Land Rover has announced it will introduce its first two-wheel drive model next year.

The company’s new compact Range Rover – which debuted as the LRX concept – will emit less than 130g/km of CO2 and will be first to feature two-wheel drive when it goes on sale in 2011.

As part of Jaguar-Land Rover £800million commitment to the development of environmental technologies, Land Rover is also developing its first diesel hybrid prototype – christened the ‘Range_e’ – with the goals of returning less than 100g/km of CO2, a top speed of 120mph and a 20 mile range using electric power only.

But will these steps come at the cost of what Land Rover’s managing director Phil Popham calls the ‘world’s finest all-terrain vehicles’? Have your say below.
