Evoque_Convertible_Wireframe_Studio

From a mere concept showcased at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show that no one believed would take shape, today, Land Rover has confirmed that the Range Rover Evoque Convertible will make its global debut in its full production form come November this year.

Spy photographers have captured the unbelievable convertible SUV time and time again, even when it was being tested at the infamous Nurburgring circuit.

Now, in the same way they teased the original Evoque, Land Rover are showing off its latest production model to come for all the world to see. Here’s a look at a series of wireframe models of the actual car being displayed publicly in London.

The wireframes are to actual 1:1 scale, and made of brightly-coloured aluminium wires. Londoners will be able to spot them located in front of the world-famous Harrods department store on Brompton Road, Knightsbridge and in other notable Mayfair addresses.

Land Rover’s very own Design team were responsible for producing the Evoque Convertible wireframes, using advanced computer modelling to accurately outline the shape of the forthcoming convertible SUV.

And as mentioned, LR has also confirmed that the car will be making its global debut come November 2015.

Land Rover Design director and chief creative officer said, “The Range Rover Evoque Convertible is perfectly suited to the urban surroundings of a city like London and it’s the perfect place to showcase the world’s first luxury compact SUV convertible. The locations chosen reflect the refined and luxurious lifestyle of an Evoque Convertible consumer – two attributes this vehicle delivers in abundance.

“The world’s first luxury compact SUV convertible” are words carefully chosen by the LR Design director, given that the simpler honour of being “world’s first SUV convertible” has already been snatched up by the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet. The Range Rover does however enjoy the premium positioning over the Nissan.

For now, the only other things we can tell you about the Range Rover Evoque Convertible is that it will be a four-seater SUV, and that will be built alongside its three- and five-door siblings at the Halewood plant in the UK.

The Evoque Convertible isn’t expected to weigh much more than its regular siblings either. Although, in the event of a turnover (literally), the Evoque Convertible will be equipped with a Roll Over Protection System that pops-up automatically to protect passengers from impact.

Performance wise, there shouldn’t be any other engine options outside of what’s already available to the latest-gen Range Rover Evoque, and this should include the new Ingenium diesel engines available in two states of tune (150 PS and 180 PS), and the 240 PS Si4 petrol engine.
