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The standard diesel engine and gearbox have been replaced by a 70kW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.
NEW 2014 Volvo S60, S80, V60, V70, XC60 and XC70
The fuel consumption of the 115 hp, four-cylinder D2 diesel in the new
Volvo S80 with a manual gearbox is now down to a class-leading 4.1 l/100 km
(EU Combined, preliminary figures), which translates into CO2 emissions of
108 g/km - unthinkable in a car of this size only a few years ago. The
corresponding figures with the automatic gearbox are 4.1 l/100km and 109
g/km (preliminary figures). To emphasise the scale of the engineers'
achievement, this is the same CO2 emission level for Volvo's largest saloon
as for the company's smallest car, the C30 DRIVe, only three years ago.
The new Volvo V70 D2 has class-leading fuel consumption at 4.2 l/100 km
(111 g/km) with the manual and 4.3 l/100 km (112 g/km) with the automatic
gearbox (preliminary figures).
The automatic D3 (136 hp) and D4 (163 hp) versions of the Volvo S80 now
have CO2 emissions of 129 g (4.9 l/100 km). The corresponding figures for
the V70 D3 and D4 are 130 g (4.9 l/100 km).
In the new Volvo XC70, both the D5 (215 hp) and the D4 (163 hp) versions
with manual gearbox and All Wheel Drive come with fuel consumption at 5.3
l/100km (139 g/km).
The S80 with the 1.6-litre GTDi (Gasoline turbocharged Direct Injection) engine T4 (180 hp)
and automatic gearbox has fuel a consumption of 7.1 l/100km (165 g/km). The
corresponding figure for the V70 T4 is 7.2 l/100 km (168 g/km).
The automatic D3 (136 hp) and D4 (163 hp) versions of the new Volvo S60 and
V60 now come with CO2 emissions of 129 g/km (4.9 l/100 km).
The new Volvo XC60 has also been improved, with both the D5 (215 hp) and
the D4 (163 hp) versions with a manual gearbox and All Wheel Drive,
delivering a combined fuel consumption of 5.3 l/100 km (139 g/km).
Top Gear - Mercedes G63 AMG 6x6 (SE21E04)
Those flimsy little track toys not doing it for you? How about this then --
it's the 6x6 version of the Mercedes G63 AMG.
Yes, an AMG V8-powered version of the G-Wagon with six-wheel drive. Hammond
is the lucky boy testing it in Dubai.
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.

MONSTER: The Brabus B63S 700 6x6! - IAA Frankfurt 2013 (1080p Full HD)
Recently Mercedes-Benz launched the 6x6 version of the G63 AMG. Of course
Brabus couldn't wait to get their hands on it and went to work! Result: The
Brabus B63S 700 6x6! A true MONSTER!
Brabus lends the most exclusive G-Class of all times even more punch and
heavenly increased (544bhp to 690bhp) the power of this 6x6 Machine with a
5.5-liter V8 Biturbo with Brabus
B63S-700 engine. The torque got a pretty good improvement as well: 561nm to
708nm ! To realize this enormous power increase by 154 bhp, the peripherals
of the V8 are modified extensively.
The six-wheel drive powerhouse weighing around four tons sprints from 0 to
100 km/h (62 mph) in just 7.4 seconds. The top speed is limited
electronically to 160 km/h (100 mph) due to the 37-inch off-road tires.
As a contrast to the striking black, chrome and carbon-fiber Brabus
exterior, the Brabus interior designers picked a fiery red Mastik
What do you think of this 6x6 G-Class by Brabus? Would you spend 410.000
euros on it? At least it will really take you anywhere you want to go.. and

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class or G-Wagen (as it was called from 1979 to 1994),
short for Geländewagen (or cross-country vehicle), is a four-wheel drive
vehicle / sport utility vehicle (SUV) produced by Steyr-Puch (now Magna
Steyr) in Austria for German automaker Mercedes-Benz. The G-wagen is
characterized by its boxy styling and body-on-frame construction. It uses
three fully-locking differentials, one of the few vehicles to have such a
feature. Despite the introduction of an intended replacement, the unibody
crossover SUV Mercedes-Benz GL-Class in 2006, the G-Class is still in
production and is the longest produced Mercedes-Benz in Daimler's history,
with a span of 32 years.
The G-class was developed as a military vehicle from a suggestion by the
Shah of Iran (at the time a great shareholder) to Mercedes and offered
as a civilian version in 1979. The G-class replaced the cheaper Volkswagen
Iltis in 1990. In this role it is sometimes referred to as the "Wolf" and
LAPV Enok. The G-Class has been sold under the Puch name in certain
markets, and the Peugeot P4 is a variant made under license, with a Peugeot
engine and different parts.
In June 2012, the G-Class received some minor modifications to the
specification and engine range. The significant changes outside are that
the updated G-Class gets LED running lights; second, there are turn
indicators in its side mirrors; and third, the AMG gets a new bumper and
grille. The majority of the G-Class's upgrades reside under its hood and
behind its doors: a new interior, more modern amenities. Interior changes
include a re-sculpted dashboard and centre console, with relocated COMAND
screen, and a new colour multifunction screen to the gauge cluster. The
latest mbrace2 telematics system also is on board and now come standard
with Distronic adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, and updated
Parktronic backup sensors and rearview camera, together with a revised the
stability control to enable trailer stabilizing functionality.
The previous G55's supercharged 5.4-liter V-8 is replaced by a twin-turbocharged 5.5-liter V-8. Power is up by 44 hp
to 544, and torque is an equal 44 units, to 560 lb-ft. Like other AMG
Mercedes-Benz models with the new downsized V-8, the G63's "63"
nomenclature bears no connection to its actual engine displacement. The G63
also gets a new "Eco" engine stop-start system. Mercedes also fitted a
seven-speed automatic transmission in place of the G55's five-speed. For
many export markets, Mercedes-Benz introduced a new G65 AMG powered by a
twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter V-12. The
engine puts out 604 hp and gives a huge 738 lb-ft of torque.
