Jaguar Land Rover has unveiled a new concept car, the Jaguar Future Type concept. The Jaguar Future Type concept is the car makers vision for vehicles of 2040 and beyond. The vehicle is designed to be fully autonomous although you will be able to drive it if you want.
The vehicle is not one that you own, but rather an on demand vehicle that people share. Jaguar see the future of motoring in on demand vehicles and also shared mobility. We recently saw the new Sayer AI powered Jaguar steering wheel which also doubles as a smart home device.
The idea is that Jaguar customers will be able to summon a fully charged Jaguar Future Type vehicle to use whenever they want. Jaguar says that this new vehicle is designed for an autonomous, connected, electric and shared world or ACES as the company calls it.
FUTURE-TYPE offers an insight into the potential for driving and car ownership in the future. It’s part of our vision for how a luxury car brand could continue to be desirable, in a more digital and autonomous age. Our FUTURE-TYPE Concept is an advanced research project looking at how we can ensure an on-demand Jaguar will appeal to customers in 2040 and beyond. Whether it’s commuting to work, autonomously collecting children from school or enjoying driving yourself on the weekend in the countryside, if there’s a choice of on-demand cars driving around city streets, we need to ensure customers desire our 24/7 service over our competitors.
The Jaguar Future Type concept certainly seems very interesting from the video and the photos. You can find more information on this futuristic concept car over at Jaguar at the link below.
