Didn't see this coming... not sure it's making its way over here.

"The new 2018 Discovery Commertical (sic) is basically a single-cab commercial vehicle with no second or third row of seats. The result? A properly lined van loadbay with a fulsome 1856 litres of cargo room in the boot and blacked-out panels where the rear windows would normally go."

Well I did say next year I was going to look for the new Hello Kitty van....

 

How can I turn this down when it has a 'fulsome' amount of storage??  And why does that sound vaguely sexual?

See... this is exactly why I get so confused when they seem to sway from their off-road heritage and then they come out with this.  It's a work vehicle, while not off-road, it's nice to see something different.

Perhaps some of our resident Brits can comment with more authority, but I know there are tax breaks for 'commercial' vehicles which leads to many standard passenger vehicles being offered with no rear windows and seats.  They did the same thing with the LR3/4.
