Land Rover will be putting the LRX concept into production
24 September 2009

Land Rover has officially confirmed it will be putting its Range Rover LRX concept car into production in 2011.

Designed and engineered at Land Rover's Gaydon facility, the new Range Rover will be the smallest, lightest and most efficient vehicle the company has ever produced. It will be built at its plant in Halewood, on Merseyside.

As previously reported by Autocar, the LRX is expected to be unveiled in production form on 17 June next year. This date is significant, as it will mark exactly 40 years since the original Range Rover was first revealed to the public.

Phil Popham, managing director of Land Rover said, “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.

"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.”

Gerry McGovern, Land Rover design director said, "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."

You are a nutter, who makes less sense than the current government - go and bother some other website and leave this one to people who can make sensible arguments, for and against the subject.


IDIOT.

News just in from BBC: JLR are closing 1 of their midlands plants. New models with Jag and LR, I just don't see that sales have dopped off that significantly to shut down an entire facility? Where's teh capacity going to come from?

Ricky Hatton? For a boxing match? LOOOOL

He'd have no chance, I'm too big, too strong, too heavy and too powerful for Ricky. A washed up Mike Tyson would batter me, but Ricky??? He's short light weight... ;-)

I don't think you know much about fighting, size, weight and strength does matter! ;-)

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out

    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again

    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
