New Range Rover Velar debuts

By CARSIFU | 6 February 2023

LONDON: Land Rover has launched the new Range Rover Velar.

It is available to order now, priced from £54,045 (RM278,000) in the UK.

A new grille combines with the characteristic floating roof, unbroken waistline and flush deployable door handles that define the world’s most desirable luxury SUV family.

New super-slim Pixel LED headlights provide a technical, jewel-like appearance and optimised visibility while the exterior is enhanced by a new lower rear bumper and dark accents.

The Velar pioneered Range Rover’s reductive design philosophy and it takes this approach to a new level inside. The new single floating 11.4-inch curved glass touchscreen is integrated into the centre console, providing immediate and intuitive control of all key vehicle functions1.

A full suite of technologies promotes passenger comfort and wellbeing, making the mid-size luxury SUV even more desirable. The Velar also offers the quietest vehicle in its class for road noise, thanks to refinement technologies including the pioneering Active Road Noise Cancellation system.


The plug-in electric hybrid Velar is more capable and flexible than ever, with a greater pure-electric driving range of up to 64km, thanks to a larger 19.2kWh battery pack, while the choice of highly advanced petrol and diesel engines feature mild hybrid technology for assured refinement and fuel efficiency.

Clients can choose from Velar S, Dynamic SE, Dynamic HSE and Autobiography.

The new Velar was first unveiled to the world on the official Range Rover TikTok channel on Feb 1.

Already one of the most popular vehicles on TikTok with over 5.2 billion views of #RangeRover, the channel features exclusive insight into the modern luxury brand.

The P400e electric hybrid provides the best of all worlds, combining a 105kW electric motor with an Ingenium petrol engine.

The balance of electric-only driving and petrol performance means the Velar P400e is suited for short urban trips and longer journeys. It has an expected real-world range of up to 51km - enough to ensure the average daily distance driven in a Velar could be done with zero tailpipe emissions. For longer journeys, the plug-in hybrid powertrain provides a combined real-world 684km of petrol and electric range.


Using electric power alone, it can drive for up to 64km, while overall CO2 emissions are 38g/km on the WLTP cycle, with fuel consumption of 1.6l/100km (176mpg). The electric-only range has increased by over 20 per cent from the previous 53km, thanks to its larger 19.2kW battery.10

With a combined 404PS and 640Nm of torque from its 300PS 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine and 105kW electric motor, the P400e is capable of accelerating from 0-100kph in 5.4 seconds, with a 209kph top speed. It can also travel on electric power alone up to 140kph.

The P400e is one of few plug-in electric hybrid vehicles capable of rapid DC charging, with a 0-80 per cent charge possible in as little as 30 minutes away from home using a 50kW charger. At home, it can charge from 0-100 per cent using a 7kW AC charger in around two and a half hours.

The latest generation of Ingenium petrol and diesel engines are available with 48-volt MHEV technology for enhanced efficiency and power delivery, using a Belt integrated Starter Generator (BiSG) to harvest energy usually lost under deceleration.

It is stored in a 48-volt lithium-ion battery beneath the rear loadspace. It can redeploy the energy to assist when accelerating, while also delivering a more refined and responsive start-stop system.

The 3.0-litre straight-six Ingenium petrol engine is available in two power outputs. The P340 delivers 340PS and 480Nm of torque, with acceleration from 0-100kph in 6.3 seconds. The more powerful P400 delivers 400PS and 550Nm of torque, with acceleration from 0-100kph in 5.5 seconds with CO2 from 219g/km.10

The 2.0-litre four-cylinder now features a new smoother-shifting automatic eight-speed transmission. TheP250 provides 250PS and 365Nm of torque, with 0-100kph in 7.5 seconds, CO2 emissions from 211g/km and fuel consumption up to 9.3l/100km.


The 3.0-litre straight-six D300 diesel engine produces 300PS and 650Nm of torque to deliver powerful performance, with acceleration from 0-100kph in 6.5 seconds. Series sequential turbos and an advanced after-treatment system are fitted, with CO2 emissions from 188g/km and fuel consumption of 7.2l/100km.

The 2.0-litre, four-cylinder D200 Ingenium diesel engine produces 204PS with CO2 emissions from 168g/km and fuel consumption of up to 6.4l/100km.
