The Range Rover Sport’s 4.4-litre V8 SV edition will continue to be imported.

Jaguar Land Rover has announced that it will locally assemble the flagship Range Rover and Range Rover Sport SUVs in India, thereby bringing down their prices significantly. The Range Rover 3.0-litre diesel HSE LWB is now priced at Rs 2.36 crore (down by Rs 44 lakh) and the Range Rover Sport 3.0-litre diesel Dynamic SE is now priced at Rs 1.40 crore (down by Rs 29 lakh); all prices ex-showroom, India.

Jaguar Land Rover local assembly operations

India is the first country outside of the UK to locally produce the two SUVs, and it joins the Velar, Evoque, Jaguar F-Pace and the Discovery Sport that are already locally assembled at JLR’s facility in Pune. Apart from a massive reduction in price, local assembly will also help bring down the waiting period on these SUVs.

Surprisingly, the Defender, which was JLR’s bestselling model in FY2024 with 1,314 units – nearly three times the Range Rover – continues to be a full import. JLR began local assembly in 2011 through a contract manufacturing agreement with Tata Motors; the Freelander was the first locally produced product.

Locally assembled Range Rover details

The Range Rover has been an absolute favourite among Bollywood stars, sports stars and the rich in general, selling 394 units in FY2024 – significant for an SUV that ranges between Rs 2 crore and 4.46 crore in import guise. Most Range Rovers in India are the higher-spec LWB variant.

Land Rover hasn’t revealed the detailed price list of the locally assembled Range Rover yet, but it has stated that the 3.0-litre diesel HSE LWB variant is priced at Rs 2.36 crore while the 3.0-litre petrol Autobiography LWB is priced at Rs 2.60 crore – a whopping reduction of Rs 44 lakh and Rs 56 lakh, respectively. That’s also a lot more affordable than the recently launched Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 that’s priced at Rs 3.35 crore. The short wheelbase (SWB) versions will continue to be a full import, though, as will the 4.4-litre V8-engined variants.

The locally assembled Range Rover will be offered with two engine options – the 3.0-litre six-cylinder petrol producing 392hp and 550Nm, and the 3.0-litre six-cylinder diesel producing 345hp and 700Nm. Deliveries for the locally assembled Range Rover start today.

Range Rover and Range Rover Sport now start at Rs 2.60 crore and Rs 1.40 crore, respectively.

Locally assembled Range Rover Sport details

The Range Rover Sport sold 404 units in FY2024, with import versions costing between Rs 1.69 crore and 2.80 crore. Meanwhile, the locally assembled Range Rover Sport starts at Rs 1.40 crore for both the petrol and diesel 3.0-litre Dynamic SE variants, bringing down the price by Rs 29 lakh for both; a detailed price list for the locally assembled model is awaited.

The locally assembled Range Rover Sport will also be offered with the same 392hp, 3.0-litre petrol and 345hp, 3.0-litre diesel engines; the 4.4-litre V8 SV Edition will continue to be an import. Deliveries for the locally assembled Sport will commence on August 16, 2024.

JLR has also announced the opening of ‘Range Rover House’ in Alibaug that’s curated to offer an exclusive and modern luxury experience to the brand’s discerning clientele. The facility will also have some of the first locally produced Range Rover and Range Rover Sport SUVs on display.
