At last year’s New York Motor Show, Land Rover revealed the Discovery Vision Concept, the idea to take over from the current Discovery 4. The brand is now bringing this concept to life, and it has been spotted undergoing testing.
The big brother to the recently launched Discovery Sport will be released next year, and follows the refined look set by the latest Range Rover model range, offering a premium feel, inside and out.
Gerry McGovern, Land Rover Director of Design, stated: ‘I think Discoverys need to be more sexy’, and that is exactly the direction taken by the concept, imitated by the new Discovery.
There is no compromise on performance and ability though, with the Discovery staying true to its off-roading roots; a genuine seven-seater able to take on any terrain.
The new Discovery’s aluminium body will help to reduce weight and increase efficiency, transferring from the current frame and body construction to the more modern monocoque. Efficiency may be further improved with a hybrid option, taking the Land Rover Discovery to new heights.
