Land Rover’s LRX Concept takes a step closer to reality
Land Rover has announced that the British Government has confirmed that a grant offer of up to £27mil is to be made available to the company for the production of an all-new car.
If and when it does come, the car will be based on Land Rover’s acclaimed LRX Concept vehicle, first shown at the Detroit Show last year, and will be the smallest, lightest and most efficient it has ever produced, with new levels of refinement, improved all-round capability and new powertrain options.
The company is due to make a final decision later this year on the go-ahead of the project, and if so, the vehicle will be produced at the LR plant in Halewood.
Although it still has to go through a number of approval gateways in the product development process before getting the final go-ahead, Land Rover has also confirmed that the new car would be a key addition to the Range Rover family of luxury vehicles. offering Range Rover levels of quality, drivability and breadth of performance in a more compact, more sustainable, package.
