LR Defender Sales By Country: 2011


The Land Rover Defender is coming to the end of its long and illustrious career. Yes, there will be a replacement, but it will be different and it has to be. No vehicle has a right to last essentially unchanged for over sixty years. Yet the Landie has.

Establishing sales data by country for this model is difficult. In Europe, many are sold as commercial vehicles, which are rarely broken down by individual model. It would be easy to assume that any commercial Land Rover is a Defender, but that is not always so. Other LR models can be found there too, so rather than assume, I only list the ones I know. In places where I know there are many more hidden Defender sales, I have italicised the listing as the sales I know of:

1 UK 5,517
2 France 1,216
3 Spain 909
4 South Africa 628
5 Australia 536
6 Russia 280
7 Netherlands 131
8 Poland 104
9 Brazil 57
10 Germany 47 10 Sweden 47 12 Czech Rep 39 13 Switzerland 38
14 Argentina 30
15 Iceland 15
16 Romania 11
17 Denmark 8
18 UAE 7
19 Slovakia 5
20 Austria 4
21 New Zealand 2
22 Greece 1
22 Latvia 1


Nations such as Germany should be high up the list, but unless I find out for certain, those sales are listed below. This lower list are Land Rover commercial sales unspecified:

1 Germany 1,638
2 Norway 264
3 Austria 261
4 Switzerland 214
5 Ireland 154
6 France 120
7 Czech Rep 105
8 Sweden 38
9 Finland 32
10 New Zealand 31

As more data is available to yours truly, I will update the lists. Last updated 20.04.12
