Towing the vehicle on four wheels

Range Rover Evoque. WARNINGS WARNINGS:

Ensure that the remote control remains docked whilst the vehicle is being towed. Removing the remote control will engage the steering lock, which will prevent the vehicle from steering correctly.

If the engine cannot be run whilst the vehicle is being towed, there will be no power assistance for the steering or brakes. This will result in greater effort being required to steer or slow the vehicle, and greatly increased stopping distances.

Range Rover Evoque. CAUTIONS CAUTIONS:

The vehicle should only be towed with four wheels on the ground. Towing with two wheels on the ground will result in serious damage to the transmission.

The vehicle should only be towed for a maximum of 80 km (50 miles), at a maximum speed of 80 km/h (50 mph).

Towing for a greater distance, or at a higher speed may result in serious damage to the transmission.

Range Rover Evoque. NOTES NOTE: The recommended recovery method is to raise all four wheels.
