Today, in an online version of its annual New Car Awards ceremony, the verdict of the 182,000 voters was revealed with Jaguar scooping the accolade for the best technology. "Jaguar owners are a happy bunch when it comes to their car’s features, which is why the Coventry Cat has won Auto Trader’s Car Brand with the Best Tech Award. Drivers remarked on a “top-class interior” and talked of “superb driver aids”, including smartphone connection and the ability to start the car remotely on a cold day. Well done, Jaguar" ERIN BAKER - EDITORIAL DIRECTOR OF AUTO TRADER Jaguar vehicles are brimming with smart and convenient features to complement modern life. Features most popular with drivers are the 10-inch Touchscreen for swipe and pinch-to-zoom control of maps, media and settings, intelligent voice recognition, heads-up display and interactive driver display - all of which give Jaguar drivers the control they need over their environment without compromising the reward of driving. And for all occupants, wireless device charging, smartphone connection and state-of-the-art MeridianTM audio system options deliver entertainment, convenience and connection. New technology for 2021 revealed last month for Jaguar’s all-electric I-PACE SUV includes the introduction of ‘Pivi Pro’ an infotainment system developed to be as intuitive as a smartphone. An all new navigation provides real-time traffic updates and live access to charging points making EV ownership even more viable. Pivi Pro also features Smart Settings which automatically identify individual drivers using their key and phone. The system selects preferred seat and mirror positions and plays preferred media at the start of each journey – tailored to each driver. Smart Settings can also learn and automate these preferences based on your habits and past routines. "We are delighted to be recognised for the incredible technology available in Jaguar vehicles, particularly the all-electric I-PACE which is the exemplar of our cutting-edge innovation. This award demonstrates the relevance and desirability of Jaguar vehicles, as voted for by the people who own and love them" RAWDON GLOVER - MANAGING DIRECTOR, JAGUAR LAND ROVER UK

    Jaguar is the first manufacturer to offer customers an all-electric RACE eTAXI experience around the epic Nürburgring Nordschleife Thrill-seekers and fans of electric vehicles can now experience the sports car performance of the I-PACE at the most demanding race circuit in the world with a professional driver behind the wheel. The zero-emissions model can accelerate from 0-100km/h in 4.8 seconds (0-60mph in 4.5 seconds) thanks to its state-of-the-art 90kWh lithium-ion battery, which develops 400PS and 696Nm of torque. The performance SUV will feel at home in all weathers around the 20.8km, 73-corner Nordschleife thanks to its dynamic handling and all-wheel drive; the zero-emissions I-PACE – 2019 World Green Car of the Year – will be able to cope with any conditions the circuit known as the ‘Green Hell’ has to offer. The introduction of the first all-electric RACE eTAXI is another step in Jaguar’s electrification strategy as it enables more people to experience Jaguar’s award-winning I-PACE first-hand. Jaguar is no stranger to electric race cars, with the Panasonic Jaguar Racing team preparing for a fourth season in Formula E. Jaguar has also completed its inaugural season of the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY, the first all-electric single-make competition of its kind in the world, which features a grid of close-to-production I-PACE racers. The new experience is available from now until the end of the season in late November and costs from €149 per lap.

    The Jaguar Special Vehicle Operations-developed XE SV Project 8 has demonstrated its breadth of performance capability by setting the fastest Nürburgring Nordschleife lap time for a four-door production car again: 7min 18.361sec This new officially-verified time on the 20.6km (12.8-mile) lap is 2.9 seconds faster than Project 8’s previous benchmark set in November 2017 and 7 seconds faster than any other four-door production car has achieved. Project 8 is also the first vehicle to set an official whole lap record in the Nürburgring’s mid-range production car class, lapping the 20.8km (12.94-mile) circuit length in 7min 23.164sec. Returning to the legendary German circuit in a production-specification two-seat Track Pack version of Project 8 was development driver Vincent Radermecker. The car’s height-adjustable twin-spring coil-over suspension was set in ‘track’ ride height, with adjustable front splitter and carbonfibre rear aerodynamic wing positioned for maximum downforce and stability. To maximise performance and steering precision, for the final record runs Project 8 was fitted with new off-the-shelf ultra-high performance Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 R tyres. Tested and chosen by SV engineers for their capability on the track, the road-legal tyres use rubber compounds directly transferred from Michelin’s competition tyres. JAMAL HAMEEDI ENGINEERING DIRECTOR, JAGUAR SPECIAL VEHICLE OPERATIONS Powered by the most highly tuned 600PS version of Jaguar’s 5.0-litre Supercharged V8, the all-wheel-drive Project 8 is capable of 0-60mph in 3.3 seconds (0-100km/h in 3.7 seconds) and a top speed of 200mph (320km/h). Project 8 also features a fully-enclosed flat underbody for enhanced aerodynamics, which is key to its performance. Production of the limited-edition Project 8 will finish this year. There are three distinct four-door specifications available: Lightweight two-seat Track Pack* – as used for the record lap times Four-seat configuration with same aero package and performance as Track Pack Touring specification with discreet fixed rear spoiler – the ultimate Q-car, limited to 15 examples worldwide and 186mph. Prices for the Jaguar XE SV Project 8 start from £149,995 in the UK. For more information, and to find your nearest Jaguar Retailer, visit: www.jaguar.com/project8
