Whitley, UK, 05 October 2015 – The All-New Range Rover Evoque Convertible will be the most capable convertible in the world when it debuts in November after completing Land Rover’s punishing development and testing programme with flying colours.

Hot on the heels of last week’s London takeover, where six full-scale wireframe sculptures showcased Evoque Convertible’s elegant design at a series of iconic locations, Land Rover has released a film showcasing its all-terrain credentials.

The footage, released today, shows the world’s first luxury compact SUV convertible completing the final phase of testing at Land Rover’s legendary Eastnor Castle estate, in Herefordshire, UK. The film demonstrates how Land Rover’s engineers have rigorously tested the four-wheel drive Convertible to ensure it delivers customary all-terrain capability.

Mike Cross, Land Rover Chief Engineer, Vehicle Integrity, said: “Land Rover prides itself on being a class leader when it comes to all-terrain capability and the Evoque Convertible is no different. Thanks to a combination of innovative engineering and the application of advanced technologies, Evoque Convertible will deliver a dynamic and assured SUV experience that has been tested around the world. We call it ‘The Convertible for all Seasons’.”

Land Rover confirmed plans to launch a highly desirable convertible derivative of its multi award-winning Range Rover Evoque at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2015. The bold addition to the range has just completed its extensive development programme and continues Land Rover’s tradition for creating and leading new market segments.

Travelling the globe, Evoque Convertible has proved its capability and durability in a series of demanding tests before undergoing final sign-off at the famous Eastnor Castle Estate, where all Range Rovers have been put through their paces for the last 45 years.

Launching in November and making its public debut at the Los Angeles International Auto Show, Evoque Convertible will be on sale in Australia from Quarter 2, 2016. Pricing will be announced closer to launch.

Since 1948 Land Rover has been manufacturing authentic 4x4s that represent true ‘breadth of capability’ across the model range. Defender, Discovery, Discovery Sport, Range Rover Sport, Range Rover and Range Rover Evoque each define the world’s 4×4 sectors, with 80% of this model range exported to over 170 countries.

The Government’s Regional Growth Fund
The Range Rover Evoque Convertible is supported by the UK Government’s Regional Growth Fund (RGF). The Government’s RGF has invested nearly £3 billion to help businesses in England to grow; so far generating over 100,000 jobs. 56 new awards in Round 6 and seven through exceptional RGF support – announced on 12 February 2015, gives £297 million to 63 projects and programmes to create and safeguard thousands more jobs and unlock an additional £1.5 billion private sector investment.
