What seemed to be experimental impossibilities have now become a reality, with mind-boggling electronic aids to enhance the driver capability and safety aids. Here is what Jaguar has to offer in the future.
Jaguar is at the forefront of electronic engineering with the five-seater I-Pace sports car, delivering 700Nm torque and 294kW. It has a staggering performance of 0-100km/h in four seconds. Jaguar claims the I-Pace has a range of over 500km. We visited this beauty at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year and we can assure you that the photos do not do it justice.

V8-powered F-Pace SVR
Those who had the privilege of driving the new F-Pace will agree that the diesel-powered Jag does need a bit of help in the kW department. The SVR will be the most powerful and expensive SUV the British brand has ever produced. Created by Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations (SVO), it should go on sale by the end of 2018. With 425kW on tap, up from the previous V6 supercharged engine of 280kW, it should satisfy most power-hungry fans out there.
Future-type in 2040
Fully autonomous car of the future? This new concept is based on the idea that in
the future world of on-demand and shared mobility, you may only fully own the steering wheel, not the whole car. So you will end up owning a voice-activated steering wheel in your laptop bag that can summon a vehicle shared by others in your area. Obviously, it will have a self-driving capability and communicate with other cars on the road, but the good news is that the driver can switch back to manual when needed. The future is looking bright for Jaguar Land Rover, with promises of a new car every year, and as the SVO brand keeps on expanding with wonderful new products. Watch out AMG and M.
