Get up close with Land Rover Defender, Range Rover PHEVs

Made to conquer terrains, paved or unpaved, Land Rover vehicles are now conquering the virtual world thanks to the first-ever virtual Manila International Auto Show called MIAS Wired.

Coventry Motors Corporation (CMC), the exclusive distributor of Land Rover vehicles in the country, highlights the newest offerings in the lineup: the return of the Defender SUV, as well as the PHEV versions of the new Range Rover and Ranger Sport.

Now solely available with a 2.0-liter D240 Ingenium turbo-diesel mill under its hood, the iconic Defender is back to satisfy off-roading enthusiasts in the country. It was made available for pre-order in November with the first batch of units coming in Q1 2021.

The diesel-powered Defender, available in 90 and 100 body types, can be had in four different packages that vary depending on the buyer’s preferences and intended usage. The packages include Urban, Country, Adventure, and Explorer, each spec’d with specific accessories for any type of adventure.

CMC also introduced Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) versions of the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport, marking the first time that electrified versions of the SUVs have been offered in the Philippines.

Paired with an electric motor, the PHEV system of both the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport promises fuel efficiency of up to 35.71 km/l, with a total of 700-km range in parallel hybrid mode. And since they’re plug-in hybrids, they are also capable to move in pure EV up to 50 kilometers. The 13-kWh high-voltage lithium-ion battery can be fully charged in 2 hours and 45 minutes.

The turbo 2.0-liter gasoline engine works in conjunction with an electric motor for a combined output of 404hp and 640Nm of pull. And since it’s partly electric, expect almost instantaneous torque from these SUVs.

Get to know these new Land Rover vehicles virtually through this year’s MIAS Wired and see where your next adventure will take you.
