2012 Range Rover Evoque Tailgate Badge

Land Rover better expedite the production of a Range Rover Grand Evoque, because the company will need the extra interior room to haul around all the awards the original 2012 Evoque has been snapping up. To date, the Evoque has tallied up 53 awards from around the globe. Awards have come from China, the Czech Republic, the United States, South Africa, India, Brazil, the United Kingdom, Germany, Austria, and elsewhere. As if that’s not enough, the Evoque has been named a North American Truck of the Year finalist and a contender for What Car?’s Car of the Year in the SUV category along with the Land Rover Discovery 4 and a few competitors. 

The two most recent North American awards for the Evoque come from Canada’s Auto123.com, which named the Evoque its ‘Best Luxury Compact Utility.’ The other comes from Jason H. Harper at Bloomberg News, where he named the Evoque one of his ‘Best Drives of 2011.’

40,000+ Range Rover Evoque Orders

In a recent press release, Land Rover Global Brand Director, John Edwards, revealed the company has “received in excess of 40,000 orders for [the] Evoque” worldwide, with many of these new owners never having owned a Land Rover product in the past. As we have mentioned before, the Evoque is also acting as a halo vehicle, bringing a lot of positive attention to the Land Rover and Range Rover brands in general.
