    This should be one of the next Defender models but instead it's made by a small company in NorthEast USA.

    Full electric, no bling, simple.

    Update on new Defender

    "Land Rover is now wary of revealing concept cars for fear of the design being plagiarised, so it has decided against giving an early flavour of the Defender."

    I know they mean Chinese knock-offs, but this is also the reason the US Ford Explorer looks the way it does (2014 below, but same shape since 2012)



    Also - "What it must beat" - fails to mention the Jeep Wrangler. US sales will be instrumental in getting them over their 100,000 unit per year hurdle...and you can't offer a 4x4 in the US without it being compared to Jeep. I also have a hard time believing the camo'd cars are anything but test mule bodies and won't look like the final product....

    New Defender Silhouette

    Silhouette being shown in the JLR North America HQ:



    Compare how close the Disco's silhouette is to the actual Disco, and I think the new Defender is going to look quite good.

    That silhouette has been around for a while. Since 2015. Does bode well for the new Defender design.

    I see some new details though - squared wheel arches, maybe a Safari roof, perhaps more steeply raked windscreen...and if I squint really hard, Android Auto.

    ...It better have Android Auto. They need to dump ICTP. Confused

    I noticed Apple CarPlay too Wink

    ICTP is not that bad (when it works) and there’s no reason it can’t coexist with Android Auto and CarPlay. Many manufactures have their own system and support both.


    That image is a sand drawing on the beach at Red Wharf Bay on Anglesey in North Wales. Birth place of the Land Rover. I guess they didn’t have time to draw everything... before the tide came in.
