Jaguar Unveils Its Autonomous New "Future-Type" Concept

The brand’s vision of shared cars.

By //Automotive

Fresh from revealing its upcoming retro-inspired electric “E-Type Zero,” British car manufacturer Jaguar has unveiled its concept for a new, on-demand, fully autonomous car. The new concept is based around the idea that “in a future world of on demand and shared mobility, you may only fully own the steering wheel, not the car itself.” For this, the concept car comes with Sayer — a voice-activated AI steering wheel that can do everything from summon your car to book a table at a restaurant. Owning Sayer means that you don’t necessarily need to own a car, as the device will summon a vehicle shared by others in the community.

As well as its hyper-futuristic design, other features include a self-driving capacity — although the driver can choose to switch back to manual and take over — as well as the ability to communicate with other cars on the road, and a face-to-face seating option. At the moment, there has been no confirmation of when — or if — the Jaguar “Future-Type” will enter production, but the brand has described it as part of its plans to “appeal to customers in 2040 and beyond.”
