The smallest Land Rover product ever – Evoque is making headlines in the international automotive markets. Buyers are mighty impressed with concept car looks and unbelievable off roading skills all stuffed in one stylish package.
In fact, the baby Range Rover is such a big hit in the international markets that the first year of production was completely sold out before the units were even manufactured.
However, one Range Rover Evoque was spotted testing in Pune. We assumed that the test mule was completing its ARAI testing and JLR would be looking forward to the Auto Expo launch in 2012. Turns out, the Land Rover India is looking at a much sooner launch than the Auto Expo.
Land Rover has updated its website with all the information of the Evoque signaling a November launch. The Evoque will be available in 2 body styles:
- A three door: Powered by a 2.0 L Si4 petrol engine with 240 PS and 340 Nm
- A five door: Powered by a 2.2 L SD4 diesel engine with 190 PS and 420 Nm
A six-speed automatic gearbox with paddle shifters and four-wheel-drive transmission is mandatory. The 5 door version somehow makes more practical sense because it has more space and it’s a diesel.
The 5 door version is further available in 3 variants – Pure, Prestige and Dynamic (ala Tata Aria). The 3 door version is only available in a Dynamic variant. The Evoque is loaded with cool technologies such as hill descent control, terrain response, start-stop technology and regenerative brake system.
Your Evoque can be ordered in 11 color options and the levels of customization are limitless. Don’t forget to go through the brochure to check out the customizations.
The website does not mention anything about the price. The Evoque will be imported into India in a CBU form so expect the price to reach close to 50 lakhs. However, considering the production for the first year is completely sold out, we wonder what the waiting period in India will be. But one thing for sure, the Evoque is bound to strike a chord with the Bollywood celebrities.
