Earlier in November 2018, Land Rover revealed its new Evoque. And now a digital artist has rendered the Whitley-based automaker’s second-generation SUV in both base-spec form and as a bakkie.
For the former, X-Tomi Design added a black plastic front end, steel wheels (wrapped in high-profile rubber) and basic headlamps (rather than the slim Matrix LED items used in reality). Furthermore, the deployable flush door handles have been finished in black plastic to match the entry-level side-mirror caps.
Of course, there’s little chance (okay, no chance at all) Land Rover will ever create this so-called "poverty-spec" derivative. And the bakkie version pictured below? Well, this seems pretty unlikely, too (although never say never)…
The rendered pick-up features an extended wheelbase and a single-cab body configuration, as well as a tonneau cover and a cheeky spoiler. Interestingly, it runs on fairly large alloys and seems to ride quite close to the ground as well, although we guess it’d employ the new model’s all-wheel-drive system with “Terrain Response 2” and “Ground View” technology, which projects camera imagery onto the upper touchscreen to show the driver a 180-degree view under the front of the vehicle.
The actual new Evoque, of course, is scheduled to arrive in South Africa early in 2019, offered exclusively in five-door form.
