Land Rover win at the World Car Awards 2018

Its official The Range Rover Velar is the most beautifully designed car on the planet!

The Range Rover Velar won the World Car Design of the Year title at the 2018 World Car Awards in April.

The Velars was commended for its distinctive design features, perfectly optimised proportions and a stunning silhouette. Its super-slim Matrix Laser-LED headlights, flush deployable door handles and sleek Touch Pro Duo infotainment are all hallmarks of Range Rover’s reductionist design philosophy.  It brings glamour, modernity and elegance to the Range Rover family, and offers a unique combination of design excellence and engineering integrity. 

Dr Ralf Speth, Jaguar Land Rover CEO, said: “The Range Rover Velar is an outstanding, superior SUV. Compelling modernity, eye‑catching design, innovative Touch Pro Duo infotainment technology and a clear focus on sustainability – what a combination. This product speaks for itself. F‑TYPE, Evoque, F‑PACE and now the Range Rover Velar wins the World Car of the Year design award. This means a lot to us. I feel very honoured and I want to thank all jury members for their trust and support in encouraging the Land Rover team to continue on their unique path. I also want to thank our Velar team for their passion and commitment, for going the extra mile to move boundaries for extraordinary solutions.” 

Gerry McGovern, Chief Design Officer, Land Rover, said: “The continued evolution of our design philosophy is driven by a relentless focus on creating highly desirable vehicles our customers will love for life. The Range Rover Velar brings a new dimension of modernity to the Range Rover family with an abundance of innovative technologies, all making this vehicle a joy to drive and be driven in.  We’re honoured that the jury recognised the tireless endeavours of our designers and engineers in delivering a vehicle with compelling design, tailored technology and relevant innovation which come together to create a vehicle of instant desirability.” 

This Range Rover Velar beat the Volvo XC60 and the Lexus LC 500 to take the World Car Design of the Year award. The votes came from the World Car Awards jury, comprising 82 influential motoring journalists from 24 countries. 

Built in Great Britain

This is an amazing achievement for Land Rover and just goes to show that Britain stands among the leaders in design, engineering and manufacturing in the car world! JGS4X4 think the Velar delivers practicality, connectivity and capability we all come to expect from the Range Rover family.
