“You can go too far with the Evoque, but what’s so right about the car is it has what I call killer proportions,” McGovern said. “For the moment, we’re looking at the cabriolet and special editions – we could do a more overtly sporty one, for example.”

McGovern went onto say that 88 percent of Evoque buyers are new to the brand, which has allowed the company to push boundaries with a concept like the Evoque Convertible Concept and the Victoria Beckham special-edition that was unveiled at the 2012 Beijing Motor Show.

Now powertrain details for the Range Rover Evoque Sport were given. If the model does make it to production, expect it to hit markets some time next year.
