Evoque has already won many accolades following its debut last year, Range Rover Evoque crossover will arrive in concept form, ahead of its debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.
The Range Rover Evoque is based on the three-door variant and features a retractable soft top (allows for better packaging), with a glass rear screen that tucks away neatly and 21-inch alloy wheels.
“The Evoque Convertible Concept is a new twist to the Evoque story and explores the potential to further extend the nameplate’s appeal by giving existing customers more choice, whilst at the same time reaching out to a completely new customer base,” commented John Edwards, Land Rover Global Brand Director.
Under the hood, the Range Rover Evoque is powered by a 2.0L Si4 turbo (2.0L 4-cylinder turbocharged Ford EcoBoost) making 240-hp. Mated to a 6-speed automatic, it can goes from 0-60 mph in the 7 second range.
In the words of Land Rover’s Design Director, Gerry McGovern, “The 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 Evoque’s lines to retain its distinctive shape and create something that is unique and, we believe, highly desirable.”
Unfortunately, Range Rover declined to mention and unpublished details whether or not the concept would go into production, but prices for the Range Rover Evoque start at $43,995 and $44,995 for the Range Rover Evoque coupe.
