Scoop: Production-spec Range Rover Evoque convertible spotted

June 10, 2015

The Land Rover Range Rover Evoque was first unveiled in concept form at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2012, followed by a production approval in March this year.

Now a new set of undisguised images, courtesy of autopareri forum member Pandino, reveal what appears to be the production-spec Range Rover Evoque Convertible. The forum member states that the images were clicked during the convertible crossover’s photo shoot. This means that it is nearing its unveiling, and may be unveiled before the 66th International Motor Show in Frankfurt kicks off in September this year.

The images don’t give a close view but do reveal that the vehicle has 2+2 seating and a soft-top retractable roof, like the company announced. The body paint is apparently the Phoenix Orange from the Evoque Autobiography unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2014. The similarity with the Autobiography edition is also seen with the blacked-out alloy wheels.

The convertible crossover is expected to offer Jaguar Land Rover’s new Ingenium range engines. The 2.0-litre petrol and diesel engines should be offered with a 6-speed manual or 9-speed automatic transmission options, sending torque to either a front-wheel drive system or a full-time four-wheel drive drivetrain, just like the fixed-roof version.
