The Land Rover Defender – one of the symbols of the SUV brand’s heroic history in the UK – will soon see a miniaturized version being launched within the next 4 years.
According to a very reliable source of UK magazine autocarA miniature version called the Land Rover Defender Sport will complete the company’s “Sport” lineup.
The group already has the Discovery Sport and the Range Rover Sport, but the Defender Sport emphasizes the off-road nature of these two urban-oriented models.
The Land Rover Defender Sport chassis of choice is the EMA type. The platform is one that was developed specifically for electric vehicles, which means the nameplate will not feature a petrol variant like the larger prototype.
The EMA will also serve as the basis for the next Land Rover Discovery Sport, Range Rover Evoque and Range Rover Velar.
The frame size of the Land Rover Defender Sport is estimated to be 4.6 meters long, 2 meters wide and less than 1.8 meters high.
One of the priority criteria of the Land Rover Defender Sport is its ability to operate off-road which is not inferior to the original. However, as with all other Land Rover sports models, the emphasis is on the comfort factor.
A pure electric version of the Defender will also be released around 2026, ahead of the launch of the Land Rover Defender Sport in 2027. However, this name will still have a gasoline version using semi-parallel hybrid technology as it still uses the same chassis. M.L.A.
