Jaguar Land Rover India has announced that the Defender SUV will be launched in India on 15 October, 2020. The launch will take place virtually with the online bookings open on Land Rover’s India official website. Land Rover Defender price is expected to start from Rs 69.99 Lakh (ex-showroom, India). Recently, the iconic SUV featured in the upcoming James Bond movie ‘No Time to Die’. The powerful SUV was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2019 and arrives here after much delay. The British luxury automaker had opened the pre-bookings of the Defender in February this year for the Indian buyers.

The deliveries were scheduled to begin from August but the COVID-19 pandemic scuppered the company plans. This would be the first time that the iconic SUV is coming to India since the iconic British manufacturer entered the Indian market in 2009.
