Range Stormer is a high performance, sports tourer SUV concept car, which showcases a future design direction for Land Rover and the company's increasingly bold approach to new technologies. It is also the first-ever Land Rover concept to preview a new production model, one that will enter a fresh market segment for the company. This will be an additional model line in the Land Rover portfolio.

Future technologies previewed with the concept include an all-new platform that will be the basis for future full-size Land Rover models. This advanced, fully integrated platform, unique to Land Rover, will provide the underpinnings for the production vehicle inspired by Range Stormer.

Another major innovation is Terrain Response. This smart and simple-to-use new Land Rover technology delivers the best possible on-road and off-road composure and control, by optimising the entire vehicle set-up including suspension, powertrain, throttle response and traction control. The driver simply selects the appropriate Terrain Response setting from the six available on Range Stormer, varying from "dynamic" for high speed work to "deep ruts" for extreme off-roading.

The Range Stormer concept car is the sportiest looking vehicle ever to wear a Land Rover badge. The pillars are slim to aid visibility - another typical Land Rover quality - and the roof is glass, giving a light and airy feel to the cabin. Less traditional Land Rover cues include the low roofline, power bulge in the hood and the huge 22-inch forged alloy wheels. The design is peppered with interesting and practical ideas. The doors are a two-piece type: the upper half hinging up and forwards, while the lower half drops to provide a step to the cabin. The doors are electrically powered.

The two-piece tailgate is electric, the upper half lifting and the lower dropping behind the bumper to give optimised access into the loadspace. Floor compartments rise and lower electrically for improved additional stowage. Fitted leather "his and her" bags are also neatly incorporated into the side walls.' The concept car is designed to preview Land Rover's new integrated platform, which will not only form the basis of the Range Stormer-based production vehicle, but a future generation of full-size Land Rover models. It combines the torsional rigidity and strength of a monocoque with the advantages and versatility of a body-on-frame chassis.

The suspension is by height-adjustable air springs, and is fully independent - for a comfortable ride and responsive handling, plus unmatched off-road versatility. The height adjustment not only improves on- and off-road handling, but also helps entry and exit.
