These will include SVO models like the RR Sport SVR, SVAutobiography, F-Type SVR and SV Coupe.

The company will look at launching at least 10 models in 2018-19 (April-March). While they haven’t released a concrete plan as yet, sources say the four models will be from JLR's SVO (Special Vehicle Operations) division. The refreshed Range Rover Sport SVR and the updated Range Rover SVAutobiography will be the first to make it here, sometime around (April-June) of 2018-19.

The company will then launch the F-Type SVR in the second quarter (July-Sep) of 2018-19, followed by the recently unveiled new Range Rover SV Coupe in the third quarter (October-December) of 2018-19. Mark Stanton, director, SVO division, said, apart from offering high levels of performance, the SVO models keep everyday usage in mind as well and aren’t just built for a race track.

Apart from these, facelifts of the standard Range Rover and Range Rover Sport will also make their way here and the latest plug-in hybrid in the line-up, the Range Rover PHEV, may or may not make it here, depending on the government’s policy. Currently, hybrids are heavily taxed, which could price RR's hybrid out of the market.
