Last week, Jaguar Land Rover revealed a redesigned 2020 Range Rover Evoque.
One of the most exciting new features is the innovative “ClearSight Rear View Mirror,” which is designed to double as a HD monitor for the rear camera. Aside from this, the new model retains many of the design sensibilities seen in the previous Evoque, but is slightly longer, providing more legroom.
Also of interest is the fact that the new Evoque is Jaguar Land Rover’s first “mild-hybrid” car. A 48-volt battery connected to the powertrain stores energy when the car is braking, and uses that energy to give the engine a 50 horsepower boost as the driver accelerates, making stopping-and-starting more efficient. The SUV also uses artificial intelligence to learn the driver’s preferences for audio and comfort, and is the first of Jaguar Land Rover’s vehicles to do so.
The new Evoque will have 296 horsepower, an Ingenium four-cylinder gas engine, nine-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel-drive. All the modern technological fittings such as the InControl Touch Pro Duo infotainment system, companion smartphone app, and USB slots, are present.
Pricing details will be released in February 2019.
