Land Rover planning 16 new vehicle launches

JonathanNovember 7, 2012

An ambitious plan by Land Rover has inadvertently been leaked, which reveals that the British vehicle manufacturer is looking to release 16 new models by 2020.

The expansive line-up was revealed by accident as design director Gerry McGovern presented a PowerPoint display on the new Range Rover, which is set to hit UK roads in the new year.

However, during the presentation, a slide flashed up which featured silhouettes of a further 16 vehicles being touted for production by Land Rover over the next seven years.

Reported to be a part of the £10 billion investment planned by Jaguar Land Rover for the next five years, the line-up features six Range Rovers, five Discovery and Freelander models, and five unique varieties of the Land Rover Defender.

Full details of the leak have been revealed in the latest edition of Autocar magazine, with the publication’s associate editor Hilton Holloway suggesting that Land Rover “is on a roll”.

He added: “Perhaps the biggest area where Land Rover can make headway is in the mid-market ‘leisure sector’ where six million annual sales are up for grabs. As Land Rover’s future line-up shows, it needs to build a family of cars in the sector where the current Freelander and Discovery compete.”

Other cars in the proposed line-up include a new flagship Range Rover, set for launch in 2016, a nifty Range Rover ‘Baby’ Evoque and a high-capacity Pick-Up Defender.

Drivers can already get an idea of the joy presented when driving a vehicle built on the Land Rover production line by checking out a variety of contact hire deals.

A special edition Range Rover 4.4 TDV8 Westminster four-door in automatic is available with monthly instalments of £1,004.02 and gives motorists a vehicle that boasts 0-62mph in just 7.5 seconds while presenting an impressive average of 30.1mpg.

Meanwhile, the Range Rover Evoque 2.0 Si4 Dynamic five-door hatchback is the Land Rover of choice for those after a sophisticated design that is sure to catch the eye. It is available for just £562.21 per month.
