Appealing Range Rover Evoque reduces carbon footprint

Land Rover has received certification from the Vehicle Certification Agency showing the new Range Rover Evoque is one of the most environmentally friendly vehicles on the planet. 

Land Rover has received certification from the VCA (Vehicle Certification Agency) for a recently completed 'cradle-to-grave' study which analyzes the environmental impact of its new Range Rover Evoque. The certification makes Land Rover one of a few auto manufacturers to have completed an environmental impact study on one of their vehicles. The Range Rover Evoque was studied for its impact on the environment through a lifetime of customer use, to the end of it’s useful life and disposal.

The VCA reports that the Range Rover Evoque is one of the most efficiently produced vehicles that Land Rover or any other carmaker manufactures. The processes that go into manufacturing the Evoque include the use of recycled materials, lightweight components and stop start technology.

Land Rover uses unique processes to build the Evoque

The popular new Evoque uses a unique paint manufacturing process that reduces paint consumption and solvent emissions. Additionally, the ventilation systems in body construction have been rationalized, giving a 25 percent reduction in electricity consumption. 

The Evoque also uses lightweight components like a tailgate that is lighter than the steel equivalent and is made with less components and therefore requires less energy to produce and improves the quality of build.
