This exact car was £50,000

Built Q1 2024.

This 1991 Defender hasn’t been restored unlike many of our other projects. Although sporting a galvanised chassis she’s an honest, well-used Land Rover. She lives down in Cornwall and is used for jobs a Defender was designed for: beach runs, towing, off-roading and touring! We don’t restore vehicles so will leave the rusty doors to the owner of the vehicle who too loves to tinker with his Land Rover, something we haven’t taken away from him by electrifying it! She’s now reliable, faster and much more efficient and economical to run!

  • A Tesla Model 3 motor is longitudinally mounted in the gearbox tunnel, sending drive to front and rear differentials which maintains constant four-wheel drive. These motors are up to 280 horsepower and eliminate the need for an original gearbox or transfer box.
  • The Tesla motor is completely rebuilt with new internal gear sets, bearings and oil, a new limited slip differential, output shafts and an Ingenext control system.
  • Although unavailable new, using the Tesla Model 3 motor gives us complete confidence in reliability and engineering design from the leading OEM electric vehicle manufacturer. We no longer use the Tesla Model S motor due to far inferior efficiency and reliability, as well as being a far older design.
  • The control system is built by Ingenext in Canada and allows for connection to a mobile app to adjust power modes and throttle sensitivity.

Battery Pack:

  • 55kWh of brand new S-Volt (European) batteries are mounted in an engine bay mounted Universal Battery Pack, manufactured by Fellten in Bristol, UK.
  • Fellten are clear market leaders in EV battery pack technology. They produce high numbers of OEM quality battery systems which are shipped worldwide and conform to various regional regulations and standards.
  • By utilising the Fellten Universal Battery Pack we can offer a very high quality, robust battery system backed by a 3-year manufacturer warranty, this would be very complex to produce in-house. More information is available on their website.
  • Batteries run at 400 volts, are water cooled and monitored using state of the art battery management systems and safety software, built into the battery box and managed solely by the Fellten software team.


  • Charging is possible from any EV charge point, as well as from a 3-pin plug at home, both Type 2 (Europe) and Type 1 (USA) sockets are available.
  • Super fast DC charging allows for a 45 minute full charge, with a 0-80% time of around 25 minutes. This is only available from CCS public charge points such as those at service stations and petrol stations.
  • Standard AC charging allows for an 8 hour full charge, these chargers can be installed at home or are often found in carparks or on lamp posts.

Further Information:

  • Steering as standard has been upgraded to electric hydraulic power steering.
  • Gauges have been swapped for custom made dials, showing speed, current, temperature, and state of charge.
  • A 3kW heater provides cabin heating through original ducting.
