Here at Jaguar Northfield, we know that many drivers in the Chicago area are looking for the latest tech in their vehicles. Models like the 2018 Jaguar XJ offer the features you need in a stylish package that’s sure to attract attention every time you hit the road. Now we’ve learned that the Jaguar brand is making an even bigger investment in vehicle technology, with the establishment of a new research center that will focus on self-driving cars and electrification technology.

It’s no secret that autonomous vehicle technology is becoming a bigger priority for automakers. At a new research and development center in Ireland, engineers will focus on how to build a new car that can drive itself safely and reduce traffic collisions and fatalities. Engineers will test out tech that will power the cars of the future, so you can be sure that Jaguar vehicles won’t be left behind when these types of features become more common.

Of course, that’s not all that Jaguar engineers will be working on at this new facility. The future of the auto industry doesn’t just mean self-driving cars. It means greener self-driving cars. This research facility will develop new electrification technologies as a part of an effort to offer hybrid or electric versions of each model in the lineup by the end of the decade.

When it comes to Jaguar vehicles, you won’t have to sacrifice performance just because you’re trying to lower your carbon footprint. We can’t wait to see some of these new green cars in action for ourselves!
