Twisted EV Drivetrain The Electric Solution for Defender

The Twisted EV Drivetrain system is the classic Twisted blend of on-road and off-road performance. 214BHP / 380NM torque, 200+ miles of battery life. The vehicle retains its off-road ability with its 4WD and high/low range.

For Defender owners who want to be greener, the swap takes around 2 weeks and is carried out at our Bristol (UK) and Virginia (NA) facilities.


Twisted have spent almost 20 years making the Defender© as good as it can possibly be. The clean and robust EV drivetrain, exclusive direct drive power system and US-made electric motor deliver what you need, when and where you need it.

“I'm really excited to have the ability to bring EV ownership to users of a classic British vehicle. Our solution is completely engineered from the ground up using the highest quality new automotive components. The system is ready to be deployed at scale internationally and is very different from the 'home-brew' style of electrification found elsewhere.”
