Saw (and heard) an electric Range Rover today - complete with swirly disguise vinyl wrap. Guessing it’s a hybrid, this far from base?

Theres an RnD centre at Burford (or might be Barford - they’ve got a few), so not that far? Current development phase is underway of plug-in variants which should be able to do >50 miles on pure electric as well as mixed at a guess?

Burford would be right on the limit (25 miles) - I’ll confirm tomorrow but I don’t think it came from that direction (it was parked at the burger wagon where I stopped :D ) but they may have just dropped down Crickley hill and come back up?

My old boss part exed his old unreliable 4 year old Range Rover for a new autobiography hybrid RR . Broke down after 17 miles from new . Screens went blank and stopped , restarted and went into limp home mode . Dealer picked it up and guess what they can’t find a fault with it . And it still sits 6 weeks later at dealer as he has rejected it . He is taking them all to court for his money back and compensation . Nobody messes with my old boss

That reminds me, I saw one of those electric Range Rovers on the M6 on my way "oop Norf" at Christmas (parked at Stafford services) :D

nothing as nice as that, only an old SAAB 96, but looked tidy, on original two stroke judging by smell/colour of exhaust
