Range Rover Evoque crossover for China is produced by local JV Chery Jaguar Land Rover. The model is quite common, worldwide. Chinese Ewoks are distinguished from the cars we know only by the features of the complete sets. But soon a specific Evoque L will be registered on the conveyor of the same joint venture. The length, width and height of the L-version are 4531, 1904, 1650 mm, the wheelbase is 2841 mm. The length and base here are 160 mm longer than that of a regular Ewok.
From this perspective, it is not very noticeable that the tailgate is longer than usual. The increase, even by the standards of the Chinese market, which adores long-wheelbase versions of both SUVs and sedans in a wide variety of classes, is significant.
There are no radical changes in the design of the Ewok L. Images from China’s Ministry of Industry show that many variations of wheels, radiator grilles and bumpers are being prepared. Overall, the car follows in the footsteps of the short wheelbase.
The current regular Evoque is on sale in China starting at 355,800 yuan ($ 54,500). It is equipped with a 2.0 Ingenium turbo four (249 hp, 365 Nm) with a moderate hybrid MHEV system, a nine-band “automatic” and all-wheel drive. This engine accelerates the SUV from zero to a hundred in eight seconds. The same motor with the same recoil is expected for the long wheelbase version. So the dynamics will suffer slightly due to the increased curb weight (from 1955 to 2010 kg). Leaked data says the Evoque L will hit the market with a five-seater saloon. But insiders say there will be a seven-seater performance later.

Does it make sense to lengthen the Ewok?
