Ultimately, the success of the regular Evoque three- and five-door variants persuaded Land Rover to do so, as we now have spy shots of a prototype for the production version. It confirms that Land Rover is keeping the two-door, 2+2 seating layout of the concept.
Like on the concept, the production Evoque Convertible features a folding soft-top roof. This should fold away into a storage compartment behind the rear seats, although this means that there will be very little storage room with the top down. One new element not seen on the concept is a small wing spoiler at the rear.

Like all Evoques, drive in the Evoque Convertible will be either to the front wheels or all four via a nine-speed automatic introduced for 2014. Other markets will have a six-speed manual on offer as well.
Land Rover recently started a teaser campaign for the vehicle and confirmed that sales will commence next year. Note, there are even more Evoque variants thought to be in the works. Possibilities include a long-wheelbase model and a performance variant.
