Technical Director of Jaguar 2018-2019 Land Rover Wolfgang Tsiebart said in an interview with Autocar, that ‘hybrid installation will become dominant in the premium segment of the company [Range Rover]’.
This obviously means that in the distant future we will see a new ‘green’ modifications of British off-road, especially in markets with strict environmental standards and demanding fuel efficiency.
Tsiebart also noted that they are closely watching the crossover Tesla Model X.
‘We can not ignore any segment. If any niche stronger and shows growth – we are obliged to respond. ”
‘However, the decision to establish an electrified model pending’ – said Wolfgang.
In other words – if the Model X will be successful, 2018-2019 Land Rover will make to the question of creating not only a hybrid off-road vehicle, but also all-electric SUV..
