Since 1948 Land Rover has been manufacturing authentic 4x4s that represent true 'breadth of capability' across the
model range. Defender, LR2 (Freelander 2), LR3 (Discovery 3), Range Rover Sport and Range Rover each define the
world's 4x4 sectors, with 78% of this model range exported to over 140 countries. Land Rover employs 8,500 people
and supports a further 40,000 jobs supported in the supply chain.

Land Rover takes its responsibility to the environment seriously. Emissions have been cut with all new models and,
together with Jaguar, it is investing £700m on technology specifically aimed at reducing carbon dioxide emissions.
Also, since September 2006, carbon dioxide generated by Land Rover manufacturing activities and UK customer
vehicle use has been balanced through an industry leading offset program run by Climate Care.
