Video: Land Rover took the covers off its all-new compact Range Rover Evoque
The new Range Rover Evoque two-door compact SUV debuted on Thursday, and it looks very much like the LRX concept that it is based on.
The Evoque was shown off in London to celebrate Range Rover's 40th birthday, with Victoria Beckham on hand, who will help with the design of the interior.
Land Rover says the Evoque will be the smallest, lightest and most fuel efficient Range Rover ever produced. Customers have a choice of both a 4WD and a 2WD version, with a sub 130g/km CO² demonstrating the Range Rover brand's commitment to environmental sustainability.
Phil Popham, managing director of Land Rover said: "The all-new Land Rover Range Rover Evoque, is an important step for the future continued success and growth of the brand. Customers can be confident that the new car will be premium, luxurious and just as special as the other Range Rover models. Its sporting looks and unique qualities will open the brand to a new group of customers who may not have considered a Range Rover product before."
The model is available in both two-door and four-door form. Base Evoques will be offered with FWD — making it the first two-wheel-drive Range Rover in history.
The Range Rover Evoque will be sold in over 160 countries, beginning in mid-2011.
