Geneva Motor Show 2011: Range Rover Evoque takes top design prize
Wednesday 02 March 2011
The Range Rover Evoque has been named best production vehicle in the 2010 Car Design of the Year Awards.
The Evoque, Range Rover's smallest ever vehicle, was picked as the best-designed vehicle of last year by Car Design News in a ceremony at the Geneva Motor Show March 1.
It beat competition from the Alfa Romeo Giulietta and the Audi A7 which were also in the running for the prestigious annual award, judged by a panel of automotive designers and leading industry figures.
It is the first major international award for the Evoque which was launched at last October's Paris Motor Show to considerable acclaim, going on to win several smaller prizes from regional magazines in the Czech Republic, Portugal and the UK.
Car Design News editor Eric Gallina said that "the Evoque represents the best translation from concept car to production vehicle we have seen in recent times."
The best concept car award went to the sporty Pininfarina Duettottanta, which was unveiled nearly exactly a year ago at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show, beating competition from the Jaguar C-X75 and the Renault Dezir.
This year's show is open to the public March 3-13 in Geneva, Switzerland.
