More teasing for the upcoming Range Rover Evoque Convertible. This time, the “world’s first luxury compact SUV convertible” is seen on video in the final stage of testing at Land Rover’s challenging all-terrain proving ground in Herefordshire, UK. It may be a convertible, but it’s still a Land Rover, the company must be trying to say.

“Land Rover prides itself on being a class leader when it comes to all-terrain capability and the Evoque Convertible is no different. Thanks to a combination of innovative engineering and the application of advanced technologies, Evoque Convertible will deliver a dynamic and assured SUV experience that has been tested around the world. We call it ‘The Convertible for all Seasons’,” said Mike Cross, Land Rover chief engineer of vehicle integrity.

LR confirmed plans to launch a topless derivative of its smash hit Evoque at the Geneva Motor Show in March this year. Launching in November and making its public debut at the Los Angeles International Auto Show, the Evoque Convertible will be on sale in the UK from spring 2016.

We’ve so far seen the Evoque Convertible at the Nurburgring and in downtown London. Not long now.
