Tata-owned luxury car maker Land Rover on Saturday launched its much-awaited Range Rover Velar with prices starting from ₹78.83 lakh in India. 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.

Available in three powertrains -- a 2.0 l 4-cylinder 132 kW diesel, a 2.0 l 4-cylinder 184 kW petrol, and a 3.0 l V6 221 kW diesel -- the new Range Rover Velar offers world-class refinement, all-terrain capability with exceptional performance, the company 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," Rohit Suri, President & Managing Director, Jaguar Land Rover India (JLRIL), said at the launch here.

A first of its kind, the Range Rover Velar is the fourth model in the Range Rover family that embodies an unquestionable design pedigree, adding a new dimension in refinement, technology and performance, the company said.

It is placed between the Range Rover Evoque and Range Rover Sport and is balanced with optimised proportions. It comes with a revolutionary design with foil-stamped grille, elegant sides and has sleek LED headlights and rear lights.
