Land Rover first indicated interest in hybrid vehicles with the Land-E diesel-electric concept vehicle it showed last year in Geneva.
But according to a print-only blurb in the May 16 issue of Autocar, the oddly styled futurethink Landie isn’t just a flash in the pan—the British 4×4 experts are pursuing hybrid models full-tilt. In fact, according to Autocar, while any production hybrids are unlikely to be diesel (too costly), the company is working to develop a system that it can apply throughout the range.
