Range Rover’s Velar model launch caused a bit of a stir in our loins. Designers from all disciplines cocked their heads at the fancy new body lines and UX designers gawped at the new IVIS called the InControl Infotainment system.
Land Rover USA (2017). Note this presents a left-hand drive demonstration of the Touch Pro Duo version of InControl.
Two touch display screens (the “Touch Pro Duo”) dominate the impression and the binnacle houses a bright display screen too (the “Interactive Driver Display”). Snatty stalk control buttons update dynamically with thumb swipes wafted across their surfaces.
Of note, Land Rover’s insistence on keeping the rotary gear selector on the Velar dissolved over time as the customers’ voice was listened to. For example, the Evoque 2019 model sports a gear shift stalk familiar to BMW.
