NEW HYBRID ‘STATE REVIEW’ RANGE ROVER

hybrid-range-rover

A new, hybrid-powered State Review vehicle was used for the first time today, when Her Majesty The Queen presented New Colours to the Royal Welsh Regiment  in Cardiff.  The Queen is Colonel-in-Chief of the Regiment.

Based on a long wheelbase Range Rover, the new vehicle features a diesel hybrid engine, which enables it to run at times purely on electric power.  The State Review was designed by Land Rover Design and engineered by Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations department.

This is the fourth State Review vehicle which Land Rover has provided, starting with a 1953 Land Rover Series 1.  The new hybrid replaces the previous Range Rover State Review vehicle, which dates from 2002.

Jaguar Land Rover is the only automotive company to hold all three Royal Warrants, from HM The Queen, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh and HRH The Prince of Wales.  The company also recently received a 2015 Queen's Award for Enterprise in Sustainable Development, for reducing the environmental impact of its products and its operations.
