Recently, Jaguar Land Rover grabbed a lot of eyeballs by making the announcement about the locally produced flagship Range Rover and Range Rover Sport models at its Pune factory in India. This decision by the British luxury marque has brought down the pricing of both these SUVs by nearly 20 percent in the Indian market. The made-in-India Range Rover and Range Rover Sport would now be retailed at INR 2.36 Crore and INR 1.40 Crore, respectively, in the domestic market. India is the only country in the world after the UK to start series production of Range Rover and Range Rover Sport.

JLR has also opened the Range Rover House for the first time in India. Located in an exclusive luxury setting in Alibaug, on the Konkan Coast, the Range Rover House will display the Made-in-India Range Rovers, which will be exclusive to Indian buyers. The local production of both these models would also ensure shorter waiting periods thereby delighting the clientele of the brand. JLR India currently manufactures Range Rover Velar, Range Rover Evoque, Jaguar F-PACE and Discovery Sport at its Pune facility in Maharashtra.

Made-in-India Range Rover

The locally manufactured Range Rover will be offered in Autobiography LWB derivative in petrol fuel trim with a 3.0L petrol engine which will generate top power of 393 bhp and peak torque of 550 Nm. As for the diesel HSE LWB variant, it will also be powered by a 3.0L 6-cylinder mill, resulting in max power of 346 bhp and highest torque of 700 Nm. The petrol model will cost INR 2.60 Crore (ex- showroom) while the diesel version will set you back by INR 2.36 Crore (ex-showroom). The deliveries are scheduled to commence shortly for the Made-in-India SUV.

It also has the best-in-segment water wading capacity of 900mm. Despite being gigantic in size, the Range Rover has a turning circle of less than 11m due to the electrically operated rear axle. The SUV also boasts of fully independent air suspension for utmost comfort of the occupants.
