The New Range Rover Velar is a pure expression of modern luxury, featuring the latest technology, trademark Range Rover refinement and a dramatic, clean and reductive new design.
A new grille combines with the characteristic floating roof, unbroken waistline and flush deployable door handles that define the world’s most desirable luxury SUV family. New super-slim Pixel LED headlights5 provide a technical jewel like appearance and optimised visibility while the exterior is enhanced by a new lower rear bumper and dark accents.
Range Rover’s reductive design philosophy continues inside; a new single floating 11.4-inch curved glass touchscreen is integrated into the centre console, providing immediate and intuitive control to all key vehicle functions. Meanwhile, a crafted interior features redesigned seats and new colours and materials, including a leather-free cabin option.
A full suite of technologies promotes passenger comfort and wellbeing, operated from the new single touchscreen. To ensure a cosseted and calm sanctuary, free from interruptions and road noise, the New Range Rover Velar features Active Road Noise Cancellation. This intelligent technology ensures Velar offers the quietest vehicle in its class for road noise. Cabin Air Purification Plus is also available as an option, to enhance its calm cabin environment, with the convenience of built-in Amazon Alexa. Software Over The Air ensures the New Range Rover Velar can always receive the latest software updates at the client’s convenience.
New Range Rover Velar has power to suit every client, including the P400e plug-in electric hybrid. It is available alongside a range of smooth Ingenium petrol and diesel engines, all featuring Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) technology that boosts fuel efficiency and performance.
The advanced P400e electric hybrid provides the best of all worlds, combining a 105kW electric motor with an Ingenium petrol engine to provide effortless and hushed performance.
The balance of electric-only driving and petrol performance means the Range Rover Velar P400e is perfect for short urban trips and longer journeys. It has an expected real-world range of up to 51km (32 miles) – enough to ensure the average daily distance driven in a Range Rover Velar could be done with zero tailpipe emissions.
For longer journeys, the plug-in hybrid powertrain provides a combined real-world 684km (425 miles) of petrol and electric range.
With a combined 404PS and 640Nm of torque from its 300PS 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine and 105kW electric motor, the P400e is capable of accelerating from 0-100km/h in 5.4 seconds (0-60mph in 5.1 seconds), with a 209km/h (130mph) top speed. It can also travel on electric power alone up to 140km/h (87mph).
The P400e is one of very few plug-in electric hybrid vehicles capable of rapid DC charging, with a 0-80 per cent charge possible in as little as 30 minutes away from home using a 50kW charger. At home, it can charge from 0-100 per cent using a 7kW AC charger in around two and a half hours.
Adaptive Dynamics is standard on all six-cylinder and PHEV models as well as all Dynamic HSE-specification four-cylinder models and ensures suspension stiffness is optimised for the driving conditions, improving ride comfort and handling. There’s even a specific calibration for off-road driving. Advanced chassis and suspensions, including Electronic Air Suspension, Adaptive Dynamics and Configurable Dynamics, deliver exceptional performance and agility on-road.
Supreme all-terrain performance is also guaranteed, with assured Range Rover breadth of capability thanks to an intelligent torque on-demand all-wheel drive (AWD) system. It provides the optimum torque distribution to suit the conditions, whether driving dynamically on the road or pulling away from a standstill on slippery surfaces.
