Land Rover Defender Safari EV concept revealed

It's always convenient on a safari to be able to sneak up quietly on the wildlife.

And that's what Land Rover is offering with this Defender Safari EV concept.

Developed locally in South Africa, in a partnership between the British automaker and local Land Rover specialist Barker Performance Products, the Land Rover Defender Safari EV concept features an air-cooled AC induction electric motor with an output of 59 kW (80 PS) and 330 Nm of torque.

A 27kWh, 300 V battery pack, supplied by European firm Axeon, assures the permanent all-wheel drive Defender a range of up to 80 km (50 miles) at speeds of up to 60 km/h (37 mph).

The Land Rover Defender EV Safari concept will make its debut at the Indaba 2011, a tourism event taking place this week (May 7 to 10) in Durban, South Africa.
