Located near Liverpool, Halewood opened in 2001, and has manufactured the Land Rover Freelander 2 and Range Rover Evoque SUVs, as well as Jaguar's X-Type sedan.
The millionth Halewood vehicle was a Range Rover Evoque, which was fitting, as the wildly-popular prestige compact SUV has been responsible for 220,000 units out of Halewood since production started in July, 2011.
The milestone Evoque 'Dynamic' variant was finished in a unique colour combination of Fuji-White, and with ebony-black alloy wheels and distinctive and unique Firenze-Red contrast roof, matching Firenze-Red mirror scalps and red/black sports seats and interior door panels. The one-off will be donated to Cancer Research UK.
Land Rover said that, thanks to the success of the Evoque and growing demand for the Freelander 2, the production milestone was achieved earlier than predicted. Halewood has been running a 24-hour working day for the past 12 months to meet demand.
