Land Rover is also looking at the pickup market too.

The next LR3/ Disco will then in all all likelyhood platform share with the next Defender and will slot more upmarket into Range Rover territory leaving Range Rover/ RR Sport free to move into the $200,000 price range where it can then use advanced technology to reduce Co2.

The new Freelander range/ LRX will then aim to bring Halewood upto capacity by making 210,000 units a year. In other words Land Rover will be exhausting most of the capacity available to it at Halewood and Solihull.

Land Rover seems to be a well managed company, these plans take them to another level in my view.

This is good, the new range rover based on the LRX will look gorgeous, I hope they launch them soon in India.
