Land Rover confirms new version of its Defender model

Land Rover will release an all-new version of its Defender model in 2015, it has confirmed.

The carmaker has also released the first images of the concept car upon which the new Defender will be based, the DC100.
This is set to make its public debut at next month's Frankfurt motor show.
The current Defender was first introduced in 1948 and has gone on to enjoy sales of more than two million around the world.
Its basic design has changed little over the past six decades.
Land Rover's director of design, Gerry McGovern, said: "Replacing the iconic Defender is one of the biggest challenges in the automotive design world; it is a car that inspires people worldwide.
"[The DC100] isn't a production-ready concept but the beginning of a four-year journey to design a relevant Defender for the 21st century."
John Edwards, Land Rover's global brand director, added that the company was "determined that the new Defender will be true to its heritage, while meeting the requirements of a changing global market".
UK-based Land Rover and its sister brand Jaguar are owned by India's Tata Motors.
