A milestone event is being celebrated today at Land Rover's Halewood manufacturing plant in Merseyside, with the production of the 250,000th Land Rover Freelander 2.
Land Rover Freelander 2 production commenced in 2007. Land Rover is also celebrating growing demand for the Land Rover Freelander 2, which is up 22%, year to date (April 2010 - February 2011) compared to the same period between 2009/2010.
The 250,000th Land Rover Freelander 2 is a 2.2 litre TD4 Diesel GS in Fuji White, and will be going to a customer living 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 Land Rover Freelander 2 is available in either 2WD or 4WD with a diesel engine offering outputs of 190hp (SD4) and 150hp (TD4). Prices start from £21,995 on the road.Published 28 March 2011
