Range Rover has unveiled its 2021 Velar, upgrading the all-wheel drive with a hybrid powertrain this time round.

Replacing its previous supercharged V6, Range Rover is now offering the sleek model in three trims — the S, the R-Dynamic and the R-Dynamic HSE — using a new hybrid powertrain developed based on the automaker’s turbocharged “Ingenium” I6 engine. The first two trims rely on the P430, which produces 335 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque, while the performance trip gets a P400, capable of pushing out a superior 395 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque. Range Rover says this last model can make 0-60 mph in just 5.2 seconds.

The tech upgrades don’t just stop at the new powertrain — the car’s interior is now equipped with the company’s new Pivi Pro infotainment system, utilizing 10-inch touchscreen units with a faster and more accurate response. You’ll also get an active road noise cancellation system, an option advanced cabin air filtration system, and a second-generation “Activity Key” that’s paired with your car’s security system.

For those interested, the 2021 Range Rover Velar will arrive in the first quarter of 2021, with prices starting at $56,900 USD.

Elsewhere in the automotive world, Elon Musk has hinted at a possible Tesla hatchback.
