Andy Goss, JLR group sales operations director, said: "A promising performance in North America has led to another month of global growth for Jaguar Land Rover, driven by continuing strong sales of the Jaguar F-Pace and the new Range Rover Velar". Engineered at Jaguar Classic Works in Coventry, the conversion equips the E-type with a bespoke 220kw powertrain, which propels the auto from 0-60mph in 5.5 seconds (a second faster than the original), LED headlights, and a frankly bizarre-looking digital dashboard.
United Kingdom automaker Jaguar Land Rover announced today that it planned to introduce electric powertrain for all new cars beginning 2020.
With Future Type's interface you can separately access your different digital orbits of work, family or play, dialling up what you do need, and dialling down what you don't. This would include the already announced Jaguar I-Pace EV and likely a future Land Rover Defender. Also on display was a model of Sayer, an artificially intelligent, voice activated steering wheel capable of acting as a personal assistant, planning journeys and a person's day - taking over the role that smart phones have had in many areas of life today.
"Sayers know what's in your fridge and can even order your shopping or a pizza", said JLR. You will never run out of milk again. But this is a steering wheel like never before. Combined sales of Jaguars and Land Rovers in China was up 29.9% year-on-year in China to 12,096, making it JLR's biggest single market.
The manufacturer will be exhibiting at the inaugural Tech Fest, to be held at London's Central St Martins art, design and technology college, where they will be unveiling their Sayer concept. Fans interested in an engineering career at Jaguar Land Rover are invited to the physical "pop-up" version of the Gorillaz garage to take part in a live challenge to test their technical ability, logical-thinking and memory.
The project, part-funded by Innovate UK, has involved more than 10 press shops (Jaguar Land Rover and external suppliers) with aluminium being remelted by Novelis. The surfboard, produced in partnership with eco-friendly manufacturer Skunkworks - was recently tested by Lucy Campbell, the UK's top female surfer.
