Land Rover’s 7-seater Freelander on hold

Land Rover LR2 HSE

Land Rover’s seven-seat Freelander, which was due out next year, has been postponed because the company claims, as one source told AutoCar, “we have other priorities,”.

The automaker will instead focus its energies on developing the LRX, expected to launch in 2012 and sell around 70,000 units.

Land Rover confirmed production of the LRX 2 weeks ago. The model will be built at Land Rover’s Gaydon facility and will debut next year. It will join the Range Rover line-up in 2011.
