Jaguar Land Rover’s commitment to the UK car industry deepens today with the launch of the new Range Rover Evoque. Designed, engineered and made in Britain, the next generation of the compact luxury SUV makes its world debut in London following a £1bn investment to support its production.

The new vehicle is a technology revolution. Its compact footprint, at just 4.37m long, will make the new Range Rover Evoque the go-to luxury city SUV. An entirely new architecture delivers Range Rover refinement, with agile on-road handling and world class off-road capability.

The new Evoque joins the Range Rover family with a choice of petrol, diesel and hybrid electric engines, enabled by the all-new Premium Transverse Architecture. From 2020, every new Jaguar and Land Rover will have the option of electrification and, in a first for the compact luxury SUV segment, the Range Rover Evoque will be electrified with a 48 Volt mild hybrid system from launch. It will also be available with a line-up of efficient four cylinder diesel and petrol engines and, 12 months later, a three cylinder plug-in hybrid engine.
