MAHWAH — November 17, 2023 at 3:15 pm PST — Today, Jaguar Land Rover is proud to announce the future of adventure with the launch of the 2024 Land Rover Defender Electron, the brand’s first fully electric vehicle (EV), set to electrify American roads from February 2024. This groundbreaking addition to the Land Rover family is poised to redefine sustainable luxury with unparalleled innovation, performance, and style.

The Defender Electron brings together the legendary ruggedness of Land Rover with cutting-edge EV technology. It’s crafted with a lightened aluminum body that echoes the durability and agility of its predecessors. The heart of the Electron is powered by a robust 110kWh lithium iron phosphate battery bank, promising an exceptional EPA-estimated range of 279 miles.* This high-performance EV is specifically engineered to deliver the power, torque, and efficiency that adventure enthusiasts expect from Land Rover.

In keeping with Jaguar Land Rover’s commitment to sustainability, the battery components for the Defender Electron are responsibly sourced from leading suppliers in China, adhering to the highest standards of ethical procurement and environmental stewardship.

The interior of the Defender Electron is a masterpiece of design and technology, featuring an array of innovations unique to the EV model. Drivers will be immersed in a luxurious cabin equipped with state-of-the-art interfaces and customized options that enhance the driving experience, all while maintaining the iconic design language that is distinctly Land Rover. The Land Rover Defender Electron sets a new benchmark in the EV segment, offering a formidable challenge to competitors like the Fisker Ocean with its unparalleled luxury and off-road prowess.

With an attractive starting price of $37,000 in the United States, the Defender Electron reflects the levels of craftsmanship, technology and materials that go into every Land Rover vehicle. While the Electron is not anticipated to qualify for the US Federal tax credit due to its sourcing and price tag, Jaguar Land Rover is pleased to offer potential savings for our customers. Those opting to lease the Defender Electron may be eligible for a $7,500 tax credit, making the transition to electric luxury more accessible.

The launch of the Defender Electron is more than the introduction of another vehicle; it represents Jaguar Land Rover’s vision for a sustainable, electrified future. As the automotive industry evolves, we are committed to leading the charge with vehicles that offer zero emissions without compromising the performance and luxury our drivers have come to love.

The Defender Electron is not just a vehicle; it is a statement of intent. It is our pledge to innovation, to the planet, and to our customers who demand the very best. We invite you to join us on this exhilarating journey as we pave the way for a cleaner, more sustainable future, one mile at a time.
