Range Rover Evoque Manufacturing

Land Rover has released new images of the 2012 Range Rover Evoque as it rolls down the assembly line at the Halewood manufacturing plant in Liverpool, England. Built in 1963 by Ford, the Halewood facility was commissioned to produced the Ford Anglia and later other Ford products such as the Escort and Orion. After Ford production ended at the facility, the company announced the plant would be used to produce the then-new Jaguar X-Type and later the Land Rover Freelander. While the X-Type has been phased out, two Land Rover products are in production at the plant: the Freelander 2/LR2 and the Evoque. 

Approximately 3,000 people are employed at the factory, which also produces complete knock-down (CKD) kits for assembly elsewhere (such as Pune, India). On March 13, 2012, it was announced the company plans to add 1,000 additional employees at the facility.

UPDATE 1/7/2012: We have added 24 additional Range Rover Evoque manufacturing photos in a new gallery that reveals more body-in-white photos, the paint shop, and final assembly.
