LAND ROVER CELEBRATES PRODUCTION OF THE 250,000TH FREELANDER 2

28 MARCH 2011

Gaydon, Warwickshire, 28 March 2011 – Land Rover employees at the Company's Halewood manufacturing plant in Merseyside are today celebrating an important milestone achievement − the production of the 250,000th Freelander 2.

Production of the Freelander 2 began in 2007 and today, the plant's 250,000th Freelander 2 will be driven off of the line. Land Rover is also celebrating a growing demand for Halewood's award winning model as retail sales for the popular model are up 22%, year to date (Apr 2010 – Feb 2011) compared with the same 11 month period in 2009/2010.

The 250,000th vehicle is a 2.2 litre TD4 Diesel GS in Fuji White and is destined for a customer who lives in Scotland.

Halewood operations director Richard Else, commented: "This milestone achievement and the increasing sales for Freelander 2 highlights just how important this vehicle is, not just to Halewood but also for the regional and UK economy − around 70% of Freelanders produced at Halewood are exported overseas. I'd like to thank our flexible and highly skilled workforce and congratulate the Halewood team on this superb achievement."

The 2011 Freelander 2 is available with either 2WD or 4WD and a refined 2.2 litre diesel engine offering two power outputs – the 190hp SD4 and the 150hp TD4. With class-leading on and off-road performance, featuring Terrain ResponseTM, a premium cabin, improved fuel economy and an affordable cost of ownership, click here to find your local Land Rover dealer.
