Land Rover Defender Classic Goes Electric but at a Shocking Price

  • Twisted, a U.K.-based specialist in Land Rover modification, has turned its hand to electrifying the long-serving Land Rover Defender—not the new one, but any of the previous-generation models.
  • Twisted says that its models use the identities and chassis numbers of imported Defenders more than 25 years old and are registered in Virginia as reconstructed vehicles.
  • The North American Specification Defenders will be available in three bright colors and at the top end, cost more than $200,000.

    Being an early adopter of new technology tends to come at a high price, and that’s also true when it gets retrofitted into an old vehicle. While many will see the appeal of an EV version of the classic Land Rover Defender—the one that was last officially sold in the States in 1997—few will be able to contemplate one with a base price of $185,000. For those who can, it’s a rare opportunity to

    • The Model Y shakeup was followed by news that the Tesla stock price has once again shot up, making it worth $321 billion.

      2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA250 Gets a Price Hike

      • Pricing for the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA250 starts at $37,280 for the front-wheel-drive model.
      • That’s a $2035 increase from the 2020 model. 4Matic all-wheel drive remains a $2000 option.
      • Mercedes says the new model will arrive at dealerships within the next few months.

        The smallest Mercedes crossover gets a bigger base price for 2021. The redesigned 2021 GLA now starts at $37,280, a $2035 increase from its predecessor. That’s for the front-wheel-drive GLA250 model with a 221-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four. Like before, 4Matic all-wheel drive is a $2000 option. It is still the cheapest Mercedes SUV you can buy, just undercutting the slightly larger GLB250 that starts at $39,045.

        Mercedes hasn’t yet announced pricing for the GLA250’s many option packages, but we have no doubt that fully loaded versions will go well past the $50,000 mark. Standard equipment for the GLA250 includes LED headlights and taillights, 18-inch wheels, and an MBUX
