LAND ROVER will wait until the Los Angeles motor show in November to present the five-door version of its all-new Range Rover Evoque, with managing director Phil Popham using this week’s Paris motor show to confirm production of the model and to issue the first official photograph of it.

There were some suggestions that Land Rover would unveil the five-door Evoque this week after pictures with a Paris motor show background – believed to have been taken at a pre-show dealer event – leaked on to the internet before this week’s French auto extravaganza.

Both models will be part of the Australian launch line-up in the third quarter of 2011, forming a range that as previously reported will include both two-wheel drive and 4WD versions and petrol and diesel engines, including the same Ford-sourced 2.0-litre EcoBoost engine that will power the Australian-built Ford Falcon from next year.

The Evoque will also receive a 2.2-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine, to be available in 110kW and 140kW tunes, with idle-stop technology on variants fitted with a six-speed manual transmission.

The other gearbox on offer across the range will be a six-speed automatic.
