About Sunroof Electrics

Most modern vehicle sunroofs are operated electrically, involving a cable that is driven by an electric motor which causes the window to slide open. There are various types of Land Roverelectric sunroof.

A spoiler is a type of Land Roverelectric sunroof that is particularly suited to vehicles with only a limited roof area. They tilt and slide open above the roof, offering only a relatively limited opening to the air compared to other types of sunroof.

Another type of Land Roverelectric sunroof, also referred to as a moonroof, involves a panel which slides below the roof into an interior cavity. This is an inbuilt sunroof, which is only suitable for larger cars, which typically is  made from glass with a sliding sunscreen attached.

In top-mount sliding sunroofs a large glass panel slides open along tracks on top of the roof, whilst panoramic sunroofs offer large openings above the front and rear seats using the same  mechanism as top-mount or spoiler sunroofs.

Land RoverElectric sunroofs are either fitted to a vehicle on the assembly line or after construction by a specialist Land Roverelectric sunroof fitter and are operated by a simple electric switch located on the instrument panel of the vehicle or in close proximity to the sunroof itself.

Land Rover trivia

  • The Queen loves Land Rovers and is reported to have owned as many as 30 different models in her life. It was in a Land Rover Defender that her majesty terrified the then Crown Prince Abdullah with her wild driving skills.
  • Land Rovers and James Bond go hand in hand. The 4x4 Land Rover has been in more Bond films than there have been Bond actors! In Spectre, the Defender SVX was customised with 37-inch tyres and more power.
  • Inspired by the Jeeps that had been used in WWII, the first Land Rover's steering wheel was in the middle of the dashboard. This was partly to counter the need to create left and right-hand drive models for different countries.
  • Most cars get an immediate redesign after the prototype is designed. Not with the Range Rover, however! The 1966 design was considered perfect as it was, which never happens in the automotive industry. The Range Rover is considered a work of art, and one of them is even on display in the Louvre.
  • The designer Charles S. King worked with Rolls Royce to design jet engines before going on to build the Range Rover. King would go onto building a car around those jet engines that then held the world land speed record, the first turbine-powered vehicle to do so.
