Land Rover Defender P400e plug-in is revealed

11th September 2020 | Steve Lumley

The line-up's new range-topper is the impressive plug-in Land Rover Defender P400e.


There's a new plug-in available for the Land Rover Defender called the P400e

It's the most fuel efficient and powerful Defender in the range with a power output of 404 PS and a 0 to 62 mph sprint time of 5.4 seconds.

More importantly, for those who are wanting to buy or lease the Land Rover Defender P400e plug-in is that the fuel economy is 85 mpg with emissions of just 74g/km.

New Defender’s all-electric driving range

The new Defender’s all-electric driving range is 27 miles with zero emissions, and it is available in five- or six-seat options.

The plug-in hybrid (PHEV) model is a key element to expanding the Defender's appeal to more drivers, Land Rover says.

Under the bonnet, there is a four-cylinder, 2.0-litre petrol engine mated to a 105kW electric motor.

Land Rover says that drivers can also use the all-electric function for off-roading with the immediate torque from the motor, making the vehicle even more capable than usual.

Battery for the Defender P400e

The battery for the Defender P400e is a 19.2kWh offering and will help the model reach a top speed of 130mph.

The P400e also features electronic air suspension and 20-inch alloy wheels as standard, plus the charging port is found on the vehicle's left-hand side.

A Mode 3 charging cable will be supplied as standard, and there is the option of a Mode 2 cable which will help recharge the battery quickly.

A Mode 3 charging cable will see the battery being recharged in two hours to 80% of its capacity, while a Mode 2 cable will take around seven hours.

The model also features regenerative braking to recuperate lost energy when braking and sending it to the battery.

The P400e also features three-zone climate control and privacy glass.

Changes to the Defender's diesel engines

Land Rover has also revealed changes to the Defender's diesel engines and there's a new Defender Hardtop for the commercial vehicle sector.

The new six-cylinder diesel engines that are joining the range offer smooth and strong performance.

Plus, the new X-Dynamic spec is now available on both the Defender 90 and 110.

Drivers get to enjoy a selection of interior and exterior design elements to help the Land Rover Defender 'stand out from the crowd'.

New customisation options added

Land Rover has also added new customisation options including a choice of contrasting roof finishes.

There is also, for the Defender 110, a folding fabric roof available for the first time.

The Defender 90 offers a suspension pack on its options list, as well as a Meridian sound system, premium LED headlights and a head-up display.
