Land Rover Defender Electric: Current affair

Driving it takes some getting used to. I have to turn on the ignition, wait for the needle in the battery gauge to move to full, put it in Drive and slowly let go of the brake. And the scenery around me starts moving. The only sounds I hear are of birds chirping, and the only sensation I feel is that of motion. After just having driven Defenders from all eras, it’s strange to drive one that doesn’t vibrate.

The Electric needs you to plug into an electric 3 kW socket and wait for 10 hours to charge. If you have a fast-charger of 7 kW, make that four hours.
