Sold out for 2021: So what if the all-new Land Rover Defender costs RM 800k? 01

The all-new L663 Land Rover Defender has been launched in Malaysia today and prices start from an extravagant-sounding RM 798,800 (inclusive of 50% SST discount, valid until 31-Dec 2021).

Perhaps you might be interested to get one in spite of its high price tag because it’s a special-looking Landie but tough luck because Jaguar Land Rover Malaysia (JLRM) has sold its entire stock for 2021.

During the L663 Defender’s launch, Syed Ahmad Muzri Syed Faiz, JLRM’s Managing Director, said that the SUV received such an overwhelming response that all the stock allocated for the year has been completely sold out.

The two units that were shown to the media were already booked. As a result, any further bookings would see the Defender arriving to their respective owners from 2022 onwards.

JLRM hasn’t revealed how many units of the Defender were initially allocated for Malaysia. Clearly whoever the buyers are, the SUV’s high price isn’t really of concern.

While the L663 Defender has quite a few detractors, especially from hardcore Land Rover fans who see this modern Landie as nothing more than a poser with the same name, the sales tell a different story. It is one of Land Rover’s most popular models and the British SUV-maker couldn’t keep up with demand at first.

The L663 Defender 110 is available in Malaysia with two petrol engine variants, a turbocharged 2.0-litre P300 (300 PS/400 Nm) or a turbocharged 3.0-litre P400 mild-hybrid (MHEV) that makes 400 PS and 550 Nm.

Both engines are paired to a ZF 8-speed automatic with a 2-speed transfer box that sends power to all 4 wheels, just like any good ol’ Landie.
