The new Range Rover Evoque will be revealed to the world at 19:45 GMT on 22 November and Land Rover is preparing us for its debut by installing a series of ‘teaser’ wireframe artworks in London.
The creators of the new 2019 Range Rover Evoque have also crafted the full-size wireframes, and Land Rover chief designer Gerry McGovern admits they’ve been built specifically to preview what the new premium SUV will look like.
Which is? That the second-generation Evoque will evolve the look of today’s ground-breaking model, introducing the modernist evolution first seen in the World Car Design of the Year-winning Range Rover Velar.
You don’t mess around with an iconic design, it seems. (Also see: Porsche 911.)
Land Rover points out the “distinctive fast roofline and rising waistline” of the new car, that suggest the coupe cues of today’s model will continue.
Also expect simpler lines than today’s model, following McGovern’s reductionist mantra that reduces the number of lines and creases on a vehicle.
Land Rover has sold more than 750,000 current Evoque since its launch in 2010, and it’s widely credited as the car that set the company on a long period of success. The awards cupboard for the Evoque, Land Rover has revealed, contains more than 225 trophies.
The new model will be revealed in London on the evening of 22 November, with the feed to be streamed onto both Facebook and YouTube. And if you’re really keen to buy a new Evoque, it will be worth tuning in, adds Land Rover – ordering will open at the same time as its world debut…
