Update - Prices listed are ex-showroom and not on-road as previously understood.
The facelifted Land Rover Freelander 2 has reached certain JLR outlets in India. One IAB reader wrote in to us along with these snaps taken at a dealership that serves as concrete evidence to the claim. We're not entirely sure of the next fact - these are locally made Freelanders rolled out from the Tata' revamped Chikhli facility in Pune.
The Freelander 2 has been runaway success with over 200,000 of them shifted in less than four years. The Freelander 2 went into production in 2006.
Back in the first week of March, a top Tata official said the plant, previously used by Mercedes Benz, will push out 2,000 units a year. The reader adds that two variants are on sale for about 35 lakh and 39 lakh rupees (ex-showroom) in certain parts of North India. There is no official word from Tata Motors except for a promise that the Freelander 2 will be assembled in India this year.
The facelifted Freelander 2 has minor cosmetic changes to its front fascia. A new grille, reworked bumper, altered fog lamps and air intakes are the only changes on the 2011 model shown above. Indian Autos Blog brought leaked brochure shots of the 2011 model back in July last year and speculated if it was indeed the model that would be assembled in India this year.
