Just recently, Land Rover has axed the three-door Range Rover Evoque from its line-up due to slow sales.

According to sources, as much as 95 percent of sales were of the five-door version. This is due to the current industry's inclination towards the practicality offered by five-door cars. 

In a statement, a Land Rover spokesman revealed that from the 2019 model year, the British automaker has rationalized Evoque's bodystyle offering to focus on the five-door model and convertible, which account for the majority of sales.

In the past 18 months, the three-door and coupe variants of the Audi A3 and Volkswagen Scirocco have also been axed, while a number of models have been converted to five-door for their new generation. recently, Jaguar also walked the same path by cutting the XE S and XF S from its line-up.

There are no official details on whether the second-generation of the Evoque will be offered as a three-door. However, despite the pre-eminence of the five-door Evoque, reports say that a second-generation convertible version will possibly follow the five-door's debut in 2020.
