Land Rover design director Gerry McGovern revealed during the Paris Motor Show some details regarding the company's future.

In an interview with Australian journalists at the Paris Motor Show, Gerry McGovern said the Discovery family will grow beyond the current two members. We remind you at the moment the range includes the Freelander 2 (to be replaced in 2015 by Discovery Sport) and the bigger Discovery which is bound to receive a new generation in 2016.

The identity of the third Discovery-labelled model is not known at this point but Jaguar Land Rover global operations directory Andy Goss responded with "quite possibly" when asked about the potential of a smaller model to slot beneath the recently unveiled Discovery Sport. However, don't expect an official launch in the near future as the model will probably be introduced at the end of the decade, at the earliest.

Gerry McGovern has also confirmed plans for a fourth distinct Range Rover member to sit alongside the Evoque, Range Rover Sport and Range Rover. It won't be a derivative of an existing model and we know from McGovern that it's not going to be a seven-seater or a coupe-ish model like the BMW X4 & X6 duo.
