On June 17, 2010, Range Rover will celebrate its 40th anniversary and, if sources are to be believed, will unveil a new model based on the Land Rover LRX Concept. According to insiders that spoke with AutoCar, the Ranger Rover LRX will enter production in early 2011. The production LRX will be unveiled as a more environmentally-friendly face of an all SUV brand.
Land Rover unveiled the LRX concept in January 2008 at the Detroit Auto Show and was provided $37.2 million to start production by the UK government in March 2009 to produce the model.
It was recently reported that Land Rover executives have ‘greenlighted’ a hybrid version of the LRX .
