Need help buying your next car? Click the following link and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!

Check out Electric Classic Cars - electriccla...

We’re treating you to another Off-Road Challenge!

We’ve brought back the awesome Tesla-powered 2010 Land Rover Defender, and this time we’re putting it up against the brand new Defender 90!

This new Defender 90 has a 3.0-litre turbocharged diesel engine that can produce 250hp & 570Nm. It’s packed with incredible tech designed to make off-reading easier, including surface-studying cameras and terrain response. Will this give it the edge over its all-electric rival?

The electric Defender, meanwhile, has been fitted with the motor and inverter from a Tesla Model S. As a result, it can put down 450hp & 450Nm. But thanks to this conversion, it costs a staggering £150,000 - more than three times the starting price of the new Defender 90!!!

Not only are these two cars are going to duke it out in four off-road challenges, Mat’s also going to compare their exteriors, their interiors, and launch them both to 60mph. Stick with us to see which car comes out on top!

They did an amazing job with the old defender. I would actually like the old 1 with a diesel, not that the electric is bad it's just more practical to have a diesel or gas engine especially way out in the middle of nowhere. If you run out of gas or whatever at least someone can be some out to you. No one can actually bring a charge out to you. But again it's gorgeous.

Old one looks really aggressive and of course it performed well too in the video. But the new one looks better from front, its back is tacky. But I have always loved your presentation, your jokes, the vocabulary you use to talk about cars. It’s just impressive

Just imagine that Land Rover had spent some of that 3ton gross weight on EV tech 10 years ago. They could be leaders in the field by now, at least in off road tech. If a Farmer can do 200 miles in a day with no engine, no clutch, no gearbox, massive torque and traction and wade through rivers! Land rover really didn't innovate when they should have - what's the next innovation they are missing?

New ev are extremely silent because there are alot more sound proofing to the entire drivetrain or something and they do sound much more silent. This old ev sounds like a small rc car scaled up with a gearing that is making it very loud but very powerful for an ev. Offroad its awesome sounding but cruising down the road it would drive me mad because i already got tenitius and this would unfortunately make it worse.

the ev defender looks real good but I doubt it's really good at off-road, the lack of a low range could be a problem with a super fast revving electric motor

That’s alright if you’re farting about in an English countryside with an electric defender But if you wanna go out to the outback or to the African Safari where are you going to charge up your defender when you’re deep in the middle of brush or jungle ps. There is nowhere in England that you can travel without an electric power points and recharge but in the outback and the African jungle “where”

The new one looks slab-sided and a bit bland BUT I do think LR has done a decent job. This and the larger 5 door are the natural successors to the old Discovery rather than the jelly-mould they issued! As a Defender replacement, it is hugely expensive though, and, of course, they should do an all-electric one! Still think the SPECTRE looks the business :)

How was the electric range in the EV, especially off road? The Fast Lane tested the Jeep Wrangler 4xE and found that its electric range off-road was only 1/10 of its electric range on the road.
