At this you may be wondering why this new fourth model of the Range Rover is called the Velar. The origin of the Velar name dates back to the first prototypes of the Range Rover while being tested during the 1960s. As an attempt to hide the identity of the world’s first luxury SUV while under testing, developmental engineers chose to name it as the Velar, derived from the Latin Velare meaning to veil or cover.

And now, 48 years later the Velar name is all set to be officially added to the Range Rover model line-up.

Stay tuned to autoX for more details on the upcoming Range Rover Velar when the ‘Velar’ will officially be lifted off the newest member of the iconic Range Rover family.
