Land Rover Defender 110 P400e (2020) – Dependent on a highly CO2-emitting range, the British firm undertakes the electrification of its models. The Land Rover Defender legend is no exception and offers the plug-in hybridization, a few months after its commercial launch.
The icon complies with environmental standards
A Defender PHEV, who would have believed it? However, this is the type of modern motorization that the new generation of adventurers allows themselves, thanks to their state-of-the-art base. An adaptation that the old opus would hardly have supported, based on an age-old ladder frame. The newcomer's monohull embarks a block 300 hp 4-cylinder petrol, and associates it with a electromotor developing 105 kW. A combination of horsepower mandates that allows the beast to enjoyabout 404 hp, and a generous couple of 640 Nm. Ideal for tackling the worst crossings but also to panic the lap times: the 0 to 100 km / is shipped in 5.6 s, when the top speed soars to 209 km / h. Did you say Defender?
43 km full electric
On the battery side, its capacity is 19.2 kWh. It allows a journey of approximately 43 km, and can exclusively power four-wheel drive, both in hostile terrain and in urban environments. In 7 kW configuration, the Land Rover Defender 110 P400e claims two hours to recover 80% of its autonomy. With the Combo plug in rapid charge, 30 minutes is enough to recover the same capacity.
Land Rover Defender 110 P400e price
Land Rover hopes to lower its average CO2 emissions, thanks to this new model. The British firm announces a average consumption of 3l / 100 km… On condition that you play the game to the fullest, by regularly recharging your battery. This has the consequence of dropping CO2 emissions at 74 g / km, in order to avoid any ecological penalty. However, the painful remains to be resolved. The price should be tough for those who are not already "free" in a 100% thermal version. Only unveiled in 5-door bodywork, for now, the Land Rover Defender 110 P400e should be exchanged for at least 80,000 €, according to our estimate.
