lrx concept at Range Rover LRX officially confirmed for 2011

Land Rover has officially announced that the LRX Concept will make its way into production and will debut next year as a 2011 model. It will be added to the the company’s current range including the Vouge, Sport, LR4,LR2 and Defender. The LRX is going to be a small, sporty and efficient vehicle and will also come in a two-door version sharing its platform with the LR2 FreeLander.

The first test mules of the production LRX has already been caught by spy photographers but details of it are yet to be released. One may think of this car as a posh version of the FreeLander which possibly can get a hybrid variant.

The LRX will be built at company’s plant in Halewood, on Merseyside so there should be no worries about the car’s quality!! 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.”

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.”
