Land Rover Monthly - - Upfront -

HM THE Queen has tried out the latest State Re­view Land Rover. The hy­brid-pow­ered Range Rover was used for the first time when she pre­sented New Colours to the Royal Welsh Reg­i­ment in Cardiff. The Queen is Colonel-in-chief of the Reg­i­ment.

Based on a long wheel­base Range Rover, the new ve­hi­cle fea­tures a diesel hy­brid en­gine, which en­ables it to run on elec­tric power. It was de­signed by Land Rover De­sign and en­gi­neered by Jaguar Land Rover’s Spe­cial Ve­hi­cle Oper­a­tions depart­ment.

This is the fourth State Re­view ve­hi­cle which Land Rover has pro­vided, start­ing with a 1953 Se­ries I. The new hy­brid re­places the pre­vi­ous Range Rover State Re­view car, which dates from 2002.
