    system A modified version of Land Rover s Terrain Response System has also been incorporated 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 ground unnecessarily 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 conditions 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 Back Link to this article http 4wheeldrive co uk News Article View newsId 104 Latest news Land Rover Discovery Appeal Broadens With Launch Of Two Special Editions Land Rover continues to broaden the appeal of the Discovery with the launch of two new special editions the Landmark and the Graphite New distinctive exterior design features to both editions enhance the design of the fourth generation Discovery while unique interior touches to the Landmark bring more luxury and exclusivity Read more on Land Rover Discovery Appeal Broadens With Launch Of Two Special Editions RANGE ROVER EVOQUE CONVERTIBLE A CONVERTIBLE FOR ALL SEASONS Land Rover has unveiled the world s first luxury compact SUV convertible Range Rover Evoque Convertible combines the bold design and refinement of Evoque with comprehensive specification and a sophisticated folding roof to create a no compromise all season convertible Read more on RANGE ROVER EVOQUE CONVERTIBLE
