Recently this model achieved a new milestone as the 200,000th model rolls off the production line at Land Rover’s award-winning plant in Halewood, Liverpool.
The Freelander 2 became the first SUV vehicle in the world to use intelligent Stop/Start technology in early 2009. Since then, Stop/Start has been fitted as standard to all diesel manual Freelander 2 vehicles and accounts for almost 50% of Freelander 2 sales globally.
Halewood Operations Director Michael Straughan said, “This achievement is thanks to the Halewood workforce, who have continuously driven improvements since the launch of Freelander 2 to maximise customer satisfaction. I’d like to congratulate the Halewood workforce on this team achievement.”
