Land Rover introduced the fourth generation Range Rover at the 2012 Paris Motor Show and it became a success overnight. The new Range Rover is a perfect blend of luxury, practicality and class. The 2013 Range Rover went on sale from December 2012 in the U.S.A. and with an overwhelming response from customers, the dealerships are now sold out of the new beast with a waiting period of 6 to 12 months. According to the company, the demand for the new Range Rover is tight from all over the world and not only the States.
With limited number of supplies, Land Rover has decided not to bring the base model costing $83,545 (Rs. 44.87 lakhs) for the North American market for the time being and instead start from the $88,545 (Rs. 47.56 lakhs) HSE model to higher trims including Supercharged and Autobiography variants. This move was taken keeping in mind the buying patterns of the customers. Most of the buyers skipped the base model of the previous generation model and opted for higher trims offering more features. Despite limited supplies, Land Rover expects a significant increase of units in the sales chart over the last year.
