Jaguar Design Chief Is Interested In A Four-Door F-Type

  Jaguar Design Chief Is Interested In A Four-Door F-Type Here’s hoping they find a better name than F-Type 4-Door Coupe. Jaguar could be the next automaker to jump on board the four-door coupe bandwagon. The premium British brand already has a few sedans in its lineup so there are certainly some candidates on which to design a sleeker, sexier four-door. CarAdvice, however, reports that Jaguar’s design boss Ian Callum hasn’t mentioned any of those cars. In fact, speaking to Australian media, his candidate for a new four-door coupe is car that doesn’t even have four seats. That’s right – we’re talking about stretching the exquisite F-Type.

Today, The New York Times published an article about a dozen deaths related to drivers accidentally leaving their cars running, closing their garages and later succumbing to carbon monoxide that flooded their homes. The reason has been identified as "keyless start" features, or proximity entry and push-button start, where owners don't need to physically handle a key or fob to gain entry into the vehicle or start it. It is the latest, and deadliest, issue raised with this system after those related to security and simple inconvenience (for instance, leaving the car at a valet or car wash with the fob in your pocket).

Here's Why The Electric Jaguar I-Pace Still Has A Functional Front Grille

  Here's Why The Electric Jaguar I-Pace Still Has A Functional Front Grille Many people have challenged the design team at Jaguar for slapping the corporate face on the innovative new Jaguar I-Pace, claiming it doesn’t need a grille if it’s electric. Jaguar wanted to set the record straight at the New York Auto Show, and it turns out the grille actually serves two vital functions. The 2019 Jaguar I-Pace Will Have An Electric Range Of 240 Miles To Match Its Good LooksIt’s easy to look at cars like the Tesla Model 3 and Nissan Leaf and assume that electric vehicles do not need an air intake like traditional internal combustion vehicles, but that’s not necessarily true.

From my personal perspective, The New York Times had a rather harsh "evil carmakers" tone throughout the article. This is not a matter of a known faulty component, as with the GM ignition switch recall. This has as much to do with user error where people leave their car without pressing the "off" button and without noticing the engine is still running. About half of the cars in question are produced by Toyota and Lexus, brands that have offered keyless start longer than most. They are also brands with high rates of elderly owners, who seemingly made up a majority of reported deaths and injuries. One fire department in Florida even started a campaign alerting those in the area of the dangers of leaving your car running when it noticed a correlation between an increase in cars equipped with keyless start and calls related to carbon monoxide poisoning.

I see several contributing issues at play, most of which go well beyond this particular issue. First is insufficient training of owners by dealers and/or owners not paying close enough attention during this training. Cars are complicated, but you should at least know how basic functions work. Second, woefully inadequate driver training in this country. Third, and with apologies to the AARP, insufficient testing of elderly drivers and/or insufficiently low standards for elderly drivers. If you don't know you have to shut the car off or cannot hear that an engine is running, perhaps you shouldn't be driving.

Fourth, re-examining keyless start systems. Yes, it is convenient to not have to fumble for your keys — especially if they're somewhere deep in the nether regions of a purse — but the downsides are huge. The New York Times reports all sorts of proposed regulations and the differing methods automakers use to warn drivers to not leave the car with it running and the key in your pocket. For instance, Toyota uses three beeps, but six beeps could be more effective. Using the horn and flashing the lights can be more effective still. Best of all, automatically shut the car off after a given amount of time.

The Electric 2019 Jaguar I-Pace Can Wade Through 19 Inches Of Water, Which Is A Lot

  The Electric 2019 Jaguar I-Pace Can Wade Through 19 Inches Of Water, Which Is A Lot The 2019 Jaguar I-Pace is a fairly practical hatchback disguised as an electric crossover, but it has one surprising feature that might be unexpected for a low vehicle powered purely by batteries—it can wade through 19 inches of water. Almost 20, in fact. As I sat there shifting on my feet at the launch presentation for the production I-Pace at Jaguar’s brand new headquarters (which was clearly not designed for presentations, considering we had to do it in the building’s cafeteria and didn’t have any seats) last week, I perked up a bit when Wolfgang Ziebart, Technical Design Director for Jaguar, amusedly announced the I-Pace has a wade dep

The Jaguar XF I'm currently driving turns itself off when you put the car into park and lift off the brake. And not the automatic stop/start system, either. It's off off — even if your wife and dogs are still in the car and would rather the air conditioning remain on while you run into Starbucks. Frankly, I found it rather irritating, much as I do whenever a car does something without me asking it do so. However, I must admit that such a feature would've saved all those lives in Florida. It also removes any question about whether three beeps is better than six or if the lights flashing will help an octogenarian Floridian realize the Prius is still running.

But all of this involves coming up with complicated solutions and regulations. You know what could easily, cheaply and truly correct the problem? A key. We could just dispense with keyless start altogether. That would correct both the carbon dioxide garage scenario and the other Starbucks-related annoyance where your poor wife has to sit in the car for several minutes listening to the car incessantly beep and alert her that the key is no longer in the vehicle (because I forgot to remove it from my pocket before leaving the car).

In all, these deaths are without question tragic and heartbreaking for those featured in The New York Times story. However, this is a more complicated issue than "evil carmaker doesn't want to spend money to change something, and these poor people are dying because of it." That's the melodramatic take, the one that will most likely take hold, but it's very unfair. Of course, it's much easier to only blame the automaker than the person who didn't know how their car works, the person who didn't hear that an internal combustion engine was running inside a garage, or the person who is no longer capable of safely operating a motor vehicle. Those are issues of personal responsibility and government action, and really, good luck with those.

2021 Jaguar XK Reportedly Planned As Four-Seater F-Type .
The 2+2 sports car is expected to be based on the next-generation F-Type due in 2019. It’s a known fact that Jaguar wants to expand its sports car portfolio beyond the F-Type lineup. How are they planning to do so? There have been recent talks of a rebooted XK to join the aforementioned F-Type as a more practical alternative with space in the back for two rear passengers. That scenario seems to be increasingly more likely if we were to rely on a new report coming from Autocar.
