Though total costs will be closer to 400 million if rumours are believed.
The new concept will hit showrooms in 2011 and is designed to be the most green Range Rover yet with an emissions promise of 150g co2/km and a hybrid version is also thought to be under development, capable of returning less than 120g co2/km.
