Land Rover , part of Tata Motors Group based in India, has
unveiled its first compact convertible SUV in London. The Range Rover Evoque

The eye-catching exterior
design of the Range Rover Evoque Convertible is made possible by a
sophisticated fabric roof shaped to create a defined silhouette. Its Z-fold
mechanism lays flush with the rear bodywork for a sleek, uncluttered appearance
The fully-automated roof stows
in 18 seconds, and can be raised in 21 seconds, at speeds up to 30mph (approx.
48kmph). When closed, it provides high standards of refinement with a layer of
acoustic insulation ensuring interior comfort on par with the five-door Range
Rover Evoque. The 8.9-cu. ft. (251-litre) luggage space offers added
At the heart of the cabin is an all-new, 10.2-inch touch-screen featuring the next-generation Jaguar Land Rover InControl Touch Pro infotainment system. Making its debut for the Land Rover brand on the Range Rover Evoque Convertible, InControl Touch Pro offers seamless smartphone integration and is available with door-to-door navigation, Wi-Fi connectivity and a premium sound system2.
Providing additional driver protection, a roll-over protection system is hidden within the rear bodywork. In the event of a roll-over situation, the system is designed to deploy two aluminum bars within 90 milliseconds to create a potential protection space for occupants4.
The Range Rover Evoque
Convertible is underpinned by the all-terrain capability expected of all Land
Rover vehicles and uses the same advanced technologies as the Range Rover
Evoque five-door and coupe derivatives. The standard all-wheel drive system
works with the vehicle's 240-hp
turbocharged four-cylinder engine, nine-speed automatic transmission and
Terrain Response system to ensure the Range Rover Evoque Convertible retains
its capability in a variety of conditions, on- and off-road, in all seasons4.
The new Range Rover Evoque
Convertible will be produced at the Land Rover Halewood plant in the UK,
alongside the five door and coupe body styles, and goes on sale from mid-2016
in more than 170 markets worldwide.
Gerry McGovern, Land Rover
Design Director and Chief Creative Officer, commented, "The Range Rover
Evoque Convertible is a vehicle for all seasons. Its uniquely distinctive
design and world-class engineering add another dimension to the Range Rover
family, further enhancing its desirability and appeal."
