rr_hero_hr_6795[1]London, England – The first official photos of the all-new compact Range Rover Evoque have been released, following an exclusive preview in London for guests attending a 40th birthday celebration of the brand.

The new model will launch in the summer of 2011 and will be the smallest, lightest and most fuel-efficient Range Rover ever produced. Customers will have a choice of two- or four-wheel drive.

The Evoque will be built in Halewood, England, and will be sold in over 160 countries. It is based on the LRX concept car that was introduced in 2008, and will make its global public debut at the Paris Motor Show in September 2010.
