Range Rover goes electric

Range Rover, the fuel-hungry SUV that is parked on the pavements of the most exclusive Jo’burg shopping malls, is going green. I can hear the excited rattle of ethical jewellery already. The prototype Liberty electric Range Rover will be unveiled next year, reports the Telegraph. It won’t be cheap, though – probably somewhere between R1.4-million and R1.9-million – but it’ll do about 320km on a single charge and the manufacturer says that it’ll cost 80 percent less to run than a petrol equivalent. It will also have solar panels mounted on the roof that can charge the battery. The Liberty could be on sale next year, the Telegraph reports.
