Land Rover employees at the company's Halewood manufacturing plant in Merseyside in the UK, are celebrating an important achievement - the production of the 250,000th Freelander 2.

Production began in 2007 and the plant's 250,000th Freelander 2 - a 2.2 litre TD4 Diesel GS in Fuji White - was driven off the line on 28th March 2011. The vehicle is destined for a customer who lives in Scotland.

Land Rover is also celebrating a growing demand for Halewood's award winning model as retail sales for the popular model are up 22% year to date (Apr 2010 - Feb 2011) compared with the same 11 month period in 2009/2010.

Halewood Operations Director Richard Else, commented: "This milestone achievement and the increasing sales for Freelander 2 highlight just how important this vehicle is, not just to Halewood but also for the regional and UK economy - around 70% of Freelanders produced at Halewood are exported overseas. I'd like to thank our flexible and highly skilled workforce and congratulate the Halewood team on this superb achievement."

The 2011 Land Rover Freelander 2 is available with a refined 2.2 litre diesel engine offering two power outputs - the 140 kW SD4 and the 110 kW TD4. With class-leading on and off-road performance, featuring Terrain ResponseTM, a premium cabin, improved fuel economy and an affordable cost of ownership. The MY11 Freelander 2 is now on-sale in Australia from $44,900* (MLP*).
