Ebony perforated Ultrafabrics™ seating, with polyurethane textile inserts featuring a distinctive modern design, inspired by bespoke tailoring. The wool blends are 58 percent lighter than leather. This innovative textile is the subject of extensive in-house durability testing. To ensure it provides longevity and robustness, the materials go through 60,000 cycles of abrasion testing, the equivalent of 10 years of use. UV testing simulates three years’ exposure to harsh sunlight in just one month.

Connected technology
The Evoque features the latest generation Pivi Pro infotainment technology. Controlled via an elegant new 11.4-inch curved glass touchscreen, all major vehicle functions are incorporated into the display, which appears to float within the centre console. Controls for the climate, seating and audio volume are always visible via new sidebars, featuring multi-functional sliding controls on either side. These virtual buttons provide immediate access to frequently used items, including individual temperature controls for the front occupants, cameras, navigation and audio volume. At the beginning of every journey, drivers are presented with a Pre-Drive panel for fast access to commonly used features, such as window demisters and heated seats. Once on the move, it disappears to reveal the familiar three-panel home screen that can be customised.

Pivi Pro supports effortless smartphone connectivity with Wireless Apple CarPlay™7. Wireless Android Auto® is also supported, while Wireless Device Charging – from a new stowage area in the centre console – provides immediate fast charging. It features twin-embedded eSIM technology and cloud-based architecture, meaning it provides full access to a range of online apps, including Spotify and DDeezer.The Evoque offers one of the most sophisticated suites of camera technologies in its class with 3D Surround View, ClearSight Ground View and ClearSight Interior Rear View.

Superior refinement
The Evoque aims to provide the healthiest cabin environment possible, with one of the most sophisticated interior air quality technologies in its class. Cabin Air Purification Plus is available for the first time on Evoque and an enhancement on the previous system. Available as part of the optional Comfort Pack, or standard on Autobiography, it features PM2.5 Filtration and CO2 Management which monitors and controls CO2 levels inside the cabin.  It uses nanoeTM X technology to combat pathogens and help reduce odours, bacteria and allergens, while the Air Quality Index (AQI) app technology allows clients to monitor outside air quality at their location and their destination on screen.The new Pixel LED Headlights with Signature Daytime Running Lights (DRLs) come standard on Dynamic HSE and Autobiography. It features three times as many LEDs as the previous Matrix LED headlights. Each headlight features four-pixel modules, containing 67 precisely controlled LEDs. They accurately adapt to the road conditions ahead to provide the optimum forward beam.
Dynamic Bend Lighting uses speed and steering data to respond to the road ahead and illuminate dark corners and verges, while the high beam range can focus light almost half a kilometre in front, for optimum visibility. It can cast shadows around four oncoming objects and avoid dazzling, Adaptive Driving Beam automatically adapts to vehicle speed, casting a wide beam at low speeds and a more intense, longer beam above 70km/h.

Electrified performance
The P300e electric hybrid offers clients the best of all worlds, enabling Range Rover Evoque drivers to complete their average daily journeys* with zero tailpipe emissions, thanks to an electric-only range of up to 62km from its 14.9kWh battery. This powertrain combines an efficient three-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine with an 80kW electric motor, providing a total power output of 227kW, 0-100km/h in 6.4 seconds. Updated battery chemistry offers an improved real-world driving experience, with an expected real-world electric range of up to 48km.
