Most efficient Range Rover to debut at Paris
The Range Rover Evoque, ‘the smallest, lightest, most fuel-efficient Range Rover ever’, is to make its eagerly awaited public debut at the Paris Motor Show next week.
The cross-coupe offers sub-130g/km CO2 emissions and returns 58mpg on a combined cycle. Start-Stop technology, Electric Power-Assisted Steering (EPAS) and easy end of life recyclability further boost its green credentials.
Customers can choose between two 2.2-litre turbodiesel derivatives and a 2.0-litre petrol unit, outputting 147, 187 and 237bhp accordingly. The latter is the most powerful engine, reaching 60mph in 7.1 seconds.
No matter the engine, every Evoque will have the unrivalled Range Rover off- and on-road ability as well as a ‘polished driving experience.’
While the exterior stays true to the dramatic LRX concept, which drew worldwide acclaim for its ‘fresh’ look, the interior offers luxury and elegance in the form of the soft-touch leather and twin-needle stitching that finishes almost every surface of the cabin.
The Range Rover Evoque will be released in summer 2011, priced from £30,000.
