JLR has been spotted testing a EV prototype for its Range Rover Velar luxury SUV. JLR plans to launch an electric version of its iconic Range Rover later this year, although it won’t be the car seen here. The electric Range Rover will match the design of its petrol sibling, perhaps with some modifications to the front to improve aerodynamic efficiency.

The car seen here is much lower and sleeker than the Range Rover, suggesting it could be the successor to the current Range Rover Velar. The Velar has been on sale since the 2018 model year and will soon need to be replaced. According to our photographer, the prototype appears to be longer than the current Velar and is likely long enough to accommodate a third row of seats.
