The new £45,000 Range Rover Velar has been launched at a star-studded bash after attracting more pre-sales than any other model in the firm’s history. The Velar takes it name from the original 1969 Range Rover prototype offering “luxury, refinement and all-terrain capability”.

The new mid-size Chelsea wagon was unveiled at a star-studded event held at London’s Design Museum attended by celebrities.

Prices for the Velar, which goes on sale in July, will start at £44,830 and rise to around £85,000 for the top-of-the-range, 155mph First Edition. The new model will fill the gap between the £30,000 Evoque and the £60,000 Range Rover Sport.

It has a clean, minimalist design with flush door handles super-slim LEDs, lots of glass, HD screens, wi-fi and tailored luxury.

Design boss Gerry McGovern said: “Just because it is glamorous it doesn’t mean it’s not tough.

“It still has all the capability you expect.

“People don’t need luxury vehicles. They desire them. And vehicles sell on design.”

The Velar is also designed to be responsible. It’s not quite vegan but you can opt for Kvadrat textile seats and trim, a micro-fibre suede made from recycled bottles. More pics below…
