Land Rover’s Halewood production plant in the UK has built 600,000 units of the Evoque in just six years and the company says demand is still increasing for the pioneering luxury compact SUV that first appeared in 2011.
Six years after going on sale, sales reached an all-time high for a single month both globally and in the UK. The UK registered a record 6,781 Evoques in March 2017 and almost 18,000 Evoques were sold globally.
Now Land Rover has announced a new Landmark edition. The Evoque Landmark is available in a vibrant Moraine Blue colour, which the company says was inspired by the turquoise lakes of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Priced from £39,000, the Landmark edition made its debut at the Royal Windsor Horse Show on 10 May.
Jeremy Hicks, Managing Director, Jaguar Land Rover UK says, “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.”
The Evoque Landmark edition is also available in Yulong White and Corris Grey. It has a 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, fender 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. The Landmark edition also has Keyless Entry and Powered Gesture Tailgate convenience features as standard.
An Evoque rolls off the Halewood production line every 170 seconds, with Evoque Convertibles also being produced in Halewood since 2016. Most are for export to one of 130 markets, with additional manufacturing in China and Brazil to meet local market demand. In fact, 80 per cent of UK-built Evoque models are exported. Jaguar Land Rover is one of the UK’s largest exporters and generates around 80 per cent of its revenue from overseas sales.
The Landmark 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. The optional Remote Premium app for a smartphone or smart watch lets owners check the fuel level, lock status, location and even pre-heat or cool the cabin. Those wanting an enhanced Evoque infotainment experience can opt for Touch Pro Services, which offer 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 edition is based on the diesel, 180H TD4 Evoque priced at £39,000 for the manual and £40,840 for the automatic.
