59 miles)2.
Electric hybrid power is now available on the long wheelbase Range Rover SV for the first time. Clients have the option to specify the four-seat long wheelbase body design, coupled with the SV Signature Suite option and efficient electric hybrid power, representing the pinnacle of Range Rover luxury.
The effortless V8 uses Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) technology for the first time. The MHEV system delivers increased efficiency by harvesting energy captured when decelerating and braking, and improved responses as the stored energy is redeployed under acceleration. When combined with other benefits of the system, including smoother operation of the start/stop functionality, these attributes deliver an improvement in CO2 emissions.
A twin turbo V8 MHEV petrol engine is also introduced on Range Rover SV, featuring an enhanced power output of 615PS and 750Nm of torque, delivering smooth and powerful performance.
Range Rover’s luxurious interior combines effortless connectivity and intuitive technology like never before with the latest generation Pivi Pro1 infotainment. It provides a crisp and intuitive interface, enabling clients to control key vehicle functions via the elegant 13.1-inch floating glass touchscreen4.
New sidebars with easy-to-use sliding controls for the volume and climate control provide immediate and precise operation for key functions directly, whatever menu screen is displayed, and approximately 80 per cent of tasks can be performed within two taps of the home screen. Haptic feedback provides an added level of tactility and communication with the user.
Integrated Amazon Alexa voice AI4 and Land Rover voice control systems help drivers to keep their eyes on the road while making changes to the cabin environment. Advanced Software Over The Air capability ensures Range Rover is always up to date with the latest software, enabling the vehicle and its features to improve with age.
New Country Road Assist technology features for the first time on Range Rover to enhance passenger comfort and reduce driver effort when using Adaptive Cruise Control. The intelligent system uses navigation data to automatically adjust the target speed, taking into account bends in the road and changes to the speed limit, effortlessly accelerating or decelerating the vehicle accordingly.
Following its debut in the Range Rover Sport, Dynamic Response Pro3 takes driving composure to new heights. The powerful electric roll control technology reduces body lean when cornering for a more relaxing and engaging drive, using actuators capable of delivering up to 1,400Nm of torque to each axle.
Range Rover’s unmatched all-terrain capability is also enhanced with the introduction of Adaptive Off-Road Cruise Control. A feature of the advanced Terrain Response 2® system, it helps drivers navigate tricky terrain by maintaining steady progress according to the ground conditions. Drivers can select one of four comfort settings and the system intelligently adjusts the vehicle’s speed accordingly, allowing the driver to focus solely on steering a path across tricky terrain.
The enhanced Range Rover line-up is available now priced from £103,575 (OTR) in the UK. Configure yours here – https://www.landrover.com/vehicles/new-range-rover/index.html
