Looks like Land Rover is finally, seriously, definitely going to put the long-awaited Range Rover Evoque Convertible into production. On the eve of the Geneva Motor Show they released footage of the car being tested at Crossrail tunnels below London.
The privacy of the huge construction sight allowed the engineers to complete their test without having to worry about spy photographers. But it must have got lonely down there because when they were done, they camo’d up the car and filmed and photographed it for everyone to see!
The point of this test is to prove despite being a cutesy convertible SUV, the Range Rover Evoque Convertible is still a full-blooded Rangie capable of dealing with rough terrain. The world’s first proper premium open-top SUV will go on sale in 2016.
Murray Dietsch, Director of Land Rover Programmes said: “The tunnels are still under construction, so we had a unique opportunity to explore the vehicle’s all-terrain ability in unchartered territory.”
