Joe goes over the finer details of the Raglan Defender and shares the story of his company, before Joe and Jay take the Defender for quick spin.
Being the well-rounded car collector and gearhead he is, comedian and TV personality Jay Leno shares a love for all things automotive. Jay Leno’s Garage serves as an informative series that welcomes past, present, and future automobiles, giving Jay’s 3.54 million subscribers insight into some of the industry’s most coveted creations. On the newest episode of Jay Leno’s Garage, Jay joins Raglan Motors‘ co-founder and former U.S. Marine Joe Comiskey to check out one of the brand’s Telsa-powered Electric Land Rover Defender builds.
Raglan redefines the iconic Land Rover Defender by paying homage to classic design while integrating cutting-edge, eco-friendly technologies, serving as a gateway to new adventures and untapped experiences. Along with holding a stock of Defender inventory for future builds, Raglan Motors also invites customers to send their own Defender models for full recomission projects.
The Raglan Motors’ build brought to the Jay Leno’s Garage stage is a two-door Defender equipped with an extended bed for extra seating and storage. Powering the electrified Land Rover Defender is a lithium-ion 85-kilowatt battery pack from previously-enjoyed Tesla single-motor powertrains, producing over 600 horsepower and a max range of 200+ miles. Focused on maintaining its heritage both inside and out, Raglan designs a period-correct interior by upgrading its factory dash and cabin elements with modern materials that create an aesthetically pleasing space.
The team of military veterans at Raglan Motors have worked countless hours to develop an experience that bridges between classic and modern. After a full walk-around, Jay and Joe take the Raglan Motors Land Rover Defender out for a spin on the open road. Enjoying both the Tesla-powered Land Rover and the ethos of Raglan Motors, it’s safe to say that the electrified Defender gets the stamp of approval from Jay Leno himself.
