There’s no denying the fact that the Land Rover Defender has been a success for the premium British SUV brand not just globally, but in the Philippines as well. Just over a year after selling the 200th Defender locally, they’ve managed to sell another 200 in just a span of 1 year.
That’s right. All British Cars, Inc., has already sold 400 Land Rover Defenders since its launch in 2020 and just a year after selling 200 units. To further boost the appeal of the Defender, there’s now a total of 18 variants to choose from thanks to the addition of a new plug-in hybrid P400e variant.
For those wanting to dive into the world of electrification, the Land Rover Defender P400e is so far only available for the Defender 110 five-door, five-seater model. Four accessory packs are also available: Urban, Country, Adventure, and Explorer. With the P400e, you get a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder gasoline engine and an electric motor that when combined has a total output of 404 horsepower and 640 Nm of torque. This enables a 0-100 kph time of just 5.6 seconds, while it can drive in pure electric mode for 51 kilometers at speeds of up to 140 kph.
The Land Rover Defender 110 P400e can be charged via a typical household socket, which takes 9 hours. Charging it via a 7 kW AC wall charger brings this down to 2 and a half hours, while a 50 kW DC fast charger can do the same duty in just 30 minutes.
By launching the P400e, the D240 has now been discontinued for the Defender 110 model range. Here are the following prices for the Defender 110 P400e:
- Defender 110 SE P400e: P8,890,000
- Defender 110 SE P400e Urban: P9,030,000
- Defender 110 SE P400e Country: P9,080,000
