The carmaker had announced prices last year, in December, and now the Velar is officially on sale in India. Prices range from ₹78.83 lakh to ₹1.37 crore (ex-showroom, India), and the car is available in a total of 25 trims.
There are three engines to choose from - a 179hp, 2.0-litre diesel, a 250hp, 2.0-litre petrol and a 300hp, 3.0-litre V6 diesel motor. The 3.0-litre diesel also comes in a top-spec First Edition trim.
The company’s new Ingenium petrol motor will debut on this car, and is expected to replace the current 240hp, 2.0-litre petrol motor in JLR’s engine line-up. The company says the new engine delivers up to 25 percent more power and uses 15 percent less fuel.
This car also comes with off-road technology - Hill Descent Control (HDC) as standard, the Terrain Response 2 system and an active rear-locking e-differential. Power from the engine is channelled to all four wheels via a standard ZF-sourced eight-speed automatic.
This car is positioned between the Evoque and the Range Rover Sport, and is a five-seater. On the inside, there’s a Touch Pro Duo infotainment system that uses two 10-inch touchscreens. There are more screen based interfaces inside in the interest of reducing the number of physical buttons.
