Range Rover Evoque is the brand's most fuel efficient model to date and will arrive in Canadian showrooms in Fall 2011 for a competitive MSRP of $46,995*

Land Rover Canada revealed today that the lightest and most fuel efficient Range Rover ever, the all-new 2012 Range Rover Evoque will have a starting price of $46,995* for the five-door, and $52,595* for the coupe.

The Range Rover Evoque offers an extensive range of personalization, including Pure, Prestige and Dynamic trim levels and innovative Range Rover technologies, that include an 8-inch (203mm) touch-screen display and Surround Camera System and an extensive list of comfort and convenience options such as rich leathers and wood trims, a powerful 825W Meridian - 17 speaker surround sound system, rear seat entertainment package, powered tailgate and Adaptive Dynamics with MagneRide™, all in-keeping with the Range Rover style, comfort and technology at competitive pricing.

"The Range Rover Evoque will revolutionize the way people see our brand," said Lindsay Duffield, President of Jaguar Land Rover Canada. "Its classic Range Rover design cues, combined with its smaller size and serious approach to sustainability, will attract a new generation of customers who may have never considered an SUV before."

With a fuel economy of 7.1 L/100 km** highway and 10.7 L/100 km** city, the Range Rover Evoque sends a powerful message that the company is serious about sustainability and is determined to deliver vehicles that are both relevant and highly desirable. The Range Rover Evoque addresses the growing consumer need for more environmentally friendly vehicles. This excellent fuel economy is the result of new efficiency technologies, lightweight materials, and environmentally conscious design.

Weight saving was a primary objective in the development of the Range Rover Evoque, and engineers have applied a range of advanced lightweight materials to make this the lightest Range Rover model ever, with the five-door starting at just 1,680 kg (3,680lbs)***. Weight-saving technologies can be found throughout the bodyshell and chassis of the Range Rover Evoque, including a steel body structure with over 18%*** Boron/high strength steels in key load-bearing areas. Additional features include polymer and composite front fenders and tailgate, an aluminum hood, roof panels, front lower control arms and front/rear suspension knuckles, and magnesium cross car beam.

As part of the comprehensive effort to minimize the car's ecological impact, the Range Rover Evoque focuses on the use of more sustainable materials. Each vehicle uses approximately 16kg (35lbs)*** of recycled plastic material. Parts with recycled content include: headliner, center console, wheel arch liners, air cleaner, cooling fan and shroud, air ducting, side under trays, parcel shelf, engine cover and subwoofer box. In addition, the metal interior trim on the center console and dashboard is produced from recycled aluminum. The trim fabric used on the headlining and pillars is produced from recycled polyester.

Both coupe and five-door models of the Range Rover Evoque will be manufactured at Land Rover's multi award-winning Halewood plant in Merseyside, UK. The car will go on sale in more than 160 markets worldwide, with Canadian deliveries to 22 dealers across the country from Fall 2011.
