Range Rover Evoque Wired
Today the new Range Rover Evoque is being introduced in London but if you live in the U.S., you’re undoubtedly too busy with turkey, football and napping, undoubtedly in that order, and so have little, if any interest, in taking a deep dive into anything other than another serving of stuffing.
The Land Rover Design team that came up with the new Evoque created 1:1-scale wire forms of the luxury compact SUV. These models were then setup in London, in Kensington and Chelsea, earlier this week as something of a tease.
According to Gerry McGovern, Land Rover Chief Design Officer, “The wire forms have been created to preview the new Evoque—which is the embodiment of Range Rover’s modernist design approach.”
The Evoque debuted in 2010 and since that time more than 772,000 of the SUVs have been sold globally.
