Land Rover has been testing its new Range Rover Evoque Convertible in the tunnels of London's massive unfinished subway project.

Apparently, the folks working on London’s massive new subway program, the 26-mile Crossrail tunnels, know how to keep a secret. Even as they’ve been working away on Europe’s biggest infrastructure project, 130 feet underground, British maker Land Rover has been using the partially completed tunnels to test out its new Range Rover Evoque Convertible.

The maker today confirmed the unusual SUV convertible will go on sale in 2016, though it isn’t saying much more about the project beyond what one can pick out in a short film taken while the Evoque Convertible was being driven through the Crossrail tunnels.

Range Rover will show a convertible concept based on the Evoque at the Geneva Motor Show next month.

Mention the idea of a Land Rover convertible and you’re likely to get a puzzled look or even an outright guffaw in response. But The British SUV maker defied conventional wisdom when it rolled out the topless DC100 concept during last year’s Frankfurt Motor Show and it’s about to take a step further with a show car that seems certain to preview a production ragtop.

Land Rover is the latest in a flood of maker’s to telegraph its plans for the upcoming Geneva Motor Show and its likely to generate plenty of interest with the reveal of the Range Rover Evoque Convertible Concept developed by design chief Gerry McGovern’s team based on the 3-door Evoque Coupe.


The hardtop recently named the North American Truck of the Year – along with an assortment of other awards – McGovern insists, “The Range Rover Evoque lends itself beautifully to the idea of a convertible.”

He notes that the concept is “not a traditional convertible design execution – instead we have worked with the balance of the Range Rover Evoque’s lines to retain its distinctive shape and create something that is unique and, we believe, highly desirable.”
