Land Rover has confirmed via the Geneva Motor Show, and a unique video, that it will indeed be launching a convertible version of the Range Rover Evoque. The new model will go on sale in 2016.
The video shows a prototype Evoque convertible, in full camouflage, being lowered by crane into London's Crossrail Tunnel, currently under construction. The car navigates the 26 miles of 6.2 meter wide tunnels, driving up, over, around, and through various obstacles. In their press release, Land Rover describes the tunnel-drive as the "ultimate urban test track," and the Evoque Convertible as "The world's first premium compact SUV convertible."
Land Rover says they will reveal more details about the upcoming convertible model later this year. So far all that is certain is that they will be offered, and that they will be built at the company's Halewood facility along with the other Evoques and the new Discovery Sport.
