Land Rover starts testing the Electric Defender image

The British based automaker Land Rover has currently started testing the brand new Electric Defender, with the model being planned to give birth to a final production vehicle.

After it was officially presented to the public, in a world premiere, during the Geneva Motor Show, the brand new Land Rover Electric Defender is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the help of a few images, which are showing the model while it was being tested publically.

“The first Electric Defender has started work at the Eden Project near St Austell in Cornwall in an inaugural real world trial of its capabilities. Unveiled at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, the Land Rover Electric Defender is a pioneering research project into the electrification of an all-terrain vehicle”, as the carmaker is saying in its official press release.

The Land Rover Electric Defender is coming with a 27 kWh lithium-ion battery which is powering the electric motor. The total output generated stands at 94 HP (70 kW) and the peak torque at 330 Nm (243 lb-ft). The top speed achieved by the Electric Defender is 112 km/h (70 mph) and, on a single charge, the range is 100 km (62.5 miles).
