Evans has signed a three-year deal to host BBC’s hugely popular motoring show.
The show said in a statement on Tuesday that Evans had signed a three-year deal to front “an all new line-up”.
Clarkson's former co-presenters, Richard Hammond and James May, have also left Top Gear following Clarkson's departure.
I'm thrilled, Top Gear is my favourite programme of all time. Created by a host of brilliant minds who love cars and understand how to make the massively complicated come across as fun, devil-may-care and effortless.
When in fact, of course, it's anything but and that's the genius of Top Gear's global success.
I promise I will do everything I possibly can to respect what has gone on before and take the show forward.
