The British manufacturer will soon introduce a new generation crossover and details about it are beginning to appear.
Jaguar Land Rover plans to introduce the Range Rover Evoque of the second generation in the autumn of this year and has already announced the “narrowing” of the family. After a change of generations, the compact cross will lose the three-door version, the share of which was less than 5% in the total sales of the model. True, the convertible has more modest sales, but its manufacturer still retains.
If you look at the debuts of new products in recent years, you can see that three-door SUV is now definitely not in a trend. From the three-door body after the generation change, a number of compact hatch cars refused: Volkswagen Polo, Kia Ceed, Seat Ibiza, Opel Astra and others. Evoque did not have any competitors at all, but apparently it was not needed by anyone in the three-door version.
Sales of the three-door Range Rover Evoque in a number of countries were discontinued in 2017.
Unlike its predecessor, the new Evoque immediately debuts a five-door, although, officially, the company has not yet announced the rejection of the three-door SUV. A spokesman for Land Rover told Autocar: “Since 2019, model year, Land Rover has” streamlined “the Range Rover Evoque range, focusing on the five-door model and the convertible, which accounts for the majority of sales.”
