The new Range Rover Velar made a spectacular U.S. debut with an exclusive live online performance from Ellie Goulding, who also became the first person to drive the Velar when she arrived in Manhattan.
The new Range Rover Velar made a spectacular U.S. debut with an exclusive live online performance from Ellie Goulding. The chart-topping singer's New York show preceded a charity auction of the hotly anticipated new mid-size SUV at the East Side House Settlement Annual Gala.

Ellie Goulding was the first person to drive the new Range Rover Velar in New York
Goulding brought a touch of British glamour to the Velar's U.S. launch party when she arrived in Manhattan – the Metropolitan home of Range Rover – to be the first person to drive the new Velar and to sing for a global online audience. Her performance of 'Love Me Like You Do' opened the reveal event and was shown live on her Facebook page.

Ellie said: "I have always been a big Range Rover fan and it was a pleasure to be a part of its launch here in the U.S. Even more rewarding to be supporting a local charity that improves over 10,000 lives every year in one of my favourite cities."

A Range Rover Velar will be auctioned at the East Side House Settlement charity gala, a preview of the 2017 New York International Auto Show, at the Jacob Javits Center on 13th April. The winning bidder will be among the first customers in the world to take delivery of the highly coveted new vehicle. Proceeds from the gala will benefit the East Side House Settlement, a non-profit organisation providing education and social services in the Bronx and north Manhattan.
