Land Rover Defender 110 now available as commercial

Land Rover has announced that, from today, all Defender 110 Station Wagons featuring the utility pack will gain a classification change from M1 passenger carrying to a Light Commercial Vehicle. And, because the 110 has a payload of more than 1,000kg, the Defender 110 Utility Wagon also meets requirements to be classified as a light goods vehicle for VAT purposes should it be for commercial use.

The utility pack, which is a no-cost option available on all three trim levels – base, County and XS – replaces the rear side windows of the standard station wagon with panelled sides, providing a secure load space area whilst still maintaining seating for five people.

Customers purchasing a Defender 110 Utility Wagon for commercial requirements can benefit from VAT reclaim, Benefit in Kind tax capped at £3000 for light commercial vehicles and an LCV rate of Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) – £185 from May 1, 2009.

John Edwards, UK managing director, Land Rover said: ″The change in classification for the Defender 110 Utility wagon provides our business customers with a more flexible and cost-effective alternative to other double cabs. The utility pack ensures a more secure load space whilst not affecting the vehicle’s ability to transport five people comfortably – making it an ideal workhorse.″

Prices for the utility wagon will start from about £20,874.78 plus VAT.
