Land Rover to Increase Supply of Evoque to U.S. by Fall
Strong Demand Prompts 25 Percent Volume Increase
It seems like people just can't get enough of Motor Trend's 2012 SUV of the Year, the Range Rover Evoque. Sales of the compact luxury SUV have been so strong the company is planning to increase supply by 25 percent for fall 2012, bringing monthly deliveries to 1000 units, up from 750 a month currently, according to a report from Automotive News.
Land Rover reports that, for the first six months of 2012, sales have been up 21 percent for the brand compared with 2011, and that pace shows no signs of slowing. Dealers in many regions of the country have expressed frustration at the lack of supply of the hot-selling Evoque. Land Rover's 2011 U.S. sales totaled 38,099 vehicles.
Land Rover also indicated a redesigned Range Rover will debut in the first quarter of 2013 as a 2014 model. Based on recent spy shots, the new flagship is expected to feature some of the design cues of the Evoque.
