Range Rover Evoque Convertible to be revealed at Geneva



Land Rover will unveil a Range Rover Evoque Convertible Concept at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.

This new concept builds on the global success of the Evoque and is being shown to gauge reaction and to assess the potential.

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 soft-top convertible concept is based on the Range Rover Evoque Coupe. It features a fully retractable premium roof system with a Roll Over Protection System [ROPS].

Inside, the concept includes Terrain Response, surround cameras, Park Assist and an 8-inch dual view touch screen and a sound system. The Evoque Convertible Concept features 21-inch Titan silver wheels and is finished in a new metallic Causeway Grey paint.

John Edwards, Land Rover global brand director said: "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 are no production plans confirmed.
