Since the introduction of the LRX Concept at the Detroit Motor Show in 2008, the distinctive shape of the Range Rover Evoque has been a stand out in the SUV market, with that trend continuing into 2016.The Evoque has been one of Land Rover’s many success stories, thanks to its record-breaking production and sales figures, and after just over four years it has surpassed 500,000 units, the fastest of any Land Rover ever.
Having broken the record for being quickest to 100,000 units within its first year (a Land Rover first), the SUV produced at the Halewood plant near Liverpool had a special ceremony to pass the half million-unit mark.
One in every three Land Rovers sold worldwide is an Evoque, and to keep up with demand the factory works 24 hours a day, finishing a new vehicle every 80 seconds.
Following a design update in 2015, along with new powertrains and internal technology, the Evoque is also breaking new ground in 2016 with the introduction of the Evoque Convertible.
First shown off at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2015, it impressed critics, showing the adaptable and evolutionary nature of the Evoque’s individual and distinct design.
Thanks to winning the contract to produce the Evoque, the Halewood manufacturing plant had a £250m investment to improve the facilities, introduce new workers and increase production. In the four years since, the workforce has trebled in size and production has quadrupled.
