Range Rover Velar has officially gone on sale in the Indian market at a starting price of Rs. 78.83 Lakhs (Ex. Showroom). Though, the luxury British marque had already announced the prices and variants last year in December, but the deliveries have started now only with immediate effect. The Range Rover Velar is placed between the Range Rover Evoque and Range Rover Sport. Derived from the Latin word Velare meaning 'to cover' or 'veil', Velar is a direct reference to the code name used on the original, pre-production Range Rovers of the late 1960s.
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.” The Velar SUV flaunts foil-stamped grille, sleek LED headlights and rear lights. In addition, the SUV gets flush deployable door handles and integrated rear spoiler for improved aerodynamic efficiency. At the rear, the vehicle’s design is distinguished by quad tail light signature elements with the iconic Range Rover script.
The interior cabin boasts of beautiful materials, including optional Windsor leather with a signature Cut Diamond pattern. There is a twin-screen 10-inch touch Pro Duo infotainment system, which combines a rake-adjustable upper touchscreen with a second screen in the main console between the seats, which retreats to a solid, opaque darkness until required. Between the two screens, which are linked allowing occupants to move content between the two with a flick of a finger, nearly every non-dynamic feature can be controlled. Available in three powertrains, a 2.0L 4-cylinder 177bhp diesel, a 2.0L 4-cylinder 247bhp petrol, and a 3.0L V6 296bhp diesel, Range Rover Velar comes with torque-on-demand all-wheel-drive (AWD) system, Terrain Response 2 and All-Terrain Progress Control (ATPC) as standard.
