Land Rover Defender Electric: Current affair

So what’s in all this for you? For one, apart from the silence and weirdness, this is a great car to have for short distances and for big private property, such as farmland or game reserve. For another, some part from this will likely go into Discoverys, Evoques and Range Rovers in the future. This Electric is definitely not for the long haul. But with regenerative braking, the Defender Electric might just be the best thing to go terrain bashing in; possibly even for a couple of days on one charge.
