The British based automaker Land Rover is planning to develop the new generation of the iconic Defender in India where the SUV could be made using parts from Tata Motors.
According to the guys at autocar.co.uk, the new generation of the Land Rover Defender has a huge chance of being manufactured in India, at the Tata Motors headquarters in Pune, India, and this isn’t the only worrying news. Our source is also telling us that that if the model will be made in India, Tata Motors will also use parts from its Aria SUV, so before you will be eaten by lions when it will go down in the middle of Africa, you will be eaten by tigers because it will also go wrong in India too.
If this plan of making the new Defender in India gets the green light, the model is expected to share the chassis and suspension parts with the Tata Aria SUV, while for styling, the designers will have to inspire from the DC concepts which were presented in 2011 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Besides the chassis and other parts, a new range of four-cylinder engines, in both petrol and diesel options, will also be shared by the new Defender and the local Aria SUV. Unfortunately we don’t have any more details on the model for now, but as you can see, everything is possible.
