World's first Convertible SUV from Land Rover to be launched/unveiled at Geneva Motor Show in March 2012

If you are looking to get a Convertible Utility Vehicle, the only option available till now is the Nissan Murano Cross Cabriolet, a Crossover. That may soon change as Land Rover unveils its Range Rover Evoque convertible concept at next month’s Geneva Motor Show.

The worl's first cabriolet version of the 'baby' 4X4 Range Rover Evoque is expected to cost between £35,000 and £50,000 - depending on trim level - when it hits showrooms within two years. Due to the lack of a solid roof, the convertible variant weighs in 165 lbs heavier than its non-convertible counterpart.

"The Evoque lends itself beautifully to the idea of a convertible, said Land Rover design director Gerry McGovern. “This study is not a traditional convertible design execution; instead we have worked with the balance of the Evoque's lines to retain its distinctive shape and create something that is unique and, we believe, highly desirable."

nside, the concept is packed with Evoque's award winning technology including Terrain Response, surround cameras, Park Assist and class leading infotainment featuring an 8-inch dual view touch screen and a sound system from British audio experts, Meridian. The Evoque Convertible Concept features unique 21-inch Titan silver wheels and is finished in a new metallic Causeway Grey paint. The interior is in Lunar and Ivory with leather seats featuring sporty perforated panels and Ivory contrast stitching.

John Edwards, Land Rover Global Brand Director said: "The Evoque Convertible Concept is a new twist to the Evoque story and explores the potential to further extend the nameplate's appeal by giving existing customers more choice, whilst at the same time reaching out to a completely new customer base. We are excited to see the response to this concept as we assess the potential for building on the Evoque's exceptional success so far."
