Land Rover is planning on introducing a convertible version of the Range Rover Evoque by the end of this year.
The announcement hasn’t been made official just yet but according to a recent report, the model in question is expected to be introduced over the next few months and to go on sale by the end of 2015. The development of such a model isn’t taking anyone by surprise considering the fact that the company has already shown a concept version of it, a couple of years ago, at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.
The production version of the Range Rover Evoque Cabrio should not be that different than the concept because it will be coming with the same design, with a retractable fabric soft top and with probably some minor visual tweaks which will put more distance between it and the current variants already available for order.
The vehicle should also be getting a roll-over protection system too, which will be quite clever and will not activate during off-roading, but chances of Evoques leaving the tarmac are quite small. Rumor has it that the production model will be officially unveiled by the end of June, probably during the 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed. Besides the Range Rover Evoque Cabrio, the company is also planning on introducing a high performance variant, which will be wearing the SVR badges and will follow the footsteps of its larger brother, the Range Rover Sport SVR. More details on the subject are limited at this time.
