‘Green’ Range Rover Evoque

A 68mpg version of the revised Evoque becomes a reality thanks to frugal new engines.

“The most efficient production Land Rover ever” will make its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.

The new-look Range Rover Evoque range will go on sale later this year boasting the option of new Ingenium diesel engines.

Outside the new Evoque is distinguished by a new front bumper, grille designs, LED headlights and alloy wheels. Interior tweaks include new seats, the introduction of a new infotainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen and new trim colours.

But the biggest headline grabber is the introduction of a new four-cylinder Ingenium engine bringing a “class-leading combination of performance, refinement and efficiency”.

The engine, which is designed, engineered and manufactured in the UK, provides fuel economy of up to 68mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 109g/km – making the new Evoque the most efficient Land Rover ever produced.

“The Evoque has proven to be an enormous success in the UK with sales of 62,000 since its launch back in 2011,” said Jeremy Hicks, Jaguar Land Rover UK Managing Director.

“The 2016 model year Evoque builds on this achievement with a new engine line up delivering outstanding CO2 emissions down to 109g/km and for the first time; an all-wheel drive version under 130g/km.

“This combined with intelligent and relevant technology will ensure that the Range Rover Evoque is an attractive proposition to both private and fleet & business customers.”

More than 400,000 Evoques have been produced globally since its introduction in 2011 making the premium compact SUV the fastest-selling Land Rover of all time.

Last year marked the Evoque’s most successful year to date, with 125,364 global sales.
