A convertible crossover/SUV? Were they not paying attention to Nissan's astounding success at a similar vehicle?

Yes but the Evok-weh is the RR offering for fashionistas so the ability to pose down the Kings Road with the top down will mean this thing will sell like hot cakes.

We all scoffed at a coupe SUV when the X6 came out and look at how that is doing. Put the right badge on something and people will lap it up.... :bmwpoo:

Or get a new/used Wrangler and take the top off.

As MWF said, this will sell on the badge alone. Allows one to show off their RR and trophy wife all at once!

If I want a convertible 4x4 I'll buy one of these:



If I specifically want a convertible Range Rover I'll buy one of these:



Thanks, but no thanks.

Yes but you have to bear in mind that none of us here, with the possible exception of rickhamilton, are in the target demographic. In fact I would say the average FG member isn't the target market for 99% of the cars on sale today. We are the exception rather than the rule and the "car enthusiast" is a dying breed.

It's not a Range rover...but...
Nor is it a convertible.

Anyway, if someone wants "a mans" off roader convertible there has been an option for the last seventy years.

To be fair, There was never a Convertible 3-door Range Rover from factory. That red one was converted into a 'vert in 1980.

Wasn't the Jeep included in a list of the top ten gayest cars a while back?

A spokesman for British automaker Land Rover today insisted that the company was ?completely serious? about producing the Range Rover Evoque Convertible.

?Yes, we?re completely serious about producing this vehicle,? said Sir Nigel Elton Colin Hammersmith Cockfoster-Wingebastard VIII, MBE, MP, OIC, OU812, Fifty-Third Earl of Nosingham-by-the-Dumpster. ?And frankly, I can?t understand why the automotive press would think we weren?t.

?Our press office has been inundated with enquiries asking if this is a joke, or that if there was some sort of a late-night alcohol-fueled office party preceding the announcement,? Cockfoster-Wingebastard told an assembled group of journalists at a press conference earlier today. ?I have told them, and I will tell you, that nothing of the sort is going on. We really think the world is ready for a convertible crossover utility vehicle, and? please, gentleman, I can?t make myself heard if you?re going to keep laughing so loud.?

Land Rover issued a press release saying the Evoque Convertible would be revealed in November and go on sale some time in the spring of 2016.

?No, we haven?t scheduled the debut for the first of April,? said Cockfoster-Wingebastard in response to a reporter?s question. ?Why would we do that? Really, gentleman, I don?t see what is so funny. What? Murano? Never heard of it. What is that, some sort of cheese??
