A new Range Rover will not only turn heads when it debuts next month but mess up hair in the process. The British manufacturer, known for off-road prowess, mixes that with an element of freedom and fun.
The Evoque Convertible promises a unique combination of traversing trails and catching the wind.
The first of its kind, the Evoque Convertible is running the final stage of testing at Eastnor Castle, a location significant to Land Rover for the last 45 years. All Range Rovers are subjected to the castle’s proving track and Evoque Convertible has sustained.
A final “sign-off” at the famous estate is expected soon.
Land Rover upholds their existing legacy with the Evoque Convertible by requiring such extreme tests. The drop top doesn’t mean it’s just a casual cruiser.
“Land Rover prides itself on being a class leader when it comes to all-terrain capability and the Evoque Convertible is no different. Thanks to a combination of innovative engineering and the application of advanced technologies, Evoque Convertible will deliver a dynamic and assured SUV experience that has been tested around the world. We call it ‘The Convertible for all Seasons’.” ~ Mike Cross, Chief Engineer, Vehicle Integrity – Land Rover
Land Rover confirmed a convertible version of the Range Rover Evoque at the Geneva Motor Show in March. Six full-scale wire sculptures showcased the design at a series of locations in London recently.
Evoque Convertible will be on sale in key markets, starting Spring 2016.
Land Rover is represented, along with Jaguar, by a network of over 330 retailers in the United States. Two design and four manufacturing facilities are spread across the United Kingdom. Each is engaged in a variety of sustainability, environmental, and community programs.
