Defender: more revealed on LR's new drivetrains

Note in particular:
"The more consumer-oriented models will be available with mild-hybrid and plug-in hybrid drivetrains, using the four-cylinder version of the company’s Ingenium engine. Performance versions of the Defender will be powered by Land Rover’s new straight-six Ingenium engine replacing V8s. The six-cylinder engine will also be offered in mild hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions."

That new performance in-line 6 with mild hybrid (more for running electronics than for a performance boost) would work great in the Velar. Maybe with the refresh.

EDIT: oh, and notice a Defender pick-up truck is coming.
On order: MY19.5 R-Dynamic P380 HSE, Kaikoura Stone, Black Contrast Roof, Light Oyster/Dapple Grey Premium Textile Seating, lotsa other stuff. Est. build date 7 Dec 2018, delivery date 18 Jan 2019.
