And Velar makes four!
A new, fourth, member of the Range Rover family, the sport/ luxury Velar, was due to be revealed for the first time officially on March 01 this year.
Land Rover Chief Design Officer, Gerry McGovern, said: “We call the Velar the avant garde Range Rover. It brings a new dimension of glamour, modernity and elegance to the brand. The Range Rover Velar changes everything.”
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 preproduction Range Rovers, they chose the name Velar, derived from the Latin velare meaning to veil or cover.
Full details next month.
