Jaguar Land Rover Project Vector ‘autonomy-ready’ concept offers solution to today’s urban mobility challenges with unparalleled interior space and flexibility in vehicle configuration.
Jaguar Land Rover’s vision integrates Project Vector autonomous, electric concept platform into future smart city infrastructures, planned from 2021, delivering services for private and shared mobility needs.
Jaguar Land Rover’s Destination Zero mission is an ambition to make societies safer and healthier, and the environment cleaner. Delivered through relentless innovation, the company’s focus is on achieving a future of zero emissions, zero accidents and zero congestion – through its products, services and across its facilities. As the next stage of that journey, the Project Vector concept showcases an advanced, flexible, multi-use electric vehicle that is ‘autonomy-ready’.
Jaguar Land Rover Chief Executive Officer Prof Sir Ralf Speth, explains:
“Jaguar Land Rover understands the trends shaping modern societies. Project Vector shows Jaguar Land Rover as a leader in innovation to make our societies safer and healthier, and the environment cleaner. 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.”
The compact, flexible vehicle concept measures just four meters in length and is designed for the city, packaging all its battery and drivetrain components into a flat floor, to allow a variety of uses. The revolutionary interior cabin space allows seating configurations for private, or shared use and even the opportunity for commercial applications, such as last mile deliveries.
