The good folks at Range Rover released the official statement that the brand new 2012 Range Rover Evoque will have the starting price of $44,000 for the five door vehicle, and $45,000 for the coupe. Both prices include destination and delivery.

Range Rover states that the Evoque achieves 28 MPG EPA highway and 19 MPG EPA city. This excellent fuel economy is the result of new efficiency technologies, lightweight materials, and environmentally conscious design.

This vehicle will be sold in 160 countries worldwide with North American deliveries beginning in Fall 2011.

I like the Evoque more than the Range Rover Sport, but I know that the specs don't compare. If I could create an Evoque to have the power that the Sport has, then we can talk... But the odds of that would be slim to none.
