EU kills the Land Rover Defender - level 2

EU kills the Land Rover Defender - level 2

01-02-2016 15:00

The Land Rover Defender is an iconic British 4 by 4 car. Britain had it in production for 67 years.

Now, the production stopped because of new EU rules for car emissions. Workers and media came together at the factory to say goodbye to their favourite model.

The maker of the car is working on a new model which will replace the Defender.

Difficult words: rule (a document which says what you must do), emission (the gas which comes out of the car), replace (to be the new version of).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
