Additional features include polymer and composite front fenders and tailgate, an aluminum hood, roof panels, front lower control arms and front/rear suspension knuckles, and a magnesium cross car beam.

As part of the comprehensive effort to minimize the car’s ecological impact, the Range Rover Evoque focuses on the use of more sustainable materials. Each vehicle uses approximately 35lbs (16kg)*** of recycled plastic material. Parts with recycled content include: headliner, center console, wheel arch liners, air cleaner, cooling fan and shroud, air ducting, side under trays, parcel shelf, engine cover and subwoofer box.

In addition, the metal interior trim on the center console and dashboard is produced from recycled aluminum. The trim fabric used on the headlining and pillars is produced from recycled polyester.

Carscoop scoops an interior shot of the 2013 Range Rover Test Mules #rangerover

We’ve been seeing these test vehicles for the upcoming 2013 Range Rover redesign.  But from what I have seen, these are the first ones with interior shots.  Not too much to see, lots of wires and testing specific hardware, but the interesting item, is the Range Rover Evoque style steering wheel.

Also, they’re confirming this version as a Diesel Hybrid, can’t wait to hear more!!
