The Land Rover Range Rover Evoque is selling well here in the States. So well, in fact, that the compact utility is barely sticking on showroom lots. Dealers are reportedly struggling to get an Evoque in the hands of every customer that wants the Beckham-inspired luxury 'ute. They need more supply to meet the demands of potential customers, lest Land Rover lose said customer to a competitor.

High demand is a good problem to have, but Land Rover would prefer to meet demand and reap the financial benefits. Fully aware of the supply issues both in the U.S. as well as globally, the British automaker is reportedly set to boost production of the Evoque by 25 percent.

Currently, 750 units a month are produced at Land Rover's Halewood, England facility, but that number is set to jump to 1,000 vehicles a month, says Automotive News. According to Land Rover North America CEO Andy Gross, this will come as a major relieve for dealers, pointing out that "It's been tough on the network."

While Land Rover sold just 2,244 Evoque models last year as production ramped up, it moved 4,355 in just the first six months of 2012. Even with the big daddy Range Rover selling out the last year before its redesign and a short supply of Evoques, Land Rover sales are up an impressive 21 percent. With a new Range Rover set to debut in early 2013 and Evoque capacity on the rise, it looks like Land Rover should enjoy similar growth in the year to come.

      Boosting output from 750 to 1,000 per month is a 33% increase, not 25% as stated in the article.

        I love Autoblog, but why do they try to make a mistake in every article they publish? Maybe the bigger fool is me not noticing that glaring grade school math error until you pointed it out -__-

      I always thought it was an attractive car, but I thought there was consensus that only women and homosexuals drove these cars now, so it'd be like wearing a purse or diamond stud in your right ear. Might give people the wrong idea.

        But then, your profile name is "Ducman69," giving all of us the wrong -- I hope -- idea.

        If they took the "D" in your name and replaced it with an "F" (to represent the fail), they would have a more accurate representation of the man who shared such an opinion.

      Would all the expert posters who predicted that this was going to be a flop for Jaguar - Land Rover when Autoblog first announced the Evoque, please raise their hands?

      No, AutoBlog seems to have made the mistake of thinking North America = The World. What actually happened was that Andy Goss, CEO of Jaguar Land Rover *North America*, said the *United States* will get about 1,000 Evoques a month starting in September, up from about 750 currently. Land Rover manufacture more than 750 evoques a month: they sold 57000 in 2011 (and that wasn't a complete year of sales).

      Given the typical buyer, I think this car makes a lot more sense for most urban dwellers than a full size Range Rover Sport. Whether or not you're a Land Rover fan, the fact is most LR's in the U.S. never see any off-road terrain on their way to the grocery store, then St@rbuck, and then back home. Now those buyers can have the LR style and interior while getting way better gas mileage. It's also easier to drive and park for most buyers. The price of entry is also far less than their full size SUV's. That Land Rover can barely keep up with production says they made the right call on this one.

      I think it's about as ugly as a mud fence. And what's with this trend of ending the body at the rear wheels. Make it 2 feet longer and you might even be able to carry your lunch and thermos. I do not like these matchbox sized cars. It reminds me of a SAAB from back in the 70s and 80s, and they were butt ugly. Nowthen a Chevy Monte Carlo 1970-72 was very pleasing to the eye.

      I woudn't mind these if they didn't have have that ridiculously high beltline. The lack of visibility is getting control.

      Wonder what the take rate on the 2 door is? So much cooler than the 4 door.
