British Army Land Rovers to be Powered by Electrogenic

We are proud to announce that Electrogenic has been selected with Babcock International Group to re-engineer four British Army Land Rovers to all-electric drive using Electrogenic’s proprietary technology.

Babcock International, the defence company, has been contracted by the Ministry of Defence (MOD) to help the British Army understand the Defence application and constraints of electric propulsion.  Babcock will convert four in-service military Land Rovers (two protected vehicles and two general service) using Electrogenic’s standard Land Rover Defender E90 conversion kits. The vehicles will then be put to the test by the Armoured Trials and Development Unit (ATDU) in a series of experimental battlefield / military scenarios, which will assess performance over steep terrain, wading and towing, and different climate-related conditions.

Corporal Bryan Munce, from the Armoured Trials and Development Unit at MOD Bovington, said: “ATDU is supporting Defence to fully realise the strengths and weaknesses of electric vehicle technology. Mobility performance, exportable power, signature and cost reduction are just some of the considerations we will explore while partnering with Electrogenic and Babcock. In understanding what could enable our forces, it also informs MOD of potential threats to be cognizant of, to enhance our strategic approach.” 

This is a really exciting project for us at Electrogenic.  We are immensely proud to be putting our market-leading EV technology to the ultimate test with the British Army and we are delighted to be working with Babcock.  To be selected is a testament to the sophistication of our technology, and our years of experience developing Land Rover EV conversions.  At the core of our offering, is the ability to have total control over every element of the electric drivetrain. As a result, our EV technology elevates performance to a whole new level – particularly when in adverse conditions and off-road. It’s the ideal fit for military vehicles.

And perhaps most exciting of all – this is exactly the same technology that our customers can have fitted by one of our growing number of partner installers around the world.
