2021 Jaguar F-Type facelift debuts 2 December

  2021 Jaguar F-Type facelift debuts 2 December The reveal event will be held in partnership with Hot Wheels. A six-second clip represents Jaguar’s way of telling the whole world about the imminent debut of its facelifted F-Type. Debuting the 2nd of December, the gorgeous coupe will enter the stage during an event organised in partnership with Hot Wheels, hence why the brief footage above shows a track loop. It could be Jaguar’s way of telling us an actual F-Type will perform some kind of stunt to follow up on the E-Pace’s spectacular barrel roll from 2017 or the F-Pace’s 360-degree loop two years before.

Jaguar Land Rover has shocked the world of future motoring by unveiling an entirely new, fully engineered electric car platform that's capable of supporting a wide variety of autonomous, shared and private vehicle configurations.

Jaguar Land Rover has unveiled a new ' autonomy -ready' EV platform. It's called Project Vector . Project Vector shows Jaguar Land Rover as a leader in innovation to make our societies safer and healthier, and the environment cleaner," said Jaguar Land Rover chief executive officer, Ralf Speth.

As part of Jaguar Land Rover 's mission to achieve zero emissions, the company has unveiled a new concept vehicle, Project Vector . The electric vehicle is designed to provide autonomous rides in urban environments, and it could hit the streets in a pilot program beginning in 2021.

Work on the project, which is entirely separate from JLR’s current or near-future production car range, is already so far advanced that a multi-use autonomy-ready vehicle, claimed to offer unparalleled interior space and flexibility, will begin road trials in Coventry late next year. City and West Midlands authorities have already agreed to cooperate, viewing the project as “a living laboratory for future mobility”.

Called Project Vector, the vehicle’s all-new “skateboard” platform was launched earlier today at Warwick University’s National Automotive Innovation Centre (NAIC) by JLR CEO Sir Ralf Speth, who revealed that it had been in secret development there for several years.

He cited Vector as the latest and biggest move yet towards “Destination Zero”, JLR’s ambition to achieve a future of zero emissions, zero accidents and zero congestion.

Jaguar Land Rover has unveiled a new platform for autonomous electric cars of the future. Project Vector , part of the company's Destination Zero plan for a cleaner and Project Vector could form the basis of a number of future vehicles, being a flexible multi-use platform that is ' autonomy -ready'.

“Jaguar Land Rover understands the trends shaping modern societies,” said Speth. “Through this project we are collaborating with the brightest minds in academia, our supply chain and digital services to create connected, integrated mobility systems, the fundamental building blocks for Destination Zero. Vector is precisely the brave and innovative leap forward needed to deliver on our mission.”

The vehicle being readied for the Coventry trials is just four metres long and designed for life in the city, with its battery and drivetrain components packed into a flat floor, allowing maximum design flexibility for the body above. The experimental car’s cabin space allows seating configurations for private or shared use, or for commercial use, such as last-mile deliveries.

Project Vector is being developed at NAIC, Speth explained, to give it the advantages of a start-up project, in particular agility and easy collaboration with academic and outside partners. The project’s director is Dr Tim Leverton, an eminent engineer and researcher who was previously chief engineer at Tata Motors and has worked on projects as diverse as the JCB Dieselmax record car and BMW’s original Rolls-Royce Phantom.

Jaguar F-Type P575 AWD R 2020 review

  Jaguar F-Type P575 AWD R 2020 review Thoroughly revamped two-seater sports car arrives in range-topping all-wheel-drive V8 guise with 567bhp and 516lb ftThe upshot of all this is an F-Type with explosive straight-line performance and sports car-like handling and stability, but with a smaller dose of long-legged GT usability thrown in for good measure. It rides impressively well, too, at once feeling more pliant and more forgiving than a similarly-priced 992 Carrera 4S.

Jaguar Land Rover took the covers off its autonomous pod-shaped prototype dubbed “ Project Vector ” mid-February, part of its Destination Zero vision for an autonomous electric connected future for urban mobility.

Jaguar Land Rover has released its Project Vector concept for an autonomous and electric multi-use vehicle designed for cleaner and safer cities. Called Project Vector , the four-metre-long concept car is designed for the city, with a compact design afforded by its electric powertrain that sees its battery

“The megatrends of urbanisation make connected urban mobility systems necessary and inevitable,” said Leverton.

“Shared and private vehicles will share spaces with and be connected to public transit networks, so you can travel on-demand and autonomously. Future urban travel will be a composite of owned and shared vehicles, as well as public transport. Our vision shows the vehicle as a flexible part of the urban mobility network that can be adapted for different purposes.”
