Loses all its old world charm and character.

Suits Mahindra, in a way.

This ensures greater sales of Thar, overseas.

Jaguar Land Rover to end European production of Defender model

jlr1.jpg

Great Britain's great off-roader will be ending production in 2015, 67 years after it started rolling out of factories. And although that name "Defender" has only been in use since 1990, the vehicle that's worn it and its rough-and-tumble, rural nature can be traced all the way back to the original Series I Land Rover, from 1948.

The last of the models will roll off the production line at the company's Solihull factory in the West Midlands.

The company has taken the decision to halt the model in response to the tougher environmental and emissions laws across the world.

Jaguar Land Rover, however, is preparing a new successor, which will feature a sporty beach-buggy style. A prototype successor was introduced at the Los Angeles motor show.

A Jaguar Land Rover spokesman confirmed that the production of Defender will stop at the end of 2015.

To pay their respects, JLR drew a giant outline of the SUV in the sand at Red Wharf Bay in Anglesey, Wales- the place where the model was first imagined by Maurice & Spencer Wilks in 1947. Six Defenders drew the outline by driving with 12-foot agricultural harrows attached to them.

But the British company has confirmed the consideration of overseas production. Any continuation would see low volume production maintained for selected fleets and special vehicle applications for sale outside the EU.

Next-generation Land Rover Defender SPIED testing with new body

2020-Land-Rover-Defender-Spyshot-1.jpg

The next-generation Land Rover Defender has just inched a step closer to production. A new test mule of the off- roader has been spied testing with a new body. What this also means is that the next-gen Defender has finally ditched the Range Rover body that it has been testing with for many months now.

New 2020 Land Rover Defender: interior spied

land-rover-defender-1.jpg


These are our first interior spy shots of the new Land RoverDefender and they give us our best indication yet of the new model’s cabin design. They come in the wake of a sneaky instrument binnacle snapshot, which detailed the new SUV’s exterior styling in full, months ahead of the car’s planned launch date.

Technology-wise, the new Defender’s interior will take a big step up over that of its predecessor, with a large central screen and a digital instrument binnacle, much like the system fitted to the latest Land Rover Discovery. Like the old model, the Defender will retain its chunky, practical heater controls and traditional rotary volume knob.

2020 Land Rover Defender Spotted Testing At The Nurburgring Circuit



The Land Rover Defender is an SUV meant for the outdoors and not really expected to be a pro on a race track. However, Land Rover is probably aiming to make the upcoming Defender more versatile. The latest spy shots suggest that the British automaker is working to make the next-generation Defender more stable on the road as well. A test mule of the 2020 Defender was spotted testing at the Nurburgring circuit and this time it has been spotted with a little less camouflage.

The Land Rover Defender is one of the cult brands and the company wants to make sure that the new model is relatable to its predecessor. The company recently conducted a conference from where a set of images have surfaced online. The documents confirm that the Defender will be offered in three sizes and there will be one variant with eight-seat configuration.
