Geneva 2008: Land Rover LRX gets blacker and better
At the Geneva Motor Show, Land Rover brought a new, improved version of the Land Rover LRX Concept. This one is black and is powered by a 2.0 litre turbo diesel which will have an estimated fuel economy of 60 mpg (4.7 litres/100 km), while CO2 emissions would be 120g/km. Also, the concept will feature a new technology concept, Electric Rear Axle Drive (ERAD) which allows the vehicle electric drive alone at lower speeds, plus Terrain Response technology, new Eco mode and Sports mode for sportier feel.
The roof panel and the underbody are now made of lightweight materials, like carbon, which, besides making the car lighter, offer improved safety. With Land Rover presenting this new version of the LRX, we can only assume that they really have some serious plans for this car, which is great news.
