Geneva '08 Preview: Land Rover LRX goes black, stays green

Click image for a hi-res gallery of the black & silver Land Rover LRX

The Land Rover LRX, a revelation in white, was one of the stars of this year's Detroit Auto Show. The rakish SUV coupe complemented its looks and off-road capabilities with a green powertrain. For Geneva, the LRX remains equipped with a 2.0L diesel hybrid drivetrain theoretically capable of delivering 60 mpg in the EU combined cycle while emitting just 120 g/km of CO2. Land Rover has also prepared a second LRX -- the black-and-silver one above -- to join the white one onstage. The nattily-dressed concept is there to show what a more personalized LRX would look like and to help Land Rover gauge interest in a possible production model. Two versions of the same hybrid SUV concept? We'll say this: if nothing else, Land Rover sure seems plenty interested. Good thing. So are we.
