The all-new Range Rover Velar, the fourth member of an expanded Range Rover family, is described by its chief designer as the most “car-like” model the off-road brand has produced.
Pricing for the Velar
The Velar will be priced from £44,830 and go on sale this summer. Land Rover’s new Porsche Macan rival is called “the most car-like Range Rover we’ve done so far, but just as capable” by Land Rover design director Gerry McGovern. “It’s a new type of Range Rover for a new type of customer,” he added.
Since releasing a so-called teaser image one week ago - a picture of the Velar from above with a panoramic sunroof showing some of the dashboard and screen set-up - 40,000 customers have registered interest in the model with 12,000 of those in the UK, according to Land Rover.
The car also ushers in a new, more high-tech Land Rover interior design that is expected to be rolled out across the rest of the range as the next generation of models is introduced.
The Velar shares its 2874mm wheelbase and aluminium architecture with the F-Pace, alongside which it will be built at the Solihull plant of Jaguar Land Rover (JLR).
