Land Rover launched the original Range Rover in 1970 and almost half a century later, it is set to unveil the fourth member of the Range Rover family on March 1, 2017.

Elegant simplicity, a visually reductive approach and pioneering consumer technology are the hallmarks of the new Range Rover Velar.

The Velar will be filling the gap between the Range Rover Evoque and the Range Rover Sport models.

As can be seen from the pre-launch images of the car, it will come with a panoramic glass roof which is impressive and it will also come with a large touchscreen infotainment system. As of now, there has been no confirmation on whether the Valer will come with a new drivetrain or not.

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.”

Claimed to be refined for every occasion and for every terrain, Velar uses unique sustainable materials and advanced engineering to continue Land Rover’s drive to go above and beyond.

The origin of the Velar name (pronounced vel-ar) dates back to the first Range Rover prototypes of the Sixties. When development engineers needed to hide the true identity of the 26 pre-production Range Rovers, they chose the name Velar, derived from the Latin 'velare' meaning to 'veil' or 'cover'.

Full details of the Range Rover Velar will be announced on 1 March 2017.
