Land Rover Owner magazine 2022 issue cover

This month, John Pearson tests the latest electric Defender conversion from Electric Classic Cars. With 450bhp, it’s aesthetically subtle, but its underpinnings demand respect!

The Spring instalment of the LRO Adventure Trail takes us to Cumbria (in ferocious weather), where we reveal stunning greenlanes and show you where to find them.

And we’ve an eight-page deep-dive into the subject of towing with a Land Rover. What can you tow legally, how should you do it, what do you need, and how well do Land Rover’s electronic towing aids really work?
