Range Rover Evoque Convertible Concept unveiled ahead of Geneva debut image

Land Rover has recently unveiled the Range Rover Evoque Convertible concept, ahead of its official debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show next month.

Even if the Range Rover Evoque Convertible Concept wasn’t announced for the 2012 Geneva Motor Show next month on the official webpage of the Swiss event, it seems that Land Rover is trying to get some extra attention by revealing what will most likely be a future model, a drop-top Range Rover Evoque, even if the company is saying that the model will “explore the potential for the world’s first premium convertible SUV”, and a decision on whether the crossover will get the green light for production will be take four to six weeks after the Geneva Motor Show.

The company’s engineers are saying that the Range Rover Evoque is 75 kg heavier than the standard version and the model can come in either two- or four-wheel drive layout. The model has been developed by Gerry McGovern, the Land Rover design director, and his team, and the official is saying that the Range Rover Evoque Convertible Concept is unique, with a high potential of becoming desirable.

“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” , said Gerry McGovern.

The Range Rover Evoque Convertible Concept will come with a fully retractable roof system and a roll-over protection, along with features like the surround cameras, park assist, terrain respornse, infotainment with 8-inch dual view touch screen and Meridian audio system, while sitting on 21-inch Titan silver wheels. More details on the model will be announced at the Geneva Motor Show.
