Range Rover 2002
London – The new Range Rover has been officially unveiled at a special media and VIP reception at the Design Museum in London. It is only the third new Range Rover model in 31 years. Sales start on 15 February.
Bob Dover, president of Land Rover, unveiled the new vehicle before 200 guests. Also attending were Dr Wolfgang Reitzle, the president of the Premier Automotive Group – Ford Motor Company’s prestige automotive division, of which Land Rover forms part – and Geoff Upex, design director for Land Rover.
‘We are confident that the new vehicle will continue Range Rover’s reputation as a British design icon with great international appeal,’ said Dover. ‘It is a truly distinctive vehicle that provides outstanding capability both on- and off-road.’
The new Range Rover was designed at Land Rover’s corporate, design and engineering headquarters in Gaydon, Warwickshire, by a team led by Upex. It will be manufactured at Land Rover’s plant in Solihull on a brand new production line.
