Land Rover's DC100 concept hinted at a baby model
The company has now applied to trademark the name 'Landy'
The name could be used to identify a new urban SUV
That model would likely be part based on the DC100 concept
The application was made last month and is intended to cover everything from vehicles and associated accessories to clothing, scale models and franchising for vehicle dealerships.
Officials admitted that such a car was being considered but that no business case had been made. The arrival of the Mk3 Mini family and the prospect of a new front-wheel-drive BMW X1 and an Audi Q1 crossover could have combined to reignite the Land Rover project.
