Tata Motors acquired British auto company, Jaguar Land Rover recently made waves in the global auto market with the launch of its product, the Land Rover Evoque. Word on the street is that Land Rover is planning a larger Range Rover Evoque known so far as the Grand Evoque. The model is being considered due to the success of the current Evoque model, which recently won the 2011 Top Gear Car of the Year award and the 2012 SUV of the Year award by Motor Trend.
Land Rover has a goal of taking itself into new niches and a plan to launch no less than 40 new models over the next five years.
Insiders say that growing sales of the BMW X and Audi Q SUVs and crossovers have also encouraged Land Rover to broaden its line-up and develop a model that sits between the Evoque and the Range Rover Sport.
The model will most likely be built on the same LR-MS chassis as the existing Evoque, which was actually developed from the Ford EU-CD platform.
The Range Rover Grand Evoque is expected to launch sometime in 2015.
