The all-new Range Rover Evoque has entered its final phase of testing, with hundreds of prototype models dispatched around the globe for trial in the toughest climates and conditions.

 

Land Rover is making no secret of the operation. Its design team has fitted ten prototypes with funky camouflage wraps, to introduce the new car in 10 key cities worldwide. Ordinarily prototypes are disguised for discretion, but these ten are intended to be seen.

 

The funky camouflage imagery is actually a GPS mapping trail of ten key cities for Evoque, with each vehicle saying “Hello” to its city. It signals the eagerly awaited global launch of the new Evoque.

 

These vehicles represent London, New York, Sao Paulo, Paris, Milan, Madrid, Berlin, Sydney, Shanghai and Moscow and will all be spotted testing around the globe.

 

They are just a small proportion of the hundreds of pre-production cars that will be rigorously evaluated over millions of miles to ensure the new Range Rover Evoque surpasses the highest standards of quality and reliability when it goes on sale in summer 2011.
