Range Rover goes electric

Range Rovers are normally referred to as a gas-guzzling “Chelsea Tractor”, but all that might be about to change.

UK firm, Liberty Electric, is planning to turn thousands of luxury cars electric and is starting with the Range Rover to prove it can be done.

Although details are scarce at the moment, the company has produced an electric motor powered Range Rover.

The Liberty Range Rover will power its way through 200 miles before needing a charge, and some models will carry on-board range extending generators.

However before you reach for your “Green” cheque book, be prepared to pay for the chance to go eco friendly.

Prices touted at the moment for the car that won’t have a petrol or diesel backup engine at £90,000-125,000.
