chosen for the fourth model in the Range Rover family. It goes all the way back to 1969 when the original Range Rover prototypes were built and named Velar. The name was used to hide the identity of the 26 pre-production units of the original Range Rover. Velar derives from the Latin word “velaris” which means to veil or cover.
