    Re: Is this it?

    Imagine a 130 Commercial version. Although there is still doubt when the 130 may appear - if at all. Think JLR will first observe sales figures of the 90 and 110.

    Probably ease of loading. Also maybe easier to have only one body type on the assembly line.

    Re: Grid-tied or off-grid. Please consider ...

    Asking as someone who does not have prepaid - does net metering come into the picture? I.e. receiving credit from the local authority for putting current back into the grid.

    The Defenders used in the Namibian trips definitely had the AdBlue tanks - one could see the filler spouts. And I saw them refilling at a fuel station at Langstrand. For what it may be worth.
