Range Rover Evoque Convertible Concept to be unveiled at 2012 Geneva Motor Show

A convertible SUV, huh? Range Rover Evoque, the sexiest SUV from Land Rover will display their Range Rover Evoque Convertible Concept at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. This will mark the Range Rover Evoque Convertible Concept as world's first premium convertible SUV.

This Convertible Concept builds on the international success of the Evoque and aims to gauge reaction and to assess the potential of reality of the concept through its display at the motor show.
The concept has been developed by Land Rover Design Director, Gerry McGovern and his team. Commenting on the concept, McGovern said: "The Evoque lends itself beautifully to the idea of a convertible. This study is not a traditional convertible design execution - instead we have worked with the balance of the Evoque's lines to retain its distinctive shape and create something that is unique and, we believe, highly desirable."

The Evoque has been launched to worldwide media acclaim and to date has been honoured with over 90 international awards.

John Edwards, Land Rover Global Brand Director says: "The Evoque Convertible Concept is a new twist to the Evoque story and explores the potential to further extend the nameplate's appeal by giving existing customers more choice, whilst at the same time reaching out to a completely new customer base. We are excited to see the response to this concept as we assess the potential for building on the Evoque's exceptional success so far."

The Evoque Convertible Concept will be revealed at Geneva as a design and engineering study. There is no production plans confirmed.

  1. This pricey all-terrain Cabrio should be a hit among the well-heeled roadster aficionados across the world. Certainly McGovern’s concept is well-justified with its well-chiseled design and a monstrous motor under the hood to match its beasty looks. At least, it didn’t turn out be as awkward as the Nissan Murano CrossCabrio, phew! But my only gripe with drop-tops is its wind noise. Just after few good rides on my Ford convertible lately, things started to get dreadful with the wind buffeting and in-cabin turbulence. But I could rein-in the draft at the right time by mounting an additional BackBlade wind deflector. Now I have once again started relishing the top-down rides through the scenic and soothing country roads!
