Paris, France 30th September 2010 – The groundbreaking, all-new Range Rover Evoque makes its global public debut at the 2010 Paris Motor Show.

Dr Ralf Speth, CEO, Jaguar Land Rover, said: ‘These are exciting times for our business as we continue to widen our portfolio wîth this all-new addition to the Range Rover line-up. Not only will the Range Rover Evoque increase our worldwide market share, but it demonstrates our commitment to building sustainable, yet highly desirable products.’

Dr Speth continued: ‘The Evoque helps to define a new §egmènt for premium compact SÚVs that are more sporting and stylish. It makes a strong statement about the future direction of the Range Rover brand and will have a powerful emotional appeal to a very broad range of premium car buyers.’

The Range Rover Evoque has turned the much-acclaimed LRX concept car into reality, faithfully capturing the spirit of its landmark cross-coupé design.

True to the Range Rover brand, the Evoque effortlessly delivers premium levels of craftsmanship, luxury and performance, but shrink-wrapped into a more compact package.

The lightest and most fuel-efficient Range Rover ever, the Evoque demonstrates the marque’s commitment to environmental sustainability, bringing sub-130g/km* CO2 capability to the premium SÚV class.

Phil Popham, managing director of Land Rover, said: ‘The groundbreaking, all-new Range Rover Evoque takes the brand into exciting new territory. Highly relevant and contemporary, the Evoque will appeal to a whole new group of customers who may not have considered a Range Rover before.

‘For this highly distinctive product, we have chosen a distinctive name. The all-new Range Rover Evoque will be sold in over 160 countries worldwide and its name will be instantly recognisable across language and cultural boundaries throughout the world. Evoque implies exclusivity and arouses emotions, and has a sophisticated aura that matches the car’s urban elegance,’ he added.

Dr Speth continued: ‘This vehicle has been designed, engineered and will be manufactured in the ÚK, allowing the creation of more than 1,000 jobs at our multi award-winning Halewood plant in Merseyside. This employment boost, paired wîth the fact that over 80 per cent of Range Rover Evoque production is planned for export, will be a fantastic support to the ÚK economy.’

Evolution of Range Rover design

The all-new Range Rover Evoque takes its inspiration directly from the LRX concept car, which drew worldwide acclaim for its exciting new interpretation of classic Range Rover design cues.

Smart design in conjunction wîth meticulous engineering allowed the spirit of the LRX concept to be turned into reality without compromising the core Range Rover values of interior luxury, refined performance and all-terrain capability.

Gerry McGovern, Land Rover design director, said: ‘The Range Rover Evoque marks a bold evolution of Range Rover design by adopting new interpretations of classic Range Rover design cues and staying true to the core Range Rover values.

‘With its dramatic rising beltline, a muscular shoulder running the length of the car, and a distinctive taper to the floating roofline, the Evoque adopts a very dynamic profile wîth a powerful and athletic stance.’

Pushing the wheels out to the four corners helps give the car its purposeful stance. The wheelarches are wide, but softly integrated into the body, while the carefully sculpted corners dramatically reduce the car’s visual overhangs front and rear.

Impeccably crafted luxury interior

Beneath its dramatic exterior, the Range Rover Evoque provides customers wîth an impeccably crafted luxury cabin, incorporating the premium quality materials and elegant design expected of a Range Rover interior.

Gerry McGovern continued: ‘The strong, simple architecture of the cabin is evident wîth the bold intersection between the solid horizontal elements of the instrument panel and the powerful vertical lines of the centre console.’

Úniquely in the compact SÚV §egmènt, the Evoque allows customers to specify a lavishly appointed cabin, wîth soft, premium leather and beautifully tailored, twin-needle stitching providing a luxurious finish to almost every surface of the instrument panel, doors and seats.

In bold contrast to the comforting aroma and supple feel of natural hides, authentic metal finishes provide a series of striking highlights. Cold to the touch and exquisitely crafted, the metal finishes are a tactile and visual reminder of the superior interior quality.

The instrument cluster, housed beneath a compact curved binnacle, adds to the sporty, premium feel of the interior. The twin dials have an attractive, three-dimensional form wîth chunky, illuminated chaplets and needles, and are set deep in circular housings finished wîth bright chrome rims.

Total comfort and practicality

The driver adopts a lower seating position than in one of the larger Range Rovers, offering a more sporting feel but retaining the important Command Driving Position. The result is more generous headroom than is traditionally found in many sporting saloons, despite the low-profile coupé roofline.

Drivers who take their Range Rover Evoque off-road will be reassured to know that in addition to extremely generous ground clearance, the car has a significantly better breakover angle, approach angle and departure angle than other premium compact SÚVs.

Dynamic handling and effortless, refined performance

Land Rover engineers have developed the Range Rover Evoque to provide customers wîth a polished driving experience that combines dynamic and sporty handling wîth responsive, effortless performance and refinement.

Murray Dietsch, director of Land Rover programmes, said: ‘We’ve tuned the Evoque’s chassis and Electric Power-Assisted Steering (EPAS) to deliver precise and responsive §teering at lower speeds, making the car nimble and fun to drive in the city. As the Evoque is lighter, wîth a compact footprint, it reacts quickly and positively to driver inputs at higher speeds, ensuring that enthusiastic drivers are offered the agility they want from a car.’

This engaging and sporting character has not been achieved at the expense of harshness or poor comfort and refinement. Adaptive Dynamics uses advanced MagneRide™ dampers which provide a particularly good balance of confident, nimble handling and supple, controlled ride. The suspension delivers even tighter body control, wîth flatter handling and sharper responses.

As a true Range Rover, the Evoque delivers the all-weather, all-surface capability that is a hallmark of the brand. In common wîth its larger siblings, the new model provides formidable all-terrain potential, enhanced by the latest version of the company’s signature Terrain ResponseTM system.

The Evoque will be the first Range Rover to offer customers a choice between the standard, full-time, intelligent, four-wheel-drive system, which delivers outstanding performance and traction on all surfaces, and a low-carbon, two-wheel-drive option for further enhanced fuel economy.

The turbocharged powertrain line-up offers smooth and responsive performance. Customers can choose from the comprehensively updated 2.2-litre turbodiesel wîth 190PS or 150PS derivatives. The four-wheel-drive version combined wîth the 150PS 2.2-litre will offer up to an impressive 50mpg* and 145g/km* CO2.

The state-of-the-art new 240PS, 2.0-litre Si4 petrol engine combines direct fuel injection, turbocharging and twin variable valve timing for exceptional driveability and fuel efficiency.

Murray Dietsch continued: ‘The state-of-the-art, four-cylinder, turbocharged engines combine six-cylinder refinement and performance wîth fuel economy figures of up to 58mpg* and emissions of sub 130g/km* CO2. These impressive figures have been achieved by the product development team’s commitment to delivering a compact and weight-efficient product, wîth no compromise on durability and robustness.’
