Don't be mistaken for the defender, it's Bolinger B1from NYC start-up. They seem to have done really good job, now let's see how she tackle the real off-road terrain

Any haters/takers....?

This must be the most ill-conceived car design ever...

Wow! Not too heavy. Still cannot see it being fit for desert driving.

Thanks, @victor for sharing this nice update. Not sure about others, but I like its design quite much. Nice blend of defender and Hummer. The only thing my mind doesn't accept is its electricry powered and how that will produce off-road grunt.....?

Electric motors produce power differently from a combustion engine. In a combustion engine, the torque builds up gradually, reaches a peak and tails off slightly. In an electric motor, you have instant 100% (almost) torque and horsepower as soon as the motor is rotating. This is why the teslas have insane 0-60 mph time, under 3 seconds, 2.6 or 2.7 you need to check yourself. Putting theory into it and using head over heart, electric off roaders do make sense. 

I am a die hard petrolhead but I'm slowly starting to come around to the idea of it. Adapt and survive. I still think this looks like the top gear electric car though, meccano and a few sheets of aluminum. They should have hired pininfarina or someone and at least made it look modern.
