Very British Land Rover Discovery Vision Concept at 2014 NYIAS, #ReadyToDiscover

Land Rover today revealed its Discovery Vision Concept SUV at New York International Auto Show (NYIAS) 2014. A vision of Land Rover’s future Discovery vehicles, the first vehicle will be seen in 2015. Discovery Vision Concept was unveiled alongside a scale model of the Virgin Galactic spacecraft aboard the USS Intrepid in Manhattan a day earlier.

Land Rover Discovery Vision ConceptPhil Popham, Group Marketing Director, Jaguar Land Rover, said, “We announced at the Geneva Motor Show in March that the Discovery family is set to evolve. And it is apt that in the 25th anniversary year of the original Discovery that we preview how this evolution will take us forward into a daring new era. The Discovery Vision Concept gives us the first stunning glimpse into this hugely exciting future.”

Gerry McGovern, Design Director and Chief Creative Officer, Land Rover, said, “The Discovery Concept vehicle represents a Vision of our future family of leisure SUVs. Its modern, relevant and compelling design is a significant shift from Discovery as we know it, while well considered practicality, configurability and Land Rover’s capability seamlessly blend to create a highly desirable vehicle that connects on an emotional level.”

The advanced Discovery Vision Concept SUV interior is spacious and versatile coupled with future ready features and versatality is visible through its reconfigurable seating. The seven seat layout makes way for a six-seat, five-seat or even a four-seat ‘limousine’ mode interior via the touchscreen to fold seats flat or slide them back or forward. A smart interior accommodates luggage into the vehicle doors, and accessories into the seatbacks for improved convenience to passengers seated behind.

Discovery’s tailgate upholds a powered, single-piece design that puts into play a deployable rear sill step and a folding bench seat in the loading area. The sill step can also be fitted with a bike/ski rack.

Discovery Vision Concept interior sees a cabin finished in 2 innovative washable, and water and oil-repellent Foglizzo premium leather options that are easy to clean. Wood veneer on the floors and instrument panel paired with bespoke accessories lined in Harris Tweed showcase a British feeling of quality and craftsmanship.
