Range Rover Spied Testing Plug-In Hybrid Evoque

Land Rover has begun testing the second-generation Range Rover Evoque.

Spy photographers have caught a mule for the next Range Rover Evoque on camera and it appears the British automaker has already attached a new front end to the crossover. The heavy camouflage up front suggests they are testing how the new front end affects cooling. In addition, it appears the next-gen model will be wider, but the use of a mule likely means its wheelbase won’t change.

The next-generation Range Rover Evoque should ride on a new platform designed to take advantage of Jaguar Land Rover’s four-cylinder Ingenium engines. Most interesting is the high voltage sticker that is prominently placed on the rear, confirming this prototype is electrified and likely a plug-in hybrid variant.
