LONDON -- Land Rover could add a luxury SUV below the compact-sized Evoque, the brand's design director said.
"Certainly, I think we can go smaller," Gerry McGovern told Automotive News Europe when asked about future plans for the premium Range Rover line. "In a world focusing on sustainability you could argue that smaller and lighter is the way to go."
Range Rover is not the only brand considering a subcompact premium SUV. Audi design boss Stefan Sielaff has floated the idea of a Q1 SUV, which would fit in below the compact-sized Q3. Only volume brands such as Fiat, Suzuki, Toyota offer subcompact-sized SUVs in Europe.
Since launching the Evoque last year, Land Rover has sold more than 90,000 of the three- and five-door SUVs, according to data from Land Rover owner Tata Motors.
