Land Rover has achieved a new production milestone as it has wheeled out the Six millionth production car from its Solihull manufacturing unit in the UK. The 6,000,000th vehicle is a Yulong White Range Rover LWB Vogue SE and it has been fitted with a bespoke puddle lamp graphic to signify its unique status. In addition, this special luxury SUV takes centre stage at the 2015 Shanghai Auto Show showcasing its one-off motif.
Andy Goss, Director, Group Sales Operations, Jaguar Land Rover, said: “For 67 years Land Rover has been building the world's most capable all-purpose vehicles. Over this period, a range of ground-breaking innovations and technologies have blended great design, refinement and unmatched all-terrain capability. It’s fitting that the 6,000,000th Land Rover to be produced is a Range Rover, since this year marks the 45th anniversary of the original Range Rover’s launch and even today, the vehicle remains peerless. With the growth of sales in China since the latest version of the Range Rover was introduced in 2012, it is entirely appropriate that this landmark vehicle is destined for a Chinese customer.”
The 6,000,000th Land Rover, as mentioned before, would be on the Land Rover stand at the Shanghai Auto Show, and will subsequently feature in a number of celebration events being staged in China to mark Range Rover’s 45th anniversary. Ultimately, this special Range Rover will be sold in the region and its specially commissioned puddle lamps will serve as a permanent reminder of the significance of this unique model in Land Rover’s history.
The luxury British automaker has been producing Range Rovers at the Solihull facility since 1948. The Solihull facility boasts Europe's largest aluminum body shop, producing the biggest single aluminium pressing of any vehicle for the Range Rover – weighing only 7kg.
