Range Rover Evoque starts PR world tour

Published: 16 July 2010

Ten Range Rover Evoques are being dispatched around the world to cities such as London, New York, Milan, Madrid and Berlin for ‘testing’ by Land Rover engineers ahead of the global debut at the Paris motor show in autumn 2010.

In reality though, these 10 prototypes will be painted in bright colours to attract future customers. Doesn’t sound like testing to us; maybe testing our eyes…

What will the London Evoque look like? 

The London car is bright pink with the slogan ‘Hello London’ written on the side in bright white. Could this be a colour scheme chosen by Victoria Beckham, design advisor to Range Rover?

Meanwhile the Moscow Evoque is bright orange and says ‘Hello Moscow’ in both English and Russian.

Remind me about the Evoque…

The Evoque is the production iteration of the 2007 LRX concept car and will be powered by a choice of 2.0 and 2.2-litre Ford/PSA diesel engines. Being the first front-drive Land Rover ever, it’s also promising under 130g/km of C02.

Sounds good. When is it on sale?

The Evoque will be on sale in summer 2011 – and these wacky paint schemes won’t figure on production cars.

If you do see any of the 10 cars around the world, be sure to email us your spy photos. Happy hunting – although it shouldn’t be too hard to spot the car!
