The Evoque Convertible might well be the answer to a question that no one’s yet asked, but if it goes into production, the chances are it’s going to sell. Currently listed as a concept, it’s clear that Land Rover has put a lot of thought into examining this untapped new market niche, and hopes to continue the Evoque’s huge commercial success globally.
The car is said to be very much the brainchild of Gerry McGovern, who is keen to stamp his identity on a design that was quite advanced when he took the top job at Land Rover. Customer clinicking of the new drop-top starts soon, and if production gets the go-ahead, it should be in the showrooms towards the end of 2013.
