Separately, Land Rover announced today it will introduce a 2WD vehicle in its line-up, as well as a hybrid. According to Land Rover, the 2WD version will go on sale next year and will use a powerplant which will emit less than 130 g/km of CO2.
“A 2WD option is just one way in which we are developing our vehicles efficiency whilst adding to the Land Rover range and expanding our customer base,” Phil Popham, Land Rover managing director, said in a release. “We will continue to make the 'world's finest all-terrain vehicles' for those customers who require 4WD but will also now offer an alternative to those that don't."
