Range Rover Velar Launched; Prices Start At ₹ 78.83 Lakh

Velar sits between the Evoque and the Range Rover Sport.

 

Land Rover has launched the Velar in the India market with a choice of two diesels and one petrol engine. The model sits between the Evoque and the Range Rover Sport with prices starting at ₹ 78.83 lakh and going up to ₹ 1.37 crore (ex-showroom).

 

The Velar first debuted last year at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show and is the company’s most road-focussed model yet. But it retains Land Rover’s off-road talent with torque-on demand, all-wheel drive (AWD) system, Terrain Response 2, All-Terrain Progress Control (ATPC), etc. The Velar is available with a choice of three engines – a 247-bhp, 2.0-litre petrol, a 177-bhp, 2.0-litre diesel and a 296-bhp, 3.0-litre V6 diesel. All engines are paired to an 8-speed automatic transmission.

 

The ‘Velar’ name is taken from the original Range Rover prototypes of 1969. It is derived from the Latin word ‘velare’ which means veil or cover. The Velar’s design is a combination of the Evoque and the Range Rover Sport with the model featuring a rising beltline similar to the Evoque and a new interpretation of company’s classic floating roof. It also features horizontal tail-lamps, which is a first for a Range Rover model. Inside the Velar gets a minimalistic dashboard and TFT display for the instrument cluster along with large dual touchscreen infotainment system in the centre console.

 

Features available on the Velar include a new foil stamped grille, LED headlamps and tail-lamps, flush door handles, Cut Diamond pattern throughout the cabin, optional Windsor leather, a rake-adjustable 10-inch Touch Pro Duo infotainment system in the dashboard and a second screen in the centre console, etc.

 

Rohit Suri, President & Managing Director, Jaguar Land Rover India Ltd. (JLRIL), said: “Since the global reveal of Range Rover Velar, it has received an overwhelming interest in India from media, customers and Land Rover enthusiasts. The Velar was one of the most awaited luxury SUVs and with its addition, the Land Rover product portfolio has a luxury SUV for every customer need. The Velar will further strengthen Land Rover’s position in the overall Luxury SUV market in India.”
