Range Rover Evoque Convertible won’t get the green light image

Land Rover has no intentions of putting the Range Rover Evoque Convertible into production because the model will have a tiny niche market.

Even if the Range Rover Evoque Convertible has been officially presented to the public, in concept form, during the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, the model will not be put into production because only a very limited number of customers will be interested in it. Instead of making a convertible, Land Rover will focus on a new retractable panoramic sunroof. With the Range Rover Evoque Convertible remaining in concept form, the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet is currently the only drop-top available on the small SUV market.

As a quick reminder, the Range Rover Evoque Convertible was 75 kg heavier than the standard version. The model has been developed by the Land Rover design director, Gerry McGovern, and his team. The Range Rover Evoque was featuring a fully retractable roof system along with a roll-over protection, and the crossover will come with surround cameras, park assist, terrain response, infotainment with 8-inch dual view touch screen, Meridian audio system and 21-inch wheels.
