The Range Rover Evoque Convertible has been a case of on-again, off-again ever since they made the concept car. It seems that Land Rover’s top brass cannot make their mind about it. The very latest reports, though, suggest that they are going to take the risk anyway and put the car into production.
A convertible Evoque is certainly a very tempting proposition. But there are a couple of problems with it. First, it’s the looks. The Evoque is one of the most handsome cars ever in the history of universe. The convertible version though, while it’s pretty sexy with the roof down, it is not so charming with it up.
Then there is the issue of making it work. Taking the roof off in a normal car requires a lot of structural work to make sure it won’t fall to pieces if you go over a pothole at more than 5 miles an hour. It is doubly important in a roofless crossover vehicle with a high center of gravity.
So the Evoque convertible will either be a magnificent engineering marvel, or a total disaster. Only time will tell. Land Rover themselves have not yet confirmed the report of Evoque Convertible heading into production, but the word on the streets is that it will arrive sometime in 2014.
