  • JAPANESE

    Incorrect, but Range Rover fans in Japan are already thrilled about our newest model, as well as design mavens across the globe.

  • LATIN

    Spot on. The name “Velar” was derived from the Latin word “velare” to “veil” or “cover.” Of course, just last month, we “unveiled” our most refined and capable medium SUV.

  • ENGLISH

    Not even close, but here’s a fun fact. In English, “velar” relates to velum, and palatal velum is the soft tissue that makes up the back of the roof of the mouth.

  • FRENCH

    As the French say, “non,” but they did give us the word “velours” which is close to “velar” but “velours” will not be an available fabric in the interior of our new vehicle.
