Range Rover Evoque enters final testing
Land Rover has exclusively dispatched 10 Range Rover Evoque Prototype rides to the world's most famous, busy cities, testing the qualities of the all-new luxury SUV as it is entering its final-phase of engineering tests. Dressed in fresh-and-funky camouflage that says ‘Hello' to each of the key cities, the sleek newcomer is scheduled for public debut at the Paris motor show 2010.
Headed to London, New York, Sao Paulo, Paris, Milan, Madrid, Berlin, Sydney, Shanghai and Moscow, the Range Rover Evoque prototypes are just a small proportion of the hundreds of pre-production vehicles that will be rigorously evaluated over millions of miles to ensure that the new sporty SUV will surpass the highest standards of quality and reliability.
Murray Dietsch, director of Land Rover programmes, shares: "The development stage is crucial in the year leading up to launching the car. No stone is left unturned; we have a team of experienced and skilled engineers who will work to a tight schedule to ensure we have a top quality vehicle to offer our customers."
When the sales start in summer 2011, the Range Rover Evoque will be offered with a choice of 2.0 and 2.2-litre Ford/PSA diesel units with front-wheel drive. Representing the serial version of the 2007 LRX concept car, the new Evoque also promises C02 emissions of under 130g/km.
