The first official picture of the all-new compact Range Rover…

Named the Range Rover Evoque, this all-new coupé will join the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport line-up in the summer of 2011. It will be the smallest, lightest and most fuel efficient Range Rover ever produced. Customers will have a choice of both a 4WD and a 2WD version (a first for Range Rover).

Phil Popham, managing director of Land Rover said: “Today is a very special occasion for Range Rover, not only are we celebrating 40 years of the brand, we are also demonstrating our exciting future by showing the all-new Range Rover Evoque. Range Rover is one of the most highly regarded and iconic vehicles in the history of motoring and has been a continuing success since we first introduced it in 1970. The all-new Range Rover Evoque, is an important step for the future continued success and growth of the brand. Customers can be confident that the new car will be premium, luxurious and just as special as the other Range Rover models. Its sporting looks and unique qualities will open the brand to a new group of customers who may not have considered a Range Rover product before”

The all-new Range Rover Evoque will make its global public debut at the Paris Motor Show at the end of September and will go on sale from next summer.

  1. Shades of “Range Rover Vogue” in that name?. Who knows? I guess the name will grow on me?

    I like the styling, a lot, but what’s with those strange rectanglular ‘notches’ in the centre of the wheel arches? On the picture above they appear at the top of the stiffening lip of the arch, but on the picture a couple of posts below they seem to be cut out of the bottom of the lip. Trick of the light maybe but are they a ‘feature’ and is it too late to get rid of them?

    Please say it’s not…..

    Oh and it’ll need 4 doors if they seriously expect it to compete with the RAV4, CRV, Tiguan, Tucson, CX7 etc. etc.
