The concept has been developed by Land Rover Design Director, Gerry McGovern and his team. Commenting on the concept, McGovern said: “The Range Rover Evoque lends itself beautifully to the idea of a convertible. This study is not a traditional convertible design execution – instead we have worked with the balance of the Range Rover Evoque’s lines to retain its distinctive shape and create something that is unique and, we believe, highly desirable.”
The soft-top convertible concept is based on the Range Rover Evoque Coupe. It features a fully retractable premium roof system with a Roll Over Protection System [ROPS]. The concept cleverly combines capability and versatility with a drop down tailgate and a comfortable four seat package. The vehicle has been developed with Land Rover DNA at its heart, retaining key characteristics including a sports command driving position and all-terrain capability.
Inside, the concept is packed with the Range Rover Evoque’s award winning technology including Terrain Response, surround cameras, an 8-inch touch screen and a sound system from British audio experts, Meridian. The Range Rover Evoque Convertible Concept features unique 21-inch Titan silver wheels and is finished in a new metallic Causeway Grey paint.The interior is in Lunar and Ivory with leather seats featuring sporty perforated panels and Ivory contrast stitching.
