Jaguar Land Rover to reveal a new vehicle in their Range Rover line-up

Jaguar Land Rover is set to reveal the fourth new-vehicle in their Range Rover line-up on Wednesday 1st March.

The Range Rover Velar is hoped to fill the gap between the Evoque and Sport models in the line-up. The name was chosen when development engineers needed to hide the identity of the pre-production Range Rovers since Velar derives from the Latin ‘velaris’ meaning to veil or cover.

Land Rover’s 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 new model initially thought to be the ‘Evoque XL’ will face competition from the Porsche Macan. Automotive analysts have said any addition to the Range Rover family will be a hit after the success of the Evoque, which became Jaguar Land Rover’s best-selling model worldwide.
