Gaydon, England – Land Rover will unveil a convertible concept version of the Evoque at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. The company said that the Evoque Convertible Concept will “explore the potential for the world’s first premium convertible SUV.”
The concept is being shown to gauge reaction and to assess the potential for a possible product. The company said that there are no production plans confirmed.
“The Evoque lends itself beautifully to the idea of a convertible,” said Gerry McGovern, Land Rover Design Director. “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.”
Based on the Evoque Coupe, the concept uses a fully retractable soft top and drop-down tailgate and four-passenger seating.
