THE fifth generation Range Rover is about to break cover and it is packed with equipment to merit a £94,400 starting price.

Long range plug-in powertrains will feature from launch while a purely electric model will be available from 2024.

They will sit alongside conventional petrol and diesel engines which remain part of the latest Range Rover line up.

Compared to the current model that is an entry point price hike of some £10,000 and that takes the Range Rover into heady territory.

Looking very smooth and refined the new Range Rover will be on the road later next year and will bring more than 50 years of Britain's luxury SUV right up to date.

It will be built at Land Rover's Solihull factory and will be available in standard and long wheelbases with seating configurations for four, five and seven occupants.

High performance SV variants are also slated for production.

Advanced features include LED headlights with a range of 500 metres, all wheel steering for greater manoeuvrability which gives the car a turning circle of under 11 metres and the latest in Land Rover's Terrain Response computerised off-road system.

Inside, the instrumentation is ultra high tech with a 13.1-inch multi-mode driver's instrument panel supplementing a 13.7-inch interactive display screen in the centre of the dash complete with haptic feedback when operated.

More touchscreens are available in the rear where 11.4-inch displays are mounted on the back of the front seatbacks to provide onboard entertainment on the move.

Two plug-in hybrid powertrains are available producing either 440 or 510ps with electric-only range of up to 62 miles and emissions of less than 30g/km.

Recharge time is said to be under an hour from rapid charging point while mild-hybrid systems are fitted to petrol and diesel models.

There is also a new V8 twin turbo engine developing 530ps which gives the Range Rover a 0 to 60 acceleration time of 4.4 seconds and a maximum of 155mph.

Full performance data is still to be released but Land Rover says the PHEV models will be capable of speeds of up to 87mph in electric only mode and the vehicles will have an overall range of around 400 miles.

For the mild-hybrid petrol models official fuel consumption is rated at 29.7mpg with emissions of 215g/km while the diesel versions can manage up to 37.2 to the gallon with a CO2 figure of 198g/km.

Acceleration times for both the petrol and diesel models is around 5. 5 seconds.

Styling cues see a super smart evolution of the current model which gives the new Range Rover sleek lines all round.

Flush external door handles while a new look to the rear sees slim vertical tail lights flanking the split tailgate which now has a sculpted design.

In profile the car looks very swish and smooth, set off by alloy wheels which are now up to 23-inches in size - the largest on any Land Rover.

Since it first appeared back in 1970 the Range Rover has built a global reputation for Land Rover putting the company at the top of the SUV tree.

The new Range Rover has stayed true to its roots as a go-anywhere vehicle but takes luxury and sophistication in a 4x4 to a new dimension.

More details will be released as the launch date nears next year.
