Previously, prototype tests of the newest Defender practiced in Kenya (Africa), the Rocky Mountains in Colorado (USA) with a height of more than 3,000 meters above sea level and beyond the Arctic Circle. Temperature variation ranged from -40 to +50 degrees Celsius. Land Rover engineers conducted a total of 45,000 individual tests, and the model traveled a total of about 1.2 million km.

The debut of the newest Defender will be in a month in Frankfurt. The start of sales of the model scheduled for 2020.
