Land Rover recently marked a milestone in the production of the Freelander 2 as the 300,000th unit rolled out of the company's Halewood plant in Merseyside in the United Kingdom.
According to Land Rover, the 300,000th unit is a 2.2-liter, diesel-powered model clad in Barolo Black which will be shipped to Brazil, one of the brand's fastest-growing markets where it currently holds a 40-percent share of the SUV market.
Production of the Freelander 2 reportedly started in October 2006, also at the carmaker's Halewood factory.
"I'd like to congratulate the Halewood team for reaching this superb milestone and also for sustaining the highest quality standards on the Freelander 2 even during the Range Rover Evoque launch period," said Land Rover's Halewood operations director, Richard Else. "The Freelander was Land Rover's biggest-selling model last year retailing around 52,000 units globally."
