A smaller Land Rover SUV slotted below the Evoque might be launched in the years to come.

In an interview given to Automotive News Europe, Land Rover’s design director Gerry McGovern said that a smaller luxury SUV slotted below the compact-sized Evoque is a possibility, stating that “certainly, I think we can go smaller.” Asked about the British automaker’s future plans for the Range Rover lineup, he added that “in a world focusing on sustainability you could argue that smaller and lighter is the way to go.”

This probably won’t be the only subcompact premium SUV as Audi also plans on introducing the Q1 in the next few years.

As far as the Evoque is concerned, Land Rover said that they have managed to sell more than 90,000 units of the 3- and 5-door SUV, according to Tata Motors who owns LR. JATO Dynamics mentions that the first-half European sales of the Evoque consisted of 27,685 units, almost on par with the rest of the Land Rover lineup (29,891 units).
