Land Rover Defender Electric OFFROAD
The standard diesel engine and gearbox have been replaced by a 70kW
(94bhp), 330Nm electric motor twinned with a 300-volt, lithium-ion battery
with a capacity of 27kWh, giving a range of more than 50 miles. In typical,
low speed off-road use it can last for up to eight hours before recharging.
The battery can be fully charged by a 7kW fast charger in four hours, or a
portable 3kW charger in 10 hours.
The electric vehicles (EVs) retain the Defender's legendary four-wheel
drive system and differential lock. Because the electric motor delivers
maximum torque from the moment it starts, there's no need for gear shifting
and the transmission comprises a single speed, 2.7:1 reduction gearbox
combined with the existing Defender four-wheel drive system. A modified
version of Land Rover's Terrain Response® System has also been
The vehicles were developed by Land Rover's Advanced Engineering Team
following successful trials of the Defender-based electric vehicle, Leopard
1. The vehicles' capability has been tested in extreme and environmentally
sensitive conditions, demonstrating capabilities not shared by conventional
road-going EVs. Trials included pulling a 12-tonne 'road train' up a 13
percent gradient and wading to a depth of 800mm.
In keeping with Land Rover's 'Tread Lightly' philosophy the smooth,
low-speed capability of the electric drivetrain makes the Electric
Defenders especially well suited to climbing obstacles without damaging the
The battery weighs 410kg and is mounted in the front of the Defender in
place of the diesel engine. Kerb weight is 100kg more than a basic Defender
110 and ranges from 2055kg to 2162kg depending whether the body style is a
pick-up, hard top or station wagon.
All the major components in the electric powertrain - including the
battery, inverter and motor - are air-cooled rather than liquid cooled,
saving a considerable amount of weight and complexity and adding
robustness. Regenerative braking has been optimised to such an extent that
using Hill Descent Control, the motor can generate 30kW of electricity.
Because the battery technology can be charged very quickly at a rate of up
to twice its capacity of 54kW without reducing battery life, almost all of
the regenerated energy can be recovered and stored. Up to 80 percent of the
kinetic energy in the vehicle can be recovered in this way, depending on
"This project is acting as a rolling laboratory for Land Rover to assess
electric vehicles, even in the most arduous all-terrain conditions. It
gives us a chance to evolve and test some of the technologies that may one
day be introduced into future Land Rover models," said Antony Harper,
Jaguar Land Rover Head of Research.
Although there are no plans for the all-terrain Electric Defender to enter
series production, the seven EVs will go into service in specialist
applications later this year.

Mercedes-Benz Ener-G-Force Concept crushes the stand at the 2012 LA Auto Show
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The brand new Mercedes-Benz Ener-G-Force Concept
SUV looks like it could eat rocks for breakfast but in fact the beast
conceptually use a"hydro-tech converter" to convert water into hydrogen for
very green fuel cell power. Perhaps a better way to look at this crazy
earth roaming monster is as a concept that might in the year 2025 replace
the current G wagon. The Ener-G-Force is packed with new technology or at
least the ideas of new technology. Check out this exclusive TFLcar video to
learn more about this monster MB concept.
2014 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6X6 vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG! Head 2 Head Ep. 46
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman heads to Graz, Austria, the
home of one of the world's toughest off roaders - the Mercedes-Benz
G-Wagen. The last time a G63 appeared on Head 2 Head, it beat out the
all-new and quite excellent Range Rover Supercharged. This time, however,
the G63 faces even stiffer competition — another G63. Of course, this
particular G has an extra axle, because it's the $500,000+ G63 AMG 6x6!
Costing roughly twice as much as the awesome twin-turbo V-12 powered G65, the 6x6 is the ultimate
expression of the Gelandewagen... on paper. But is it actually any good? Is
the 6x6 as awesome as it looks, or is the regular G-Wagen just too well
thought out? And why is the 6-wheeled truck always jumping in the air like
that? Watch and find out!
Head 2 Head appears every other Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.
