Land Rover Discovery Sport enters production in the UK image

The British based automaker JLR has officially announced the production start of the Land Rover Discovery Sport, in the United Kingdom, where the first model has just rolled off the assembly line.

The very first unit of the brand new Land Rover Discovery Sport has recently rolled off the assembly line in the United Kingdom and the company said that it will be heading to Virgin Galactic. According to the car manufacturer, the model in question will be used to prepare the launch of the first commercial spaceline the world has seen, but it declined to go into specifics.

We are not even sure what will be powering the first production model of the Discovery Sport but we do know that the vehicle can be had with either the 2.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, rate at 240 HP (179 kW) and 338 Nm (250 lb-ft) of torque, or a 2.2 liter SD4 turbo diesel, aimed towards the Old Continent, which is rated in at 190 HP (139 kW). As you probably already know by now, the Land Rover Discovery Sport has been officially presented to the public during the 2014 Paris Motor Show, earlier this month, and it has been heavily influenced by the Range Rover Evoque.
