Range Rover Evoque Convertible Concept

A couple weeks ago, Land Rover released a quartet of studio shots featuring its new Range Rover Evoque Convertible concept. The concept, which is currently on display at the Geneva Motor Show, potentially marks one of Land Rover’s “40 significant product actions” that will be developed over the next several years. More recently, Land Rover released additional photos of the vehicle (including one with the top up) and a brief video.

No Grand Evoque?

The fate of the Evoque Convertible remains unknown at this time, but according to a recent article on What Car?, it is expected that Land Rover will make a production decision within the next three months. However, the What Car? article also mentioned that the seven-seat Evoque is a non-starter and there is the possibility of a new Land Rover or Range Rover model that will slot in below the Evoque and/or the LR2.

It’s possible a seven-seat Evoque was nixed because Land Rover would rather bump up the Range Rover Sport into a seven seat configuration, but that’s pure speculation at this point. Another possibility is an all-new seven-seat model that fits somewhere in the upper-end of the Range Rover family. As far as the smaller Landy, we’re not sure how much smaller Land Rover is talking. Smaller than the Evoque/LR2 and you’re into Nissan Cube and Kia Soul territory. Smaller yet, and you’re talking about Aston Martin Cygnet or Smart ForTwo material. Beyond that, and you’re peddling one of Land Rover’s bicycles.
