The new Range Rover Velar features pioneering new technology and hybrid electrification, continuing Range Rover’s 50-year history of innovation.
Electric: The Range Rover family is now fully electrified. The Plug-In Hybrid Range Rover Velar ‘P400e’ offers customers an impressive all-electric range of 53km (33 miles) and CO2 emissions of 49g/km for more efficient journeys, with 48-volt mild hybrids also available across the range.
Luxurious: Modern and sophisticated design, now with new exterior colour options including Lantau Bronze, exclusively available on the ‘Range Rover Velar Edition’.
All-Terrain: Range Rover’s unrivalled all-wheel-drive capability on every terrain, with new mild-hybrid (MHEV) in-line six-cylinder Ingenium petrol and diesel engines with air suspension as standard. Next-generation four-cylinder mild-hybrid Ingenium diesel offers exceptional efficiency, power and on-road performance.
Refined: The interior is a calm sanctuary, with new Pivi infotainment, Active Road Noise Cancellation for quieter and more serene journeys, and new Cabin Air Filtration† for healthier, cleaner air inside.
The Range Rover Velar is now even more desirable, sustainable and intelligent with the introduction of an electric plug-in hybrid option, advanced new infotainment technology and elegant new design features.
The mid-size luxury SUV, which sits between the Range Rover Evoque and Range Rover Sport in the family line-up, offers customers the perfect balance of design and technology – now with electric power.
The new engines are available with mild-hybrid electric vehicle technology (MHEV) in addition to the latest engine technologies, for efficient performance. The MHEV system uses a Belt integrated Starter Generator (BiSG) in the engine bay to harvest energy usually lost under deceleration, which is then stored in a 48V lithium-ion battery located beneath the rear loadspace. It is able to redeploy the stored energy to assist the engine when accelerating away, while also delivering a more refined and responsive stop/start system.
The new P340 and P400 straight-six engines generate 480Nm/550Nm torque respectively, while the powerful P400 delivers an impressive 0-60mph time of 5.2 seconds (0-100km in 5.5 seconds.) Both engines feature an electric supercharger supported by a twin-scroll turbocharger and Continuous Variable Valve Lift (CVVL), for refined performance.
The D300 diesel generates 650Nm torque, offering 0-60mph in 6.1 seconds (0-100km/h in 6.5 seconds) with a fuel economy of up to 38.2mpg (7.4litres/100km) and CO2 from 194g/km. Series sequential turbos and an advanced after-treatment system make it one of the world’s leading clean diesel engines.
The experience inside the Range Rover Velar is now an even calmer sanctuary with the addition of Active Road Noise Cancellation. The intelligent technology works like a pair of high-end noise cancellation headphones, constantly monitoring vibrations from the road surface and calculating the opposite phase sound wave needed to remove the noise heard by the occupants.
A new Cabin Air Filtration system enhances the relaxing and clean sanctuary inside Velar, reducing levels of harmful particulates, pollen and even odours. The new system – introduced in addition to the existing Cabin Air Ionisation feature – filters out fine particulate matter, allergens, pollen and even strong smells.
Also available is the new second-generation wearable Activity Key, which can totally replace the traditional key fob when necessary. The water-resistant and shock-proof wrist device now incorporates an LCD watch and allows customers to start, stop, lock and unlock the vehicle, with no need to take a traditional key fob out with them.
