Land Rover Launches Tri-Range Range Rover Evoque

Land Rover Launches Tri-Range Range Rover Evoque

May 21, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

The British automaker began testing the updated crossover Range Rover Evoque with seven seats (three rows of seats).

Back in January of this year, it was argued that huge changes would appear in the engine range of the new Evoque. Judging by the new photos from testing the prototype of the new product, Land Rover plans to introduce a seven-seater version of the Evoque – the captured test car received a longer body, the rear windows and roof are pushed back to accommodate the third row.

Of course, the longer body of this Evoque prototype is simply the consequences of increasing the wheelbase, which is necessary in order to free up space for two more rear passengers.

It is unclear whether the seven-seater Range Rover Evoque will enter the US and the European market, but given the current trend, China and other Asian markets, as well as Russia, will be suitable for the sale of a three-row Evoque. As we all know, the Chinese market “prefers” larger and longer cars, which is why car manufacturers are trying to adapt to the requirements to meet the needs of Chinese car enthusiasts.

 In addition to the longer body, the design elements of the Evoque seem to have remained unchanged. In addition to the appearance of a version of the model with a longer wheelbase, the crossover will receive a plug-in hybrid performance PHEV – such a car will receive the designation P300e.

 The basis for the plug-in hybrid unit will be a 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine rated for 197 horsepower, as well as an 107-hp electric motor mounted on the rear axle with a lithium battery rated at 15 kW / h. It is claimed that the Evoque P300e will be able to drive 66 kilometers in fully electric mode.
