Hybrid Land Rover LRX set for production

Hybrid Land Rover LRX set for production

Landrover LRX fq

Automakers that want to be successful over the next few years need to be increasingly aware of their fuel consumption, emissions and environmental cred. Apparently in reflection of this new ethos Land Rover is pushing forward with plans to launch its new LRX compact hybrid ‘ute, possibly with a bit of help from the U.K. government.

According to recent reports, Land Rover will use technology from corporate partner Jaguar’s hardware stable, which will soon include both hybrid and extended-range EV options. Land Rover’s innovative electric drive rear axle is supposedly on the LRX menu, which would muck in with the automaker’s well-known and highly-effective Terrain Response System to put power to the ground.

If these unconfirmed reports ring true, we shouldn’t expect Land Rover to have the hybrid LRX in production for at least two years. In the meantime, the British-built, Indian-owned automaker is set to debut stop/start and regenerative braking on all of its models to step up their environmental status.
