Land Rover has confirmed that it will produce a convertible version of the Range Rover Evoque and that it will go on sale in 2016.
The British truckmaker verifies the Range Rover Evoque Convertible production following a unique development test that saw the prototype vehicle drive through a 42km network of Crossrail tunnels. For the test, Land Rover's engineers were given the opportunity to drive the disguised Evoque Convertible with its roof lowered in complete privacy.
"The tunnels are still under construction, so we had a unique opportunity to explore the vehicle's all-terrain ability in unchartered territory," said Land Rover programs director Murray Dietsch.
Land Rover will reveal further details of the Range Rover Evoque Convertible later this year. It will be built alongside the Range Rover Evoque five-door and coupe at Land Rover’s Halewood plant in the United Kingdom.
