The Range Rover Evoque Convertible concept revealed at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show will not go into production according to European media, though Land Rover is refusing to confirm or deny the rumours.

Unofficial reports currently circulating say that feedback from the public have led Jaguar Land Rover to having second thoughts about going into production with the Evoque Convertible.

Land Rover Design Director, Gerry McGovern, was originally upbeat about creating a convertible version of Evoque when he previously said, “The Evoque lends itself beautifully to the idea of a convertible. The 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.”

Land Rover hasn’t put a foot wrong since it launched the Range Rover Evoque in 2011, posting record sales for the entry-level Range Rover.

The iconic Brit off-road marque followed up with the recent launch of the new-generation Range Rover, which is also expected to sell well in the global market.

Next up for Land Rover will be the eagerly awaited next-generation Range Rover Sport, recently revealed at the New York Motor Show for the first time ahead of its global launch later in the year.

Land Rover Australia spokesperson, Tim Krieger would neither confirm nor deny the reports, rather, suggesting that the Range Rover Evoque Convertible Concept was still under consideration.

    thank God because that car is an abomination. the standard evoque is beautiful but a convertible is ridiculous

      very subjective…………………………..

    I think it looks stubby and weird. I like the standard Evoque but this just looks strange and lame.

    Hmmmm, not my cuppa, looks like someone had taken an angle grinder and chopped the roof off.  But I drove the petrol 4 door last week, gorgeous interior and otherwise quite a nice (but not awesome) drive.  Definitely easy to live with.

    I just don’t believe that deep down ANYONE likes what the Evoque looks like and who buys them. They’re despicable.

      Well I’m another that doesn’t like the chop top look. Saw a woman in a white one. In all the time they’ve been out only ever seen that one on the road and it looked very unbalanced.

    Hahaha…that’s one way to fix the poor rear headroom and visibility.

    There must be so many convertible 4WD moments in the UK…. hahaha. This is the ugliest car as a convertible, yet around where I live, I would say I have seen about 20 driving around. It’s definitely a good looking car in the normal form, especially in white. I’m in the market for a 4WD and love the look, yet a convertible? no.

  • Mr Clean

    Being a 4wd, I was wondering how good the dust sealing would be…hahaha

  • Evoque convertible buyer

    Sorry I think you people have missed the point. There is a market for SUV’s as people want a higher stance vehicle. The same goes for convertibles, where all choices are currently low to the ground. I think Range Rover knows this market better than you guys and should see that the same thing that has made it differentiated and successful in 4WD will work in a high convertible too

      That is why they aren’t going to build it.

      Oh ok so that explains why the Nissan murano cross cabriolet was SO successful lol
