For anyone not familiar, it is the soon to be British built replacement for the Land Rover.
Interesting to note they are looking at Diesel, hybrid and all electric drive trains, so sounds like they will be pitching it hard at the military for their new electric ambitions.
No pictures of the vehicle yet, just an artists impression of how the site at Bridgend will look:

It would be nice to see a proper British car again (Ok, with a german/Merc partner) .. on a road near you from 2021..
Just thought I'd create a thread to plot its progress, release, success or collapse..

The story in the link below is a little short on detail but it's been expanded upon on the radio.
This applies from 2022, rather than some kick down the road 2040 date as for EVs, so it looks like it's going to happen.
The limiter is also going to be an "intelligent" limiter which will work on the speed limit of your road. You know those dot matrix signs on motorways where they leave up the 50mph limit for hours after any accident so you ignore them if the road is obviously clear: ignoring is no longer an option.
I'm not a great speeder myself but have a powerful car which lets me get past slow moving vehicles which usually involves speeding for the overtake and that won't be possible.
I know it's the EU but you can guarantee the UK will bring it in as well.
Anyone else see there being a huge premium on current, unlimited, fast cars in the future?

Manufacturing slump puts UK economy into reverse as Brexit looms
GDP contracts by 0.4% in December in weakest year for growth since 2012
The Office for National Statistics said gross domestic product contracted by 0.4% from the previous month, fuelled by a fall in spending on the high street over the key festive shopping period.
Growth in 4th Qtr was 0.2%
Annual growth 1.4%
Even the So-Called BBC reported it more accurately:
Growth in the year was 1.4%, down from 1.8% in 2017 and the slowest rate since 2012, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) said.
According to the ONS, quarterly growth also slowed, falling to 0.2% in the three months to December - down from 0.6% in the three months to September.
They focus on the December figure (-0.4%) and make a meal of that rather that the more useful Quarterly and Annual figures.
They should be sued for misrepresentation. They can't go bust soon enough.
