Check out Electric Classic Cars: electriccla...

It’s time for an awesome petrol vs electric tug-of-war!

Mat’s got hold of the new Land Rover Defender 90 and he’s facing off against a classic Defender… That’s powered by the same Tesla battery from a Model S!

So how do they compare on paper? Well starting with the Defender 90, it’s packing a 3-litre straight-six turbo diesel under the bonnet which can produce 250hp & 570Nm of torque! It arrives with all-wheel drive, along with a low range mode - perfect for a tug of war!

As for the class Defender, the engine’s been ripped out and replaced with a 100kWh battery pack! As a result, it now puts down 450hp & 450Nm of torque.

Think it’s out of its depth? Well trust us, you’ll need to keep watching… We may have a little surprise in store 😉

    If my old Austin Champ was there , it would pull all three Landrovers back ends off together . The shear power and torque of the Rolls Royce engine and the weight of the Champ itself would be too much for the flimsy Land Rover .

    I feel like those kinds of comparisons aren't as exciting as the drag races because basically the heavier car almost always wins. No (normal) car can actually put down several hundred horsepower offroad so the two main things are torque and much more important grip, which is heavily benefited by weight. So offroad the car that is going to win will almost always be the heavier of the two.
