Concept_e BEV

Jaguar-Land Rover is currently working on several electrified concept vehicles.  Among those vehicles is the Range Rover Evoque-E, a pure electric SUV.

“Concept_e BEV is a bespoke research demonstrator based on Jaguar Land Rover’s aluminium vehicle architecture. The underbody has been modified to mount the 70 kWh HV lithium ion traction battery and electric axle drive (EAD) units. The front drive unit features a single speed transmission coupled with an 85 kW electric motor. The rear drive unit features a twin speed transmission coupled with a 145 kW electric motor.”

We now have some additional information on this electric concept SUV.

Williams Advanced Engineering, the sole supplier of the battery packs for the FIA Formula E Championship, is the maker of the 70 kWh pack for the Concept_e BEV, which is otherwise known as the Range Rover Evoque-e.

Green Car Congress adds:

"For this project, Williams’ scope of this project was to manage material logistics and build and test one pack for the Evoque_E vehicle. Williams Advanced Engineering has subsequently created detail processes for the future productionization of this technology, including detailed work instructions to ensure overall quality and consistency of a build and the ability for future products to be cell-agnostic."

We do believe that the Range Rover Evoque-e will be headed for production, though this has not been confirmed at this point in time.
