Jaguar Land Rover showcases its future vision
Jaguar Land Rover has uncovered the Project Vector, an all-electric and autonomous vehicle it envisions as the future of urban mobility.
Measuring around 4000mm in length, the self-driving pod is specifically designed to easily navigate tight city streets and maximise interior space for passengers.
The battery and all-electric drivetrain are housed within the floor of the Project Vector, though exact details are yet to be revealed.
What can be seen is a steering wheel and pedals, meaning the Project Vector will not be a full Level 5 autonomous vehicle that can operate without any driver involvement.
Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) boss Ralf Speth said the Project Vector was built with environmentalism in mind as the brand marches towards its ‘Destination Zero’ plan for zero emissions, accidents and congestion.
“Project Vector shows Jaguar Land Rover as a leader in innovation to make our societies safer and healthier, and the environment cleaner,” he said.
“Through this project, we are collaborating with the brightest minds in academia, supply chain and digital services, to create connected, integrated mobility systems – the fundamental building blocks for Destination Zero.
“Project Vector is precisely the brave and innovative leap forward needed to deliver on our mission.”
