Land Rover confirms LRX concept production

Land Rover LRX fq

Land Rover confirmed yesterday whats been long expected that the popular LRX Concept from last year’s Detroit Auto Show is headed for production. No announcement has been made on the SUVs name when it hits the market in 2011, but it will definitely be wearing a Range Rover badge and is likely to be marketed as a premium vehicle.

No details are given yet about the upcoming model’s powertrain, but Land Rover does say it “will be the smallest, lightest and most efficient vehicle the company has ever produced.” Previous reports have suggested the production LRX will share underpinnings with Land Rovers’s Freelander model and will be offered with an optional all-wheel-drive hybrid powertrain that will possibly use an electric motor to power the rear wheels and a conventional transverse engine driving the front wheels.

The basic shape from the LRX Concept car should be maintained, perhaps gaining a slightly more pronounced front styling.
