Range Rover Evoque convertible will be here in 2014

At the Geneva Motor Show in 2012 Land Rover displayed this concept, the Evoque convertible.  It looks as though it's been given the green light.

A Range Rover source has told What Car?, 'The Evoque Convertible now has the green light, it's going to be built.'

The Evoque convertible will require 75kg of strengthening - which isn't too bad considering the 3 door, on which the convertible will be based, only weighs 1600kg, the same as a Jaguar F-type.

The roof will be fabric and will share engines and layouts with the 3 door Evoque coupĂ©, which means diesels and petrol with 2 or 4 wheel drive.  It will go into production in 2014.

Land Rover recently announced that 220,000 Evoques have been built at the Halewood plant in its first 2 years of production.
