Whilst the British motoring industry seemingly teeters on the brink of Brexit, there is one success story which defying the odds and creating jobs.

Land Rover’s Evoque, which was originally launched in 2010 is ready to see the launch of its next generation in 2019 and after it was unveiled to an expectant public this week there was more than one concern for celebration.

JLR have already invested £1bn to support the latest round of production, covering research, development, design, advanced technology engineering and manufacturing - which will make for a new look, smaller luxury SUV ready to tackle the future of engine design, one which includes electrification.

The Range Rover Evoque has been a fundamental driver in Jaguar Land Rover’s global success,” said the company’s Chief Executive, Ralf Spieth. “Since it first rolled off the Halewood production line, we have exported 80 per cent of all we have made. Our commitment to UK production remains firm and the new Evoque benefits from a £1bn investment. With this, we are introducing new technology and Range Rover refinement into the luxury compact SUV segment that the original model created.”

JLR’s commitment to UK production ensures the future of some 4,000 workers at the company’s factory in Halewood, but with £4bn worth of supplier contracts created, the entire industry is benefitting.

With prices starting at £31,600 in the UK, order books are already filling up for the new Evoque, with deliveries in the UK starting early 2019.
