    I guess they are very determined to sell lots of Defenders in the USA, particularly California whose state economy alone has just become larger than the UK's, now fifth largest in the world, which means they must meet California's strict emissions laws, so electric is the only option as it can never be done with diesel. That means the overall average emissions of all engines in the range must meet the standards, impossible without electric. That's why there will be an electric version of every model.
