       This standard Defender TD5 is now powered by electric goodness, in the form of a Tesla Model 3 motor. Its owner came to us having never owned a Land Rover before, so we went out and purchased the donor vehicle on his behalf, electrified it and now he drives it in and out of London on a regular basis, ULEZ and tax free! Cosmetic upgrades are upcoming, as is a full respray, so it won’t be long until this is a fully restored electric Defender, one of the few in the world!
