One of the most stylish and successful SUVs launched last year, Range Rover Evoque, completed a successful one year of its production after having delivered more than 80,000 units to its customers the world over.
With more than 80,000 units delivered and hundreds of advance orders yet to delivered, the Range Rover Evoque is turning to be British luxury marque’s one of the most successful models till date. As demand for the Evoque continues around the world, employees at JLR’s Halewood manufacturing plant are celebrating one year of production. Twelve months ago, when the first vehicle rolled off the production line, the Evoque had already generated an exceptional market response with more than 18,000 orders worldwide. This interest continues today with demand for the Evoque driving sales of almost 80,000 units in just nine months.
With more than 110 global awards under its belt, the Evoque has gained critical acclaim from customers and media alike. This early success for Evoque has had a significant positive impact on the Halewood facility. In just three years the workforce has trebled and the plant now employs more than 4,000 people. Not to mention, the turn-around came while Tata Motors came on board as the new owners.
Halewood Operations Director Richard Else says, “The Evoque is an incredibly exciting vehicle that continues to turn heads. Sales of the Evoque remain strong across all markets.”
The Evoque is designed, engineered and manufactured in the UK with more than 75 per cent of production exported to over 170 global markets, generating an estimated £2 billion in annual export value.
