Based on leaked information that surfaced last month, the price of the Range Rover Velar will start at INR 79.xx lakhs for the entry level S trims of the 2.0 L petrol and diesel variants. The top-of-the-line Range Rover Velar 3.0 HSE will cost INR 1.18 Crore ex-showroom.

All variants get an 8-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive as standard. The range topping Range Rover Velar 3.0 diesel will do 0-100 km/h in 6.5 seconds and hit a top speed of 241 km/h.
Overseas, the Velar features full Matrix-Laser LED headlights with signature daytime running lights, flush deployable door handles, 22-inch wheels and LED tail lights.
