Jaguar Land Rover (JLR)’s Halewood production plant in the UK has built 600,000 units of the Evoque in the six years since the model’s introduction.

The company says demand is still increasing for the luxury compact SUV that debuted in 2011.

JLR also says that in March sales reached an all-time high for a single month, both globally and in the UK. The UK registered a record 6,781 Evoques being sold in March 2017 and almost 18,000 Evoques were sold globally.

To celebrate six years of success, JLR has announced a new Landmark edition. The Evoque Landmark is available in a vibrant moraine blue – inspired by the turquoise lakes of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Priced from GBP39,000 (US$50,578), the Landmark edition will make its global debut at the Royal Windsor Horse Show on 10 May, when orders will open.

Jeremy Hicks, managing director, JLR UK said: “The Evoque has been an indisputable success. It’s our biggest selling model in the UK and continues to thrive six years after launch; it’s a fantastic achievement and worthy of celebration. The Landmark edition has new dynamic detailing and a distinctive aesthetic, which takes its design credentials to an even higher level – it looks fantastic and we know customers will love it.”

The Evoque Landmark edition is also available in ‘yulong white’ and ‘corris grey’. It has a dynamic body kit and grey exterior design details, including a fixed panoramic roof in carpathian grey, 19-inch gloss dark grey alloy wheels and graphite atlas grille, bonnet, fender vent and tailgate lettering. Dark grey accents continue on the interior in the form of brushed satin centre console trim finishers surrounded by grained ebony leather seats with contrasting light lunar stitching and a perforated mid-section. The Landmark edition also has keyless entry and powered gesture tailgate convenience features as standard.

An Evoque rolls off the Halewood production line every 170 seconds, with Evoque Convertible also being produced in Halewood since 2016. Most are for export to one of 130 markets, with additional manufacturing in China and Brazil to meet local market demand.

Some 80% of UK-built Evoque models are exported and JLR says it is one of UK’s largest exporters and generates around 80% of its revenue from overseas sales.

The Landmark edition includes an optional 10-inch InControl Touch Pro system featuring apps such as Spotify and a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot. The optional Remote Premium app for a smartphone or smart watch lets owners check the fuel level, lock status, location and even pre-heat or cool the cabin. Those wanting an even more enhanced Evoque infotainment experience can opt for touch pro services, which offer real-time traffic mapping, satellite and street level views and a Live Apps sidebar with weather, news headlines, a flight tracker etc.
