Geneva: Range Rover Evoque Convertible Concept Revealed image

Land Rover has recently unveiled the Range Rover Evoque Convertible Concept at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.

The Range Rover Evoque was designed by Gerry McGovern, the Land Rover design director, and his team, to show “what’s possible” for Land Rover, more like a design and engineering study.

“The Evoque lends itself beautifully to a convertible,” Gerry McGovern, Land Rover’s head of design, said. “A decision to approve such a vehicle for full-scale production would hinge partly on public reaction to the concept at auto shows like this one.”

The concept is not the company’s first experiment with a convertible version of a sport utility vehicle. Last year Land Rover showed the DC100 Sport concept, on what a new Defender model might look like. Besides the retractable soft-top roof and pop-up roll bars for protection, the Evoque Convertible also features park assist, terrain response, surround cameras, Meridian audio system and infotainment with 8-inch dual view touch screen.
