Range Rover Evoque Leads GREEN CAR PARADE

Most Fuel-Efficient Range Rover Ever Leads Local Environmental Celebration

"We were showcasing our 2012 Range Rover Evoque, the lightest, most fuel-efficient and most sustainable Range Rover ever," commented a Denver-based Land Rover staffer.

While it surprised plenty of people to see a Range Rover leading a Green Car Parade, it all made sense to them when they heard of its 28 mpg highway fuel economy, its 95 percent recyclability, and the 35 pounds of recycled material used in its construction.

This was the fifth year of the Colorado Green Car Parade. It’s held in the run-up to the Denver Auto Show to raise awareness for the environmentally-focused cars and SUVs that would be on display at the show.

It kicked off with a one-day, five-city tour that started in Denver, making stops in Boulder, Longmont, Loveland, Fort Collins and Greeley. At each place, the media and consumers came out to look at the vehicles and hear about their eco-friendly credentials.

Then the 18-or-so vehicles got to line up around the perimeter of the State Capitol building in Denver, before setting off on the parade through the downtown streets to the Colorado Convention Center.

A Firenze Red Range Rover Evoque Coupe lead the parade, and being Colorado, it was naturally fitted with a matching red mountain bike on the roof. Stickers added to the body highlighted the compact SUV’s 28mpg economy and 95 percent recyclability.

The event was great because it gave consumers the opportunity to learn about the Range Rover Evoque’s sustainability, explaining that around 1,000 recycled plastic bottles are used in each Evoque to make components like the center console, air cleaner, wheel arch liners, parcel shelf and engine cover.

It was also pointed out that there are 46 pounds of natural and renewable materials, such as leather, cotton, cardboard and rubber, in each Range Rover Evoque, and that the stylish Morzine trim fabric used for the headlining and roof pillars, is produced entirely from recycled plastic bottles and fibers.

What surprised most people was discovering that under the hood was a highly-efficient turbocharged four-cylinder, rather than a V-6 or V-8 engine.

Members of the Rocky Mountain Automotive Press voted the Range Rover Evoque their 2012 'New Vehicle of the Year' in their annual Vehicle of the Year awards. The vehicle won as it best represented Colorado and its outdoor lifestyle.  That in itself is surely worthy of a parade!
