Prices for select variants have come down drastically, with the biggest savings of over Rs 50 lakh on the Range Rover Autobiography LWB with the petrol engine

Range Rover SUVs Assebled in India

  • Range Rover Autobiography (petrol) and Dynamic HSE (diesel), both with long wheelbase, to be assembled in India.

  • Range Rover Sport Dynamic SE (petrol and diesel) local assembly starts.

  • These Range Rover products use the 3-litre turbo-petrol and diesel engines.

  • Prices cut down massively, highest being Rs 56 lakh on the Autobiography Variant. 

  • Deliveries to commence from today for Range Rover, while Range Rover Sport will begin from August 16. 

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR), the parent company of automotive luxury brand Range Rover, has announced local assembly for the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport SUVs in India to meet the increased demand from Indian buyers. JLR primarily manufactures its SUVs in Solihull, UK, but for the first time, production for its flagship offerings will now take place in India, significantly reducing the waiting period for these SUVs. The ‘Made-in-India’ Range Rover SUVs will cater exclusively to domestic demand, while global demand will continue to be fulfilled by the UK plant.

Massive Price Cuts

It is important to note that only certain variants of the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport are being locally assembled in India for now. With this step towards localisation, Indian buyers can enjoy significant savings on these luxury SUVs, as detailed below:

The biggest savings are for buyers of the mid-spec petrol-powered Range Rover LWB, while only the entry-level Range Rover Sport variants get the benefit of localisation.

The localised variants of the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport will be offered with the same 3-litre turbo-petrol and diesel engines, the specifications of which are detailed below:

High Demand From India

During the current financial year, the demand for Range Rover SUVs has skyrocketed by 160 percent, which is one of the main reasons behind this strategic move. Since 2011, JLR has been producing some vehicles in India in collaboration with Tata Motors. Till date, 10 JLR cars have been assembled at the Chakan plant in Pune, which included the likes of the Range Rover Velar and Range Rover Evoque as well. This step will not only make these SUVs more affordable, but also significantly reduce the waiting period as well. 

Range Rover assembled in India

Deliveries of the locally assembled Range Rover will start from today itself, while those for the Range Rover Sport will start from August 16, 2024.

Upcoming SUVs

Currently, Land Rover Range Rover's lineup in India comprises the Range Rover, Range Rover Sport, Range Rover Velar, and Range Rover Evoque. Additionally, Range Rover is in the process of developing a fully electric SUV, set to be unveiled by the end of 2024, with an all-electric Range Rover Sport slated for launch in 2025 and will be manufactured in the UK plant only.
