2024 Range Rover Velar

2024 Range Rover Velar

This week, Land Rover announced the opening of customer orders for its updated 2024 Range Rover Velar. The five-seat, midsize-class Velar debuted in 2017 to fill the gap between brand’s compact Evoque and flagship Range Rover and Range Rover Sport. This proved to be a smart decision, at least at first, as more than 17,000 units found homes in 2018 and 2019. It has cooled considerably since then with just 8,565 models sold in 2022, though we’re not sure how much of that is due to waning demand or post-COVID supply-chain issues.
