Jaguar Land Rover has applied to trademark the 
name ‘Landy’, which could be used on a future urban SUV.

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.

There have been persistent rumours that 
Land Rover is seriously considering building a 
fashionable urban SUV based on the Evoque 
platform and with similar styling to the DC100 concept. 

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.
