Six years of sales success marked with £39k special edition.
Land Rover’s perennially successful Range Rover Evoque has hit 600,000 sales in six years. The firm is celebrating this with a new special edition called Landmark, which debuts at the Royal Windsor Horse Show.
Land Rover has just built the 600,000th Range Rover Evoque in just six years, and the firm is marking this with a new special edition called Landmark. Offered in flashy Moraine Blue, Yulong White or Corris Grey, it has special styling features outside and in, plus Ebony leather, keyless entry and electric gesture-controlled tailgate
Despite now being six years old, the Evoque shows no signs of tiring. In March 2017, 6,781 Evoques were registered in the UK, a monthly record: 18,000 were sold globally, a frankly remarkable new monthly record for the premium SUV. 8 in 10 Evoques built in the UK are exported globally, which is good news for UK PLC.
Jeremy Hicks, managing director of Jaguar Land Rover UK, said: “The Evoque has been an indisputable success. It’s our biggest selling model in the UK and continues to thrive six years after launch, it’s a fantastic achievement and worthy of celebration. The Landmark edition has new dynamic detailing and a distinctive aesthetic which takes its design credentials to an even higher level – it looks fantastic and we know customers will love it.”
Outside, you’ll spot a Range Rover Evoque Landmark from its 19-inch gloss dark grey alloys, plus Graphite Atlas grill, bonnet lettering, wing vents and tailgate lettering. There’s also a fixed Carpathian Grey panoramic roof. Inside, it has brushed satin trim, and those Ebony leather seats with perforated centre and contrast Light Lunar stitching.
The £39,000 model is a 2.0-litre TD4 manual; an automatic gearbox is optional, as is the fancy Moraine Blue colour seen in these press images – it’s a premium paint option. Ordering opens on 10 May, following the car’s debut at the Royal Windsor Horse Show.
To illustrate how many Evoques it still makes, Land Rover gave us a top fact: a new Evoque is built every 170 seconds, and as the Halewood, Merseyside plant runs around the clock, this is a 24/7 statistic…
