Land Rover has another surprise for the upcoming 2015 Geneva Motor Show, and it’s the Range Rover Evoque Convertible. How to introduce a unique vehicle such as this off-road capable convertible SUV? How about driving through Europe’s largest construction project? Land Rover was given exclusive access to London’s Crossrail project, which consists of 26 miles of train tunnels that lie deep underneath the city.
The new tunnel system is not finished yet, but the Evoque Convertible was able to drive some of the distance and negotiate obstacles around the construction site with its top down and surrounded in secrecy.
Land Rover says the Evoque Convertible will go on sale in the 2016 calendar year. The company has not yet announced whether it will be available in the United States. Perhaps, it can succeed as an off-road oriented vehicle, where others did not find many sales.
The London Crossrail project is looking to improve city’s public transport system with 21 kilometers of new tunnels and 10 additional train (or is it “tube”?) stations.
