    PLA vs MLA architecture

    Land Rover to introduce new modular platform starting with redesigned Defender

    An interesting glimpse in this article about the possible reason for delays in Defender production being a shift from PLA Premium Lightweight Architecture to MLA Modular Longitudinal Architecture.

    There's a link to the Autocar article on the following thread:


    Won’t be retro...


    One of the web articles on the MLA changes referred to an LR press release which covered these points, but if so it's not on their corporate website.

    The “delay” is waiting for the New plant to be built. Nothing more.

    Autocar has been featuring different versions of the same story for ages. They must be hoping that any mention of the new Deefer will help boost their sales. Like all the previous versions, this one is heavy on supposition, and light on facts.
