From last December through next month, 1,800 employees have either been laid off, released or asked to leave. Our government (UK) have already given Land Rover a £27 million ($38 million USD) loan to help put the LRX into production, but once its done doing that, will this car be as popular as any of its other not so eco-friendly models? One thing is for sure, its not going to be cheap.
