The beginnings of Range Rover

The brand has continued to evolve since the appearance of the first Range Rover in 1970. Range Rover is the most luxurious SUV in the world and is distinguished by a great level of sophistication, inherent off-road capabilities and inspirational design, as well as technological innovations.

1969 - Range Rover Velar prototype

The first Range Rover was a closely guarded secret. His prototype was called "Velar". This name comes from the Italian word "velare", meaning cover or cover. Designers and engineers involved in the creation of this revolutionary new vehicle gave this name to hide its identity. The first 26 prototypes even carried a badge with this name.

1970 - the first production Range Rover with three-door body

After successfully testing the Velar concept vehicle, the first Range Rover was shown to the world. It met with widespread recognition due to the rare combination of off-road capabilities and elegant design. It was the first vehicle to offer permanent 4-wheel drive, a split boot lid, a bonnet that opens to the front and a contoured side line over the entire length.
