Our electric Land Rover has had a motor and controller upgrade. It’s time to see what it can do, both on road and off road. We do a 0-60 mph test and take it into the hills of Wales to check that the off road ability of the Land Rover is still there. We also check that the regenerative braking effect of the electric motor is enough to act as a hill descent mode.
The Land Rover Defender is still 4 wheel drive, but now has a performance Tesla motor in it out of a Tesla Model S P100D, as well as the 100kWh battery pack out of the same Tesla. All the electrics are sealed so it can wade deeper than an ICE equivalent.
Is there a quicker 4×4 than this that can perform both on and off road?
