  • New addition to the Range Rover family, filling the white space between the Range Rover Evoque and the Range Rover Sport
  • ‘Velar’ name derived from the original Range Rover prototypes of 1969
  • World premiere on March 1, 2017; US debut at the 2017 New York International Auto Show

The year was 1970 when Land Rover debuted the original Range Rover, the ultimate SUV.  Nearly half a century later, that essence of innovation still prevails with the unveiling of the fourth member of the Range Rover family, which is set to happen on March 1, 2017 at the New York International Auto Show.

Elegant simplicity, a visually reductive approach and all-new consumer technologies are the hallmarks of the new Range Rover Velar.

Land Rover Chief Design Officer, Gerry McGovern, said: “We call the Velar the avant-garde Range Rover. It brings a new dimension of glamour, modernity and elegance to the brand. The Range Rover Velar changes everything.”

Refined for every occasion and for various terrains, the Range Rover Velar uses unique sustainable materials and advanced engineering to continue Land Rover’s drive to go Above and Beyond.
The origin of the Velar name (pronounced vel-ar) dates back to the first Range Rover prototypes of the Sixties: the pioneers of the luxury SUV landscape.

When development engineers needed to hide the true identity of the 26 pre-production Range Rover vehicles, they chose the name Velar, derived from the Latin ‘velare’ meaning to veil or cover.
