Jag has announced that it has plans to bring a new electric SUV to market and the car the styling will be based on might surprise you. According to reports the electric SUV will be based on the style that the C-X75 seen in the latest Bond flick Spectre. Jag says that some of the most flamboyant styling cues from that supercar will find their way to the new model.
Just because you root for James Bond in the new flick Spectre, doesn’t mean you can't think that the bad guy, Mr. Hinx, has the coolest car in the flick. James Bond may be behind the wheel of a bespoke Aston Martin DB10, but car guys and gals may have a hard time getting by the fact that Aston fitted the DB10 with a V8 rather than its V12.
Jaguar has introduced its new F-PACE performance crossover, a model the auto maker calls the “ultimate practical sportscar.” The car is designed to be a bunch of things, not the least of which is an everyday driver. The crossover was developed with the maker’s Lightweight Aluminum Architecture and has an F-TYPE inspired form. Part of the model's practicality is its ample space -- drivers have a 650-liter luggage compartment, safety systems for both occupants and pedestrians, and more.
Jaguar Land Rover has announced that it is researching new low and zero emission powertrain technologies for cars and SUVs of the future. As part of the research, the automaker has created a trio of concept_e demonstrators to show off the research they are working on including high performance electric drive modules (eDM) that are being developed in house by Jaguar Land Rover.
This morning Jaguar has revealed their first official image of the 2016 Jaguar F-Pace SUV. This vehicle's first photo is captured in Shanghai - entirely appropriate due to the high potential market for this vehicle in greater China. This vehicle will likely be revealed in full - with full details, at the Frankfurt motor show taking place next week. The F-Pace is the first SUV in Jaguar history. Up until now, this vehicle has not been pictured in its final street-ready colors and accents.
You're driving along and all is well until you turn and your door swings open -- a door you're sure was firmly shut when you got in the car. Such is a potential problem some Range Rover owners are facing due to a software bug that may cause the doors unlatch on their own. A door opening without warning could distract the driver and cause a wreck, could result in property damage, or could on the extreme end of things cause a passenger who isn't wearing a seat belt to fall out of the vehicle.
While some car makers are scrambling to make cars smarter, perhaps even to the point of being able to drive themselves, at least one is putting hard limits to what technology will be able to do. At least according to its R&D head. Wolfgang Epple, Jaguar Land Rover's research and development chief, might come off as anti-robot, but his reasoning pretty much appeals to human emotion. The company doesn't consider its customers as cargo so they aren't interested in developing a robot that just delivers them from one point to another.
Jaguar has made no secret that it has a new crossover SUV in the world the new SUV will be called the F-Pace and it will be based on the design on the sexy C-X17 concept SUV. the official unveil for the F-Pace is coming in Frankfurt and until that official unveil all we have to go on are spy shots and a video offered up form Jaguar to show us what the crossover is all about.
Auto manufacturers are getting smarter all the time. Jaguar Land Rover has just created a car that can read your mind. The car won't psychically take you to your destination, but it will hold your attention. The prototype feature, dubbed Mind Sense, measures brainwaves to monitor the driver's concentration. It was developed as a safety technology research project, which has the overall goal of decreasing accidents on the road. Drivers whose concentration fades due to stress or distraction pose a real threat to others on the road. It doesn't matter if a driver's eyes are on the road, it just takes a daydream to keep him out of touch with surroundings--only to be yanked back by a car horn or an accident. Jaguar's Mind Sense project found a way to tell whether the driver is paying attention or not based on his brain wave patterns.
Jaguar has taken the wraps off the new Jaguar XF, a new luxury sedan set to take on BMW's 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz's E-Class, and promising not only sports performance but economy too. Following in the tiremarks of the aluminum-centric architecture of the larger XJ, and borrowing the styling of the smaller Jaguar XE, the new XF has a near 50:50 weight distribution and uses the Configurable Dynamics system that debuted on the F-Type convertible and coupe. With that, Jaguar says, the rear-wheel drive XF should deliver the same stability as an AWD car. However, the company also claims, the XF will be capable of up to 70 mpg, though probably not in the US.
Last month, Jaguar Land Rover recalled 104,000 or so cars in the United States over problems with the lights and brakes. Those aren't the only vehicles that have been having problems, however, and now the auto maker has recalled in excess of 36,000 cars located in China over a potential problem with the gearbox. The recall came after the company was called out on Chinese state television over the problem. The auto maker has apologized for the problem, and has added a perk on top of the recall servicing for those who are affected.
