It is known that Land Rover is preparing a new generation of Defender SUV models. Also, it was announced that the new model gets electrified drive. In addition, Land Rover has discovered that it will begin to sell electrified versions of its models. This information was revealed by the company when presenting the Range Rover Velar model. 2020 Land Rover Defender Electric should be one of the first such projects.
Defender will definitely get its electric version. However, it is not yet known when. Also, the company did not disclose any details. However, Jaguar-Land Rover has discovered that the sale of such vehicles will begin in 2020. The first specimens of such vehicles will be placed on the US market.
Defender Next Generation
Land Rover Defender, in retrospect, will no longer be offered. A brand new generation of models come with drastic changes. So this legendary SUV gets a new platform, a new design and new powertrain aggregates. The company decided on this move for many reasons. The primary reason is that the current model can not meet ever more stringent laws. First of all, it refers to the emission of hazardous gases into the atmosphere. Also, the legendary Defender faces the problem of fuel economy.
The new generation, announced as 2019 Defender, launches a completely new chapter in the history of this model. The next model will have nothing to do with what we are used to. Of course, besides the name. Great design and construction changes that will make this model loses all the charm that has charmed many decades. On the other hand, the company turns a new leaf and offers a vehicle that meets the current needs of customers in this segment.
In addition to a completely new design, the new Defender will offer new drives. New engines, and a new vehicle design, will make the vehicle more economical. After the introduction of the Range Rover Sport plug-in hybrid, there were speculations that the 2019 Land Rover Defender could get such a version. In the end, there is also the 2020 Land Rover Defender Electric, which should complete the offer of the new model.
Taking into account all the above, the new model could be very successful. However, the new generation will offer excellent off-road capabilities. We hope that in addition to the name ‘Defender’, the new model will bring at least a part of the heart, which has spoiled this model, through decades of its existence.
2020 Land Rover Defender Electric Release
As we mentioned, the company’s first electrified models come to the US market. The company’s plan is that such vehicles will be represented on the market by 2020. Given that there are indications that the 2020 Land Rover Defender Electric will be the first in a series of electric models of the company, its arrival is expected at the beginning of the next decade.
