Designer Gerry McGovern

The Land Rover Coupe SUV Concept is an upcoming crossover SUV coupe Concept Car that will introduce Land Rover's future styling direction as well reinvent Land Rover's image into a green, low C02 environmentally-conscious marque. It is expected to be introduced at the Detroit Motor Show in January 2008 as a sportier alternative to the Land Rover LR2/Freelander, slotting below and above the entry-level SUV.

It is also the first Land Rover to be design by Gerry McGovern as Land Rover's CoD. As of this writing, there are no other information available and the name itself is not yet released or confirmed.

Concept

Overview

The LRX is the most compact Land Rover to date. Its size complements a wide array of efficiency improving technologies in the form of Land Rover’s e_Terrain technologies. These include biofuel compatibility, lightweight construction materials and technologies such as the removable carbon composite roof panels, regenerative brakes, a stop-start system, and the ERAD (electric rear axle drive) parallel hybrid powertrain system.<ref>Template:Citation/core{{#if:|}}</ref> ERAD encompasses the incorporation of an electric motor into the rear axle of the vehicle. It will propel the LRX to speeds of up to 20 mph (32 km/h) before the engine is ignited by and integrated starter generator as part of the stop-start system. ERAD is designed to reduce CO2 emissions by an average of 20 percent under the NEDC test cycle but is expected to offer another 10 percent reduction in extra-urban driving situations. The system has been designed to also optimise the off-road ability of the vehicle Land Rover aims to achieve 120 g/km CO2 emissions and fuel economy of 60 mpg-imp (4.7 L/100 km; 50 mpg-US) on the European combined cycle. Achieving this is an efficient 2.0 litre turbodiesel engine.<ref name="http">Template:Citation/core{{#if:|}}</ref>

The LRX also boasts the latest incarnation of Land Rover’s acclaimed Terrain Response system offering a range of new and existing modes. These include general driving; grass/gravel/snow; sand; and new to the LRX are sports and eco modes.

Typical Land Rover design traits designed to improve off-road performance and practicality include the command driving position, hill descent control and good approach and departure angles. A Land Rover first is the air intake being integrated into the roof to offer exceptional wading capabilities.

The Range Rover DNA is visually apparent in the form of the clamshell bonnet, the ‘floating’ roof, the dual-pocket headlamps, and, borrowed from the Range Rover Sport, the raked roofline.

Interior

Another main focus for Land Rover in terms of future design direction is the interior. Ambient interior lighting changes with the Terrain Response settings and vehicle data is presented by a ‘floating’ three-dimensional LCD display. An aluminium centre console with an iphone docking station stretches the length of the cabin, separating the four seats and the tailgate features two padded seating areas and integrated cupholders. The seats have open frameworks to give the impression of a light, airy interior while also creating useful under-seat and under-floor stowage areas. The articulated mechanism of the powered rear seats maximises interior flexibility and produces a large, flat storage area when needed. With the rear seats folded forward, two mountain bikes can be fitted upright behind them, with front wheels removed and stored in dedicated slots in the floor. Large luggage items such as skis and surfboards can also be easily accommodated in the generous load space.<ref name="http"/>
