After leaked photos of the Range Rover Evoque were published online, Land Rover has issued a single official photo.
It’s not the biggest deal in the world but, for whatever reason, Land Rover had decided that they would keep the 5 door version of the Range Rover Evoque wrapped up for a while longer. They actually intended revealing it publicly for the first time at the Los Angeles Motor Show in November.
But then they took a 5 door Evoque off to Paris to show to the ‘Trade’. Not for public consumption, mind you, just a quick ‘This is coming soon’ moment. But the 5 door Evoque got papped and published (we plead guilty, M’Lod. At least to the publication bit).
So, although it probably wasn’t in the plan, Land Rover has issued an official photo of the Range Rover Evoque. We guess the rather terse press release that accompanied it says that Land Rover are a bit pissed off at having their LA parade rained on. The press release said:
Phil Popham, Managing Director, confirmed today at the Paris Motor Show that Land Rover will be producing a 5-door version of the Range Rover Evoque which will be revealed later this year.
That’s it. That’s the entire press release. No ‘The Evoque 5 door will be offered with the same range of engines…’, or ‘The practical 5 door Evoque offers…’.
Just ‘OK, here its is. If you must‘. We’re sure Land Rover will regain their composure soon enough.
