“The Evoque Convertible now has the green light, it’s going to be built,” the source said.
The report comes despite whispers earlier this year that suggested full-scale production of the open-topped SUV had been ruled out.
New reports claim the production version will retain much of the concept’s features, including a three-door body style and a folding fabric roof instead of metal.
Engines choices are also believed to mirror the regular Evoque range, with both petrol and diesel options to be made available in the convertible.
As far as medium convertible SUVs go, the Range Rover Evoque would be the only model on the market, at least in Australia.
Speaking of Australia, no word yet on whether a Range Rover Evoque Convertible would be offered for sale here.
