Range Rover Local Assembly In Malaysia Confirmed

Yes, you are reading this right. Range Rover will soon be local assembled in Malaysia which means, prices will come down and you might also be able to buy the Range Rover Sport plug-in hybrid (PHEV). It will deliver sustainable performance and efficiency with the introduction of plug-in petrol-electric power.

This highly capable and dynamic performance SUV features Jaguar Land Rover’s first PHEV powertrain and is capable of making trips of up to 51km with zero tailpipe emissions when driven in all-electric mode.

Here are 8 reasons why you should wait and buy this Range Rover before looking elsewhere.

  • This luxury SUV will be powered by an advanced 13.1kWh lithium-ion battery giving a total available power output of 404bhp.
  • Fully charged, this Range Rover can be driven up to a distance of 51km with zero-emissions. This means driving to work for some without using petrol.
  • There will be no reduction in absolute luxury. New Ebony Vintage Tan and Ebony Eclipse colourways will be available in the luxurious cabin. Semi-Aniline Leather, previously only available in the Range Rover will offer additional luxury with its outstanding quality and stain-resistant finish.
  • This SUV will come with a new cabin air ionisation system, Nanoe™, which is central to the increased focus on passenger well-being. It will improve the air quality within the cabin and can help reduce allergens, viruses, bacteria and odours.
  • Land Rover’s innovative Activity Key wristband is available on Range Rover Sport for the first time, allowing customers to lock and unlock the vehicle without using the standard fob. Perfect for runners, swimmers or cyclists who don’t want to carry a traditional key while exercising, the durable Activity Key is fully waterproof to depths of 18m and designed to withstand temperatures ranging from -50 to +125 degrees.
  • British audio experts Meridian will deliver true three-dimensional sound quality.
  • Off-road handling and performance is still managed via a series of Terrain Response 2 features. So no reduction in its off-road abilities.
  • It will continue to deliver the performance of a 6-cylinder JLR powerplant in a more compact package with reduced weight and optimised CO2 emissions.

Now that you have the above facts, all you need to do is be patient for its launch in Malaysia.
