The 2015 Defender replacement will be built in India

Let's face it. The Mini and the Defender are two cars the British just love and appreciate and not only them. Now we will stop for a moment and discuss a little about the Defender. The 4x4 Land Rover model is being produced since 1947 and did not change a lot. Also you should know that is was built always in the UK. But this is going to change. Tata Motors decided to build its 2015 replacement in India. Of course it has to do with the manufacturing costs. But this is not all. The carmaker also hopes to bring its assembly closer to the Asia-Pacific region and this is actually the place where it thinks the market will be very strong. Land Rover revealed two DC100 concepts as a preview of the Defender, but the model will probably have as base an updated version of the T5 ladder chassis the Discovery and the current Range Rover Sport use.
