E.C.D. Florida-based Automotive Design is familiar with the classic Land Rover Defender. Previously, the company has already equipped brutal SUVs with some modern systems and a powerful V8. But this time, the specialists decided to switch the car to electricity.
E.C.D. Automotive Design has managed to make two “battery” Land Rover Defenders to date. Instead of an internal combustion engine, one electric motor from Tesla is installed here, which develops 450 hp. Thanks to the new power plant, you can accelerate to the first hundred in 5 seconds. Instead of a tank and an exhaust system, a battery pack is installed, which in total develops about 100 kWh. Power reserve – 354 kilometers on a single charge. In addition, both SUVs feature upgraded air suspension with BF Goodrich off-road tires.
The first SUV was named Britton. The car is painted in Cool Khaki Grey, which gives off a blue tint. Leather, beige fabric and wood are used for interior decoration.
The second restomod was named Morpheus. It differs from Britton with upgraded axles and a differential. However, the interior decoration is a little poorer.
Let’s give the floor to the co-founder of E.C.D. Automotive Design to Elliot Humble:
“At the end of the day, we do this out of a deep love for old Defenders and want to keep them on the road, modifying them to fit in with the modern pace of our customers’ lives. Do I need to tell you how to install an electric motor in a classic Defender or our team is world class and can breathe life into our clients’ wildest dreams.”
