Range Rover Evoque Convertible Production Likely

Response Positive, Support Within Company

Jul 15, 2013
Australian automotive site CarAdvice is reporting that there's support from Range Rover brand director John Edwards to bring the Range Rover Evoque convertible concept to production. Although the concept is seen as somewhat controversial and unnecessary to some, Edwards says the response from the public has been "80 percent positive" in the European and American markets. "We're very close to making a decision," he adds.
Convertible models are not heavily favored in China and some other developing markets due to air pollution and occupant security concerns, but remain a moderately popular niche in Europe and the U.S. Public reaction to the Evoque convertible has generally been more favorable than that of the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet, an awkwardly proportioned drop-top variation on the brand's midsize two-row crossover.

The Evoque has been a star player for Land Rover, helping the British SUV brand sell more than 300,000 total units worldwide in 2012. Before the Evoque convertible heads to showrooms, Edwards said to expect a long-wheelbase full-size Range Rover flagship and hybrid variant first. A redesigned LR2/Freelander with Evoque styling influences may also debut before we see a production version of the Evoque convertible. No timeframe was given for the potential production of the convertible.
