Range Rover Evoque Convertible sells quickly and quietly
The only thing ‘quiet’ about the recent sales figures for the new Range Rover Evoque Convertible is its interior cabin’s acoustic insulation, which the manufacturer promised delivers comfort for passengers on a par with its five-door sibling.
But in terms of actual sales, the new model has already staked its claim as a key element in the Range Rover line-up and is now being predicted to remain a core model for the coming years.
In August 2016, sales were up by 26% year-on-year at Jaguar Land Rover, with just under 37,000 vehicles shipped – including a 9% increase in Land Rover sales to over 26,000 and an impressive 104% increase to just under 11,000 Jaguar-branded models.
Andy Goss, Jaguar Land Rover group sales operations director, said: “We continue to grow our sales, with impressive performances across both of our brands.
“The Evoque Convertible has performed well in its first few months of sales and will play a key role in continuing Range Rover’s 45-year success story.”
Evoque has been a growth brand for Jaguar Land Rover throughout 2016, with over 6,000 models shipped back in March, representing a 9% annual increase in sales.
UK managing director Jeremy Hicks praised the “all-conquering” Evoque family at the time – an accolade that remains well deserved, based on these newest figures.
