A very different kind of Jaguar “F” Type, the all-new Future-Type concept leaps ahead a few decades, exploring what personal luxury transportation might look like in and beyond 2040. The new concept molds a sleek, self-guiding electric pod around the intelligent Sayer steering wheel previewed earlier this week. In Jaguar’s greater vision, artificial intelligence coordinates your everyday transportation needs and takes care of many other daily tasks at the sound of your voice.
Jaguar’s Sayer preview foreshadowed a connected device that could control more than just on-demand transportation, leading us to believe that it might double as Jaguar Land Rover’s version of an Amazon Echo or Google Home. Indeed, that’s what Jaguar has in mind, saying that Sayer’s duties would extend beyond the car doors, and it would work as a voice-operated digital assistant helping with hundreds of basic tasks. Jaguar imagines it sitting at home and responding to commands to play music, book dinner reservations, keep track of the groceries and, of course, summon a car.
