Due to the increasingly environmental awareness in the auto industry, rumors has it that Land Rover, with a bit help from U.K government, has come out with plans to launch the new LRX compact hybrid.

Land Rover will borrow liberally from corporate partner Jaguar’s hardware stable including both hybrid and extended-range EV options. Land rover ‘s innovative electric drive rear axle should be on the LRX menu, which would work along with the automaker’s well known and highly effective Terrain Response System to put power to the ground wherever possible.

Don’t expect Land Rover to have the hybrid LRX in the next two years. For now, the British-built, Indian-owned automaker is set to debut stop/start and regenerative braking on all of its models to improve their environmental performance.
