Land Rover has confirmed Range Rover Evoque convertible, the world’s first premium compact SUV Range will go on sale in 2016.
RR_Evoque_Convertible_1Forty metres below the streets of London, UK, the first prototype of Land Rover’s new Range Rover Evoque Convertible was granted exclusive access to the 26-mile (42 km) network of Crossrail tunnels for a development test with a difference.

Crossrail is currently the biggest and most expensive construction project in Europe, creating 26 miles (42 km) of new tunnels that will connect the City, Canary Wharf, the West End and Heathrow Airport to commuter areas east and west of the capital.

RR_Evoque_Convertible_2Murray Dietsch, Director of Land Rover Programmes said: “The tunnels are still under construction, so we had a unique opportunity to explore the vehicle’s all-terrain ability in unchartered territory.”

RR_Evoque_Convertible_4The Evoque convertible will be built alongside the five door and coupe Evoque at Land Rover’s Halewood plant in the UK and will be on sale in 2016.
