Whitley, UK, April 20 2016 – To celebrate the sale of over 520,000 Range Rover Evoques, Land Rover has introduced enhanced technology, increased customer choice and a distinctive Limited Edition.
The Evoque is built at Jaguar Land Rover’s Halewood plant in the UK, where a new vehicle is built every 80 seconds. Having won over 182 international awards since its launch in 2011, the Evoque is widely regarded as the world’s most desirable luxury compact SUV. To further enhance the global appeal of the sector defining vehicle, Land Rover is introducing the striking ‘Ember’ edition complete with a bold red and black theme adding an individual touch for customers wanting an even more distinctive design.
Responding to consumer demand for ever greater connectivity, the latest Range Rover Evoque now offers next-generation InControl Touch Pro infotainment. Market leading technology provides a 10.2-inch tablet-style pinch ‘n’ zoom touchscreen complete with a customisable home screen.
Ember Limited Edition
The red and black themed ‘Ember’ Limited Edition builds on the attributes of the Range Rover Evoque Td4 180 HSE Dynamic with striking exterior and interior details. A distinctive Firenze Red roof contrasts with the Santorini Black body colour and is complemented by matching exterior design elements, including the front and rear tow eye covers.
Phil Simmons, Land Rover’s Studio Director for Exterior Design Realisation said: “We wanted to give the Range Rover Evoque Ember Limited Edition a sporty feel; contrasting the intensity of the Firenze Red with Santorini Black really shows off the Evoque’s stand-out proportions.”
The addition of unique ‘EVOQUE’ tailgate badging in black, with a silver surround, and Narvik Black ‘RANGE ROVER’ lettering on the bonnet gives the limited edition further definition.
Black Pack elements including Satin Black 20-inch alloy wheels, Dynamic black exhaust finishers, Dynamic Narvik Black grille and darkened front and rear lights give the Ember a more purposeful appearance. Adaptive LED headlamps with LED signature lighting and automatic headlamp levelling and cornering lamps are also specified on the Ember addition.
The ‘Ember’ theme continues inside, with Ebony Black seats sporting a contrasting Pimento Red stitch including the extended leather pack which adds further Oxford leather to the fascia, complemented by black and red premium carpet mats and Gloss Black trim finishes.
The Range Rover Evoque ‘Ember’ will be available to order for a three-month period from June to August 2016.
The new InControl Touch Pro infotainment system optimises in-car connectivity by providing faster responses and more intuitive operation. Introduced from launch on the Range Rover Evoque Convertible, the enhanced set-up includes a 10.2-inch touchscreen with a customisable home screen to ensure customers’ favourite apps are always at their fingertips.
The touchscreen behaves like a smartphone or tablet with swipe, pan and pinch to zoom controls and provides a clearer 21:9 super-wide format with 1280×542 pixel resolution – an 80 per cent increase over the Evoque’s standard eight-inch touchscreen.
