Range Rover Evoque Convertible Might Still Enter Production

It seems that Range Prober believes consumers will purchase a convertible SUV despite the fact that Nissan has failed with its Murano CrossCabriolet. Motor Trend reports that when Rover is set to make a decision soon on whether or not its convertible SUV will go into production.

“[Evoque Convertible] is still an opportunity for us. We’re very close to making a decision,” Land Rover’s global brand director John Edwards said in an internal meeting in Melbourne, Australia. “It’s a car I want to do, we’ve just got to make sure the [math works].” Land Rover says that the reaction to the convertible SUV has been "pretty positive."

While the convertible version of the Evoque is still a question, Land Rover has confirmed that the longer wheelbase Range Rover and Range Rover Hybrid will launch later this year in markets outside the US. Land Rover says reaction to the convertible SUV has been "80% positive" in America and Europe.
