Land Rover unleashes Range Rover Evoque Ember Limited Edition to celebrate sales milestone

Article by Andrew Christian, on May 4, 2016

Land Rover is celebrating the sale of over 520,000 Range Rover Evoques with the launch of the new Ember Limited Edition as well as the introduction of improved technologies and options. As demanded by customers, the latest version of the Range Rover Evoque -- available in Coupe, Five-door and Convertible body styles -- now comes with greater connectivity with the addition of the next-generation InControl Touch Pro infotainment system.

This includes a 10.2-inch tablet-style pinch 'n' zoom touchscreen with streetview map options and a customizable home screen. This new InControl Touch Pro infotainment system optimizes in-car connectivity through offering quicker responses and more intuitive operation. This system – seen first on the Range Rover Evoque Convertible – will be offered as an option from 2017 model year on the Range Rover Evoque Coupe and Five-door.

Its 10.2-inch touchscreen features intuitive operation just like a smartphone through swipe, pan and pinch to zoom controls. Moreover, this touchscreen offers a 21:9 super-wide format with 1280x542 pixel resolution, representing an 80 percent increase over the standard eight-inch touchscreen found on the Evoque.

To celebrate its latest milestone, Land Rover is releasing the 'Ember' Limited Edition that builds on the elements of the Range Rover Evoque HSE Dynamic but with a more striking exterior and interior details wrapped in a red and black theme.

It features a body finished in Santorini Black and a roof in Firenze Red. This striking theme is boosted by complementing exterior design elements like the front and rear tow eye covers. According to Phil Simmons, Land Rover's Studio Director for Exterior Design Realisation, the goal was to give the Range Rover Evoque Ember Limited Edition a sporty feel by contrasting the intensity of the Firenze Red with Santorini Black.

This limited edition features the distinct 'EVOQUE' tailgate badging in black with a silver surround as well as Narvik Black 'RANGE ROVER' lettering on the bonnet. In addition, this limited edition comes with Black Pack elements like Satin Black 20-inch alloy wheels, Dynamic Narvik Black grille and Dynamic black exhaust finishers as well as darkened front and rear lights.

Inside, the Range Rover Evoque Ember Limited Edition features Ebony Black seats contrasted by Pimento Red stitch and complemented by black and red premium carpet mats as well as Gloss Black trim finishes. Customers could order the Range Rover Evoque Ember Limited Edition for a three-month period this summer.

On the other hand, Land Rover is introducing the Graphite Design Pack that should further enhance the exterior of Range Rover Evoque HSE Dynamic and Autobiography versions with extra elements like distinct 20-inch alloy wheels in Satin Technical Grey and Dynamic grille in Narvik Black with Satin Dorchester Grey Surround.

Its tow eye outer covers on the front and rear are also specified in Satin Dorchester Grey. HSE Dynamic models, meanwhile, have a black contrast roof, bonnet and tailgate lettering as well as Dynamic black exhaust finishers and darkened front and rear lights.

Meanwhile, the Autobiography flagship comes with black detailing on the bonnet louvres, door mirror caps and fog light surrounds as well as on its fender vents and tailgate finisher. Aside from these elements, there is a wide array of available exterior body colors – 18 overall – like Aruba, Farallon Black, Carpathian Grey and Silicon Silver premium metallic paint finishes.

The Range Rover Evoque is considered as one of the most desired and multi-awarded luxury compact SUV, receiving over 182 international awards since it was launched in 2011,

Top Selling Range Rover Evoque Updated With Even More Design And Technology Appeal

To celebrate the sale of over 520,000 Range Rover Evoques, Land Rover has introduced enhanced technology, increased customer choice and a distinctive Limited Edition.

Available in Coupe, Five-door and Convertible bodystyles, the Evoque is built at Jaguar Land Rover's Halewood plant in the UK, where a new vehicle is built every 80 seconds.

Having won over 182 international awards since its launch in 2011, the Evoque is widely regarded as the world's most desirable luxury compact SUV. To further enhance the global appeal of the sector defining vehicle, Land Rover is introducing the striking 'Ember' edition complete with a bold red and black theme adding an individual touch for customers wanting an even more distinctive design.

Responding to consumer demand for ever greater connectivity, the latest Range Rover Evoque now offers next-generation InControl Touch Pro infotainment. Market leading technology provides a 10.2-inch tablet-style pinch 'n' zoom touchscreen complete with streetview map options and a customisable home screen.

Ember Limited Edition

The red and black themed 'Ember' Limited Edition builds on the attributes of the Range Rover Evoque HSE Dynamic with striking exterior and interior details. A distinctive Firenze Red roof contrasts with the Santorini Black body colour and is complemented by matching exterior design elements, including the front and rear tow eye covers.

Phil Simmons, Land Rover's Studio Director for Exterior Design Realisation said: "We wanted to give the Range Rover Evoque Ember Limited Edition a sporty feel; contrasting the intensity of the Firenze Red with Santorini Black really shows off the Evoque's stand-out proportions."

The addition of unique 'EVOQUE' tailgate badging in black, with a silver surround, and Narvik Black 'RANGE ROVER' lettering on the bonnet gives the limited edition further definition.
Black Pack elements including Satin Black 20-inch alloy wheels, Dynamic black exhaust finishers, Dynamic Narvik Black grille and darkened front and rear lights give the Ember a more purposeful appearance.

The 'Ember' theme continues inside, with Ebony Black seats sporting a contrasting Pimento Red stitch, complemented by black and red premium carpet mats and Gloss Black trim finishes.
The Range Rover Evoque 'Ember' will be available to order for a three-month period this summer.

Intuitive technology

The new InControl Touch Pro infotainment system optimises in-car connectivity by providing faster responses and more intuitive operation. Introduced from launch on the Range Rover Evoque Convertible, this now becomes available as an option from 2017 model year on the Range Rover Evoque Coupe and Five-door. The enhanced set-up includes a 10.2-inch touchscreen with a customisable home screen to ensure customers' favourite apps are always at their fingertips.

The touchscreen behaves like a smartphone or tablet with swipe, pan and pinch to zoom controls and provides a clearer 21:9 super-wide format with 1280x542 pixel resolution - an 80 per cent increase over the Evoque's standard eight-inch touchscreen.

Graphite Design Pack

A new Graphite Design Pack also enhances the exterior of Range Rover Evoque HSE Dynamic and Autobiography derivatives with a host of subtle design changes. Unique 20-inch alloy wheels in Satin Technical Grey are complemented by the Dynamic grille in Narvik Black with a Satin Dorchester Grey Surround, while the tow eye outer covers front and rear sport the same grey tone. A black contrast roof, bonnet and tailgate lettering, darkened front and rear lights and Dynamic black exhaust finishers complete the look on HSE Dynamic models.

In addition, the flagship Autobiography model benefits from black detailing on the door mirror caps, bonnet louvres, foglight surrounds, fender vents and tailgate finisher to highlight Evoque's exterior design trademarks.

Customers will also be able to choose from a wider palette of exterior body colours than before. The addition of Aruba, Farallon Black, Carpathian Grey and Silicon Silver premium metallic paint finishes takes the total number of colour options to 18.
