The Land Rover Range Rover Velar UK: /ˈvɛ.lɚ/ is a British luxury mid-size crossover SUV made by Land Rover. The fourth model in the Range Rover line, the Velar was unveiled on 1 March 2017. The Velar will be released in the summer of 2017. The name Velar had previously been used for a series of pre-production first-generation Range Rovers in 1969.
The Range Rover Velar ushers in a new design language for Land Rover that is influenced by Land Rover's previous design language that began with the Evoque and most recently was used in the Range Rover Sport. Featuring the lowest height of Range Rover models, the new design language will feature smoother lines on the body, and emphasize sportiness and onroad ability, but more important is the new interior design language that begins with the Velar, which will later spread to other Range Rover models. The interior of the Velar will be influenced by that of the I-Pace and will feature three touchscreens, which will control most of the interior features of the Velar. The cockpit of the Velar is more driver-focused and the seating position is lower than any other Land Rover before, as sportiness and on-road performance are top priorities.
The Range Rover Velar was first officially revealed in a series of teaser photos of 22 February 2017, and unveiled at an event at the London Design Museum on 1 March 2017. The official launch was at the Geneva Motor Show on 7 March 2017, with it being made available for order shortly after and the first deliveries making it to dealers in the summer of 2017.
Built on Jaguar iQ[AI] (D7a) platform, the Range Rover Velar shares a number of components with the Jaguar F-Pace, XF, and XE models, notably its aluminium platform and 2,874 mm (113.1 in) wheelbase. The Velar is built at the same factory in Solihull. However, the Range Rover is 72 mm (2.8 in) longer than the F-Pace.
Like its platform-mates, the Range Rover Velar uses Jaguar Land Rover's Ingenium line of four-cylinder diesel and petrol engines in addition to JLR's six-cylinder engines. All 4-cylinder engines are paired with the ZF (8HP45) 8-speed automatic transmission, while all 6-cylinder engines mate with the ZF (8HP70) 8-speed automatic transmission.
