The Jaguar Future-Type is a fully autonomous concept that imagines mobility in a world where Jaguar customers can summon a fully-charged vehicle on-demand. Offering a glimpse into the future, it is a car for a world of autonomous, connected, electric and shared mobility.
“The 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 concept is an advanced research project looking at how we can ensure an on-demand Jaguar will appeal to customers in 2040 and beyond”, said Ian Callum, Jaguar Director of Design.
At the heart of the concept is the world’s first intelligent and connected steering wheel. This steering wheel lives in your home and becomes your trusted companion. Sayer, named after the designer of the E-type, is the first voice-activated Artificial Intelligence (AI) steering wheel that will be able to carry out hundreds of tasks.
It can summon your car, play music, book you a table and even knows what’s in your fridge. Need to be at a meeting two hours away from home by 8am tomorrow? Simply ask Sayer from the comfort of your living room and it will work out when you get up, when a car needs to autonomously arrive at your door and even advise which parts of the journey you might enjoy driving yourself.
