Range Rover LRX to Enter Production in 2011

After we previously reported that Land Rover confirmed that it will start mass production of its LRX Concept model, the automaker today revealed the LRX will debut next year and join the Range Rover lineup 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.
