Land Rover is offering the 2021 Land Rover Range Rover Velar with a balance of sophisticated design and new intelligent technology, mild and plug-in hybrid engine choices now.

The 2021 model offers new exterior color options, including exclusive Lantau Bronze on the ‘Range Rover Velar Edition’; all-wheel drive capability on every terrain; new Pivi infotainment, Active Road Noise Cancellation; new Cabin Air Filtration.

Plug-In Hybrid

The new Range Rover Velar plug-in hybrid provides an all-electric range of 33 miles (53 km), fuel economy of up to 130 mpg (2.2 l/100 km), and CO2 emissions of 49 g/km.

A new 2.0-liter four-cylinder P400e plug-in hybrid powertrain offers a smooth drive. It produces combined 399 hp and 472 lb-ft (640 Nm) of torque from its 296-hp gasoline engine and 105-kW electric motor.

The Velar PHEV accelerates from zero to 60 mph in 5.1 seconds (0-100 km/h in 5.4 seconds).

A 17.1-kWh lithium-ion battery is located under the trunk’s floor. You can charge it to 80 percent in just half an hour from a fast DC charge point, or 1 hour 40 min using a standard 7-kW wallbox.

Mild Hybrid

48-volt mild hybrids are also available across the lineup.

For the first time, Land Rover introduces a new family of 3.0-liter straight-six Ingenium engines on the 2021 Range Rover Velar.

The latest generations of efficient gasoline and diesel engines are available with a 48-volt mild hybrid (MHEV) technology, which comprises a belt integrated starter generator.

The available variants are a D300 (296 hp) diesel, and two gasoline ones – a P340 (335 hp) and a P400 (395 hp) generating 354 / 405.7 lb-ft (480 Nm / 550 Nm) torque, respectively. Each comes with all-wheel drive and a standard air suspension.

The P400 makes a 0-60 mph sprint in 5.2 seconds (0-100 km in 5.5 sec).

The D300 diesel generates 479.4 lb-ft (650 Nm), and offers 0-60 mph in 6.1 seconds (0-100 km/h in 6.5 sec), with fuel economy of up to 38 mpg (7.4 l/100km), 194g/km CO2.

Additionally, the next-gen four-cylinder Ingenium D200 (201 hp diesel) comes on the 2021 Range Rover Velar: more powerful, with lower CO2 emissions and improved fuel efficiency.

The company offers the engine with the same 48-volt mild hybrid system, with CO2 from 165g/km, and fuel economy of up to 44.9 mpg (6.3 l/100km).

The 2021 Land Rover Range Rover Velar is available to order in Great Britain, it costs from £46,110 there. 

The U.S. pricing will be announced later. Unfortunately, the new plug-in hybrid version won’t be on offer in the USA, at least so far, but the mild hybrid (P340) is available.
