WHITELY, England – The All-New Range Rover Evoque Convertible will be the most capable convertible in the world when it debuts in November 2015 after completing Land Rover’s punishing development and testing programme with flying colours.
Hot on the heels of last week’s London takeover, when six full-scale wireframe sculptures showcased the car’s elegant design at a series of iconic locations in central London, Land Rover has released a film showcasing its all-terrain credentials.

The video shows the world’s first luxury compact SUV convertible completing the final phase of testing at Land Rover’s legendary Eastnor Castle estate in Herefordshire, UK, demonstrating how Land Rover’s engineers have rigorously tested the all-wheel drive Convertible to ensure it delivers customary all-terrain capability.
Mike Cross, Land Rover’s chief engineer for vehicle integrity, told the Corner in a media release: “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, it will deliver a dynamic and assured SUV experience that has been tested around the world.
“We call it ‘The Convertible for all Seasons’.”
Land Rover confirmed plans to launch a highly desirable convertible derivative of its multi award-winning Range Rover Evoque at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2015. The bold addition to the range has just completed its extensive development programme and continues Land Rover’s tradition for creating and leading new market segments.
The car will be launched in November 2015 at the Los Angeles auto show and reach showrooms globally in early 2016.
