It is a demonstration of our commitment to investing for the future, to continue to deliver relevant vehicles for our customers, with the outstanding breadth of capability for which we are world-renowned' affirms Phil Popham, Land Rover managing director in a press statement.

Phil continued 'Feedback from our customer research also fully supports our belief that a production version of the LRX Concept would further raise the desirability of our brand and absolutely meet their expectations'.

Just a few details unfortunately about the LRX production unit have been surfaced, but the carmaker from Britain says it will give more info in 2010.

The design director of Land Rover - Gerry McGovern 'The new vehicle will be a natural extension to the Range Rover line-up, complementing the existing models and helping to define a new segment. It will be true to the concept and have many recognizable Range Rover design cues including the signature clamshell bonnet, the floating roof and the solid 'wheel-at-each-corner' stance'.
