The owner of this now electric Defender has a lovely property in Kent, where the Landy takes care of all the hard labour that his Model X Tesla can’t handle! It moves horseboxes around, does tip runs and is an all round workhorse for the young family. It must be said that the kids are much more excited by this electric car, than the other (more boring) ones in the driveway! This is no Chealsea tractor, the paintwork is rugged and the interior basic and original, but that doesn’t take away from the charm that this EV Landy exudes!
