What language inspired the name of the newly revealed Range Rover “Velar”?
Incorrect, but Range Rover fans in Japan are already thrilled about our newest model, as well as design mavens across the globe.
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.

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.
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.
