The Range Rover Evoque went on sale in the U.S. on October 3rd after a year-long marketing campaign that made the Evoque one of the most anticipated vehicles of the 2012 model year. Given the significant build-up of the Evoque by Land Rover itself and the automotive press, we were a little surprised that the all-new Evoque did not eclipse the Range Rover Sport as the best-selling Range Rover model during its introductory months.
One of the latest Range Rover body kits comes from German tuner Hamann. In addition to the body kit itself, Hamann is also offering a tuned exhaust system and an engine computer upgrade that takes the supercharged 5.0-liter V8 from 510-horsepower up to 530. Only a handful of interior options were pictured, but customers will be offered wood, Alcantara, carbon, leather, and aluminum interior trim details.
Not only has the 2012 Range Rover Evoque won more awards than we can keep track of, but just recently it received environmental certification from the Vehicle Certification Agency (VCA). The VCA conducted a 'cradle-to-grave' life cycle assessment of the Evoque that analyzed the Evoque's overall environmental impact. As you may know, Land Rover was very committed to making the Range Rover Evoque the most environmentally sustainable Land Rover to date.
In addition to the numerous launch events, Land Rover commissioned a 32 minute five-part film to help promote the 2012 Range Rover Evoque. The film was directed by Ali F. Mostafa and was designed to help launch the Evoque in the Middle East. Classified The Series will be your kind of thing if you like your long format commercials to have a flair for intrigue, a good amount of action, a few car chases, and a bit of humor.
