Land Rover Builds Christmas Cabin That Can Fit Into Discovery Sport
Land Rover has created a cabin – a Christmas cabin – that can fit in the rear (1,698-litre rear load space) of a Land Rover Discovery Sport. The British off-road maker highlighted in an official release that the cabin has space for two adults and can withstand ‘North Pole temperatures as low as -20°C’.
Land Rover tested the Christmas cabin with mountaineer and 12-time Everest climber Kenton Cool in the automaker’s own cold-climate chamber, which is subjected to sub-freezing temperatures. Also, the final testing was done at a ‘secret location in the heart of the frozen wilderness’.
Kenton Cool said, “There is a growing trend for off-grid living and ‘wilderness cabins’ and only Land Rover could create a ‘go anywhere’ cabin like this. The design is cleverly engineered and incredibly robust, making it perfect for remote locations across the world.”
Helen Ali, vehicle package team leader, said, “We wanted to create a Christmas cabin for Santa, in a truly Land Rover way. The spacious and versatile Discovery Sport was perfect for this project. The seats can be folded flat at the push of a button from the load space, which is wide and square and there are plenty of hidden storage spaces like the area under the front cup-holders.”
The cabin also has several characteristics of Discovery models, such as an optional tailgate seat on the deck, the wide horizontal door opening that is inspired by the vehicle’s full-length panoramic roof, and others. The cabin is constructed using sustainable materials and has a solar charger on the roof, while lights and a kettle can be connected to the Discovery Sport’s 12V power socket.
