Land Rover reveals Evoque convertible concept
Monday 27 February 2012
Land Rover has released the first pictures of a possible convertible version of the Range Rover Evoque.
The company is maintaining that the car is simply a concept intended to “explore the potential for the world's first premium convertible SUV” but the official photographs, as well as some unofficial shots circulated via Twitter, show a polished product that looks as though it could go on sale tomorrow. Members of the public will have their first chance to see the convertible Evoque at Land Rover's stand at the Geneva Motor Show, where it will be displayed alongside further iterations of the equally important DC100 concept, already seen at previous motor shows, which shows the company's latest thinking on a possible replacement for the rugged Defender model.
The open look suits the Evoque well, but so far none of the pictures show the concept car with a raised top. Ensuring that any production convertible Evoque has a suitably stylish roof-up silhouette will be essential to its chances of success.
So far, Land Rover hasn't given any indication of when any convertible Evoque might go on sale if the concept is well received but it can probably afford not to hurry as the existing fixed-head models are selling so well.
