Love it or hate it, this is the 2017 Evoque Convertible

Love it or hate it, this is the 2017 Evoque Convertible

A drop-top, off-road-capable, fashion-friendly, urban SUV might seem like an odd beast, but Range Rover clearly thinks it has legs in the 2017 Evoque Convertible. Taking the broadly popular CUV and lopping off its metal roof, the open-air Evoque has a fabric hood that drops in eighteen seconds, and which can be used at speeds up to 30 mph.

Ford said to have long-range all-electric car in the works [Update: denied]

All-electric cars are starting to gain quite a bit of momentum.
