The 4x4 specialist said the new car had been made due to ‘high customer demand’ and has been engineered with approval from HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) to gain N1 light commercial 4x4 vehicle status.
Business users will be able to take advantage of the benefit in kind tax and full VAT reclaim associated with LCVs.
There will be two derivatives available: the Discovery 3 Commercial and the Discovery 3 XS Commercial.
Standard features include 2,130 litres of load space with a full length phenolic floor, privacy glass, two-piece bulkhead, four corner air suspension and Land Rover’s Terrain Response.
“Since launch, our dealers have received a number of requests from customers for a commercial derivative, many of whom bought standard models and then converted them independently for their own commercial use,” said John Edwards, Land Rover UK managing director.
All Land Rover vehicles include a carbon dioxide offset for the first 45,000 miles within the on-the-road price. Administered by Climate Care, an independent CO2 offset provider, the programme ensures that the average amount of CO2 produced by a Land Rover is offset by investments in a mixed portfolio of projects, including renewable energy, technology change and energy efficiency initiatives.
Discovery 3 Commercial: £28,240
Discovery 3 XS Commercial: £31,740
