Default New SUV to slide in between the Evoque and Range Rover Sport?

The Evoque gave rise to a new design language for Range Rover’s model line-up. The luxury SUV currently enjoys its popularity and recently entered local production in India. The Evoque sits below the Range Rover Sport in the brand's hierarchy and if a recent report is to be believed, the gap between the two SUVs will be filled in by a new model.

The SUV in question is expected to be based on a modified Evoque platform and is said to be under consideration for buyers who want something larger than the Evoque, but not something as big as the Range Rover Sport. Land Rover design director and chief creative officer - Gerry McGovern, had stated that the brand is looking to develop more “white space” vehicles i.e. SUVs to fill in the gaps that exist in the model range. The gap between the Range Rover Sport and Evoque in the UK for example, is large enough for a new model, given how the latter's starting price is around half that of the RR Sport (£61,950 vs £30,200 i.e. a gap of £31,750 or approximately INR 30 Lakh). The gap in the Indian market is even larger, since the locally assembled Evoque is priced at nearly Rs. 49 Lakh while the fully imported Range Rover Sport costs around Rs. 1.16 Crore.

The new SUV is expected to be revealed no earlier than 2018. The arrival of the new model will play a vital role in making JLR’s model line up more versatile and thereby help the British automaker offer a wider range for customers to choose from.

Evoque is popular in other markets but not in India, it entered local production but for reasons other than its popularity in Indian market

The one on the left is Range Rover Sport and the one on the right is Range Rover Evoque. The soon to be launched Discovery Sport is not related to this news, it will be positioned lower and most probably as replacement for Freelander.

This news will possibly be true

As previously LR Discovery 4 (BHPian madmonkey's ride) was the one which was positioned in between Evoque & RR Sport.

Though there was a facelift offered in mid 2014, i see this will be replaced with a new model just the way Freelander 2 was.

Lets wait & watch whether it will be an LR or an RR.

A recent report states that it will share its DNA with the upcoming Jaguar F-Pace, while offering a larger wheelbase and the option of 7 seats. According to the report by Autocar UK, the prices of the new SUV could range from £40,000-£65,000 (INR 36.44 Lakh-59.22 Lakh approx), filling up the gap between the RR Sport and Evoque. Nicknamed the “Evoque Plus”, the new SUV could even spawn a fully electric variant, making it Range Rover’s first EV. The fully electric variant will most likely be placed as a rival to the long delayed Tesla Model X.
