Range Rover launches new Ve­lar model

AUTO NEWS

The Hamilton Spectator - - WHEELS -

Ve­lar, the fourth mem­ber of the Range Rover fam­ily will be un­veiled on March 1, 2017.

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.

Full de­tails of the Range Rover Ve­lar will be an­nounced on March 1, 2017.

For al­most 70 years the brand has built a rep­u­ta­tion for pro­vid­ing its clien­tele with some of the most lux­u­ri­ous and ca­pa­ble ve­hi­cles in the world; whether driv­ing through the heart of the city or travers­ing the coun­try­side on- and off-road.

To­day’s Land Rover lineup in­cludes the Dis­cov­ery (LR4) and Dis­cov­ery Sport, Range Rover, Range Rover Sport and Range Rover Evoque.

Land Rover is fully en­gaged with sus­tain­abil­ity ini­tia­tives and so­cial con­cerns with con­tin­u­ous in­volve­ment in en­vi­ron­men­tal and com­mu­nity pro­grams.

Be­ing un­veiled March 1, the new Range Rover Ve­lar is seen as fill­ing gap be­tween the gap be­tween the Evoque and Sport.
