The vehicle, which will be imported as a completely built-up unit, will be available in two variants—a 4.4-litre TD V8 diesel that will cost Rs 1.72 crore, and a 5-litre V8 supercharged petrol that will cost Rs 1.8 crore.
The petrol engine produces 503 bhp of power and a maximum torque of 625Nm, while the diesel engine churns out 335 bhp at 700Nm of torque.
For the first time, the Range Rover uses an all-aluminium monocoque frame which reduces weight by 420 kg. It is 27 mm longer than its predecessor, and yet stays overall shorter than rivals like the Audi Q7 or Mercedes-Benz GL.
A monocoque body supports the vehicle’s structural load, without just enveloping the structure, thus reducing the load of the internal frame that bears most of the weight.
The Range Rover was first unveiled in London in September, and the market launch happened in Paris later the same month.
The fourth-generation Range Rover is among the last vehicles launched by the Tata group before chairman Ratan Tata steps down in December.
