Range Rover LRX to Enter Production in 2011
The model will be built at Land Rover's production facility in Halewood, UK, and will be the most eco-friendly vehicle in the whole product lineup of the company.
“The production of a small Range Rover model is excellent news for our employees, dealers and customers. It is a demonstration of our commitment to investing for the future, to continue to deliver relevant vehicles for our customers, with the outstanding breadth of capability for which we are world-renowned," says Phil Popham, managing director of Land Rover in a statement for the press.
"Feedback from our customer research also fully supports our belief that a production version of the LRX Concept would further raise the desirability of our brand and absolutely meet their expectations," Phil added.
Unfortunately, only a few details regarding the LRX production model have been provided, but the British carmaker says it will release further information as soon as next year.
"The new vehicle will be a natural extension to the Range Rover line-up, complementing the existing models and helping to define a new segment. It will be true to the concept and have many recognisable Range Rover design cues including the signature clamshell bonnet, the floating roof and the solid 'wheel-at-each-corner' stance," said Gerry McGovern, Land Rover design director.
