Jaguar Land Rover
The new Evoque and I-PACE were the main stars at the Chicago Auto Show, with the Range Rover making its dynamic debut in the US, while the all-electric Jaguar added two more accolades to its burgeoning collection.
Hot from its global reveal in London last November, the
second generation Evoque headed to the US for its next major appearance, with visitors
able to experience the new small Range Rover on an indoor off-road course
inside the McCormick Place Convention Center.
Brother and sister R&B artists, Solo and Jaime Woods entertained
the crowd with a live set, while it was also announced customers who pre-order
their new Range Rover Evoque will also get a pair of Evoque inspired headphones
from Master & Dynamic as an added bonus.
Land Rover North America also offered the audience a sneak peak
at a Chicago-inspired film, featuring local photographer Trashland, who will be
a part of the team’s marketing campaign in the future.
While the new Evoque was catching the visitors attention,
Jaguar’s I-PACE was picking up two more awards in Chicago – this time from US
automotive TV show – Motorweek.
The all-electric SUV was named Drivers’ Choice Best Luxury
Utility Vehicle, following in the footsteps of last year’s winner the Range
Rover Velar, and MotorWeek’s 2019 Best Car of the Year.
The show’s creator John Davis commented that the I-PACE had
bettered their expectations of what an electric vehicle should be.
“Jaguar has managed to engineer an electric vehicle whose
creature comfort quotient is high, but with all the advantages and technology
we’ve come to expect from the new age of electrified models,” he added.
“As a total package, the I-PACE not only is a standout
luxury utility, it is a clear winner among all new passenger vehicles.”
Speaking at the Chicago Auto Show, Kim McCullough, Vice
President of Marketing for Jaguar Land Rover North America said: “It’s a great
honour to have the Jaguar I-PACE named 2019 Drivers’ Choice Award for Best
Luxury Utility vehicle and Best of the Year by MotorWeek.
“With the I-PACE, Jaguar’s design and engineering
teams created a world-class SUV that builds upon the brand’s amazing history
for innovation, design and performance.”
