Land Rover and Victoria Beckham, the creative design director for the brand, will reveal the Range Rover Evoque Special Edition in Beijing on Sunday 22nd April.
The Range Rover Evoque was previewed on July 1, 2010 at Range Rover’s 40th anniversary celebration, with Land Rover’s design director calling the coupe a “bold evolution of Range Rover design.”
In a sign of the times, Land Rover has opted to shrink the model in every way, offering two and four wheel drive versions and promising a fuel consumption of under 130g per kilometer.
The pictures show a streamlined model that features a falling roof and rising waistline, creating a distinctive “sweep” for the wraparound glass that runs along the length of the vehicle.
It is based on Range Rover’s LRX concept, which was introduced in 2008 as a smaller, sportier alternative to the medium and large Range Rover models on the market, and is likely to compete for SUV-drivers affections with the Jeep Cherokee.
The car’s interior will be designed by Victoria Beckham, who said that she was “very excited” about her new appointment.
Here’s a little teaser video – but the final design won’t be revealed until the Beijing International Auto Show on April 22nd.
