Gaydon, Warwickshire, England – Land Rover will build a production version of its LRX concept car, which will debut next year and join the Range Rover lineup in 2011.
Designed and engineered in Gaydon, the new Range Rover will be the smallest, lightest and most efficient vehicle the company has ever produced. It will be built at the company’s plant in Halewood and sold in over 100 countries worldwide.
“The new vehicle will be a natural extension to the Range Rover lineup, complementing the existing models and helping to define a new segment,” said Gerry McGovern, Land Rover design director. ‘It will be true to the concept and have many recognizable Range Rover design cues, including the signature clamshell bonnet, the floating roof and the solid wheel-at-each-corner stance.”
The company will release more details on the vehicle next year.
