Land Rover’s Halewood production plant in the UK has built 600,000 units of the Range Rover Evoque in just six years.
Land Rover says demand is still increasing for luxury compact SUV which has been exported to customers around the world since 2011. Sales recently reached an all-time high for a single month both globally and in the UK - here a record 6,781 Evoques were registered in March 2017 and almost 18,000 Evoques were sold globally.
To celebrate the milestone, Land Rover has announced a new Evoque Landmark edition. Available in a vibrant Moraine Blue colour – 'inspired by the turquoise lakes of the Canadian Rocky Mountains' - it’s priced from £39,000, and will make its global debut at the Royal Windsor Horse Show on 10 May, when orders will open.
The Evoque Landmark edition is also available in Yulong White and Corris Grey. It has a 'dynamic' body kit and grey exterior design details including a fixed panoramic roof in Carpathian Grey, 19-inch Gloss Dark Grey alloy wheels and Graphite Atlas grille, bonnet, wing vent and tailgate lettering. Dark grey accents continue on the interior in the form of brushed satin centre console trim finishers surrounded by grained Ebony leather seats with contrasting Light Lunar stitching and a perforated mid-section. Keyless Entry and Powered Gesture Tailgate feature as standard.
The special edition is available with Land Rover’s latest technology including optional 10-inch InControl Touch Pro system featuring apps such as Spotify and a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot. Touch Pro Services can also be specified, which offers real-time traffic mapping, satellite and ‘street level’ views and a ‘Live Apps’ sidebar with weather, news headlines, a flight tracker and more.
The Landmark model is based on the diesel, 180H TD4 Evoque priced at £39,000 for the manual and £40,840 for the automatic.
