Defender

The ‘Black Pack’ and ‘Silver Pack’ – for Land Rover Defender. All Defender derivatives will also benefit from a suite of optional features including a new aluminium finish to the vehicle’s side runners, contrast finish leather seats, privacy glass and, for the first time, an ebony Alston headliner which brings a touch of luxury and prestige to this rugged legend. Defender derivatives are now available with the option of privacy glass. The option – standard on the black pack – is available on hard top variants with fixed panel sides and adds darkened glass to second row windows on the Station Wagon, as well as to the alpine light and rear quarter light windows. Due to visibility regulations the rear door retains its standard glass.

Black Pack – This pack features a Santorini black finish, which is applied to the roof, grille, grille surround, headlamp surrounds, wheel arches, ‘Defender’ bonnet script and interior facia. Privacy glass and an ebony Alston headliner lend the vehicle added visual drama.The black pack will be available with two wheel variations – a gloss black Sawtooth alloy wheel and a new gloss black heavy duty wheel. Silver Pack – The silver pack adds a bright Indus silver finish to the contrast roof, which is complemented with the same finish to the grille surround, headlamp surrounds and facia. The vehicle also features the Dual Finish alloy wheels as standard and a bright light pack incorporating white tail and indicator lights.

To improve the flexibility of these extensive personalisation options for Defender, a new finish will be available on the vehicle’s side runner. Painted silver, in contrast to the black side runner available on existing Defender vehicles, it is the perfect partner for customers opting to take the silver pack. Defender is now available with contrast leather premium seats, which feature Windsor leather inserts, and a choice of three colourways; Ebony/Pimento, Ebony/Tan or Ebony/Lunar. If specified, this theme is also continued through to the second and third row seats. To complete the look, the front centre stowage compartment features contrast leather highlights.

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.

The appeal of the Land Rover Defender has been strengthened with the opportunity for customers to enhance their driving comfort and also to personalise their vehicle with a range of contrast roof colours. Underpinned by the powerful 2.2-litre diesel engine and its go anywhere capability, the iconic Defender retains the rugged appeal that it’s always been famous for but now with even greater customer choice. A special ‘DEFENDER’ decal sits above the rear LED lights whilst the the jewel like design to the front lights is enhanced with Santorini Black headlamp surrounds in contrast to the body colour. This distinctive front end design is complemented with a body colour grille and gloss black Land Rover lettering on the bonnet. A rear step bumper assembly aids entry, exit and loading. Saw Tooth 16-inch alloy wheels and MTR off-road tyres complete the look giving the Defender Special Edition a powerfully strong and purposeful stance. A pure Ebony interior complements both the Orkney Grey and Nara Bronze with contrast Lunar stitching. The Land Rover logo is embossed on front headrests whilst carpet mats have the Defender logo woven in. To harmonise with the exterior of this special edition, the central switch panel matches the body colour of the vehicle with the same paint finish.
