Presented for the first time in Detroit, the Land Rover LRX concept comes to Geneva with a new degree of customization and a hybrid system with exceptional consumption that figures for a SUV.
As the name suggests, the new model is painted in two colors and comes in first for Land Rover with carbon fiber elements and it is still designed to increase the strength and to reduce the weight. The LRX Black & Silver has new wheels, spoilers and it is slightly modified with anchor points for snowboards or other sport equipment and a new engine.
This concept is the most interesting, because according to a British company, the Land Rover 2.0 liter diesel engine is mated to a hybrid system that can allow the combined consumption of 4.7 liters at the speed of 100 km / h in the European combined cycle, which translates into a CO2 emission of only 120 g / km. Interestingly, this is achieved without the lowering the off-road performance specific to the British brand. The electric rear Axle Drive system allows the model to run solely on electricity at low speeds because meanwhile it is running faster and faster and the speed begins to grow, the heat engine is going to be started and will run in parallel with the electric motor to achieve the optimal operating point of functioning.
Land Rover has said that they currently have plans to introduce this concept in mass production, so that they are content of the level of LRX, so they will use the two concepts to promote its image in the world at various automobile events.
