Report: Jaguar-Land Rover don’t believe in autonomous cars

One of the future prospects for the automobile industry is the recent push for autonomous driving technology, which is obviously causing quite the buzz.

But in the point of view and perspective of Jaguar-Land Rover’s R&D chief, Wolfgang Epple, J-LR doesn’t approve of autonomous driving technology because they don’t consider the occupants inside the car, “cargo.”

“We don’t want to build a robot that delivers the cargo from A to B,” said Epple, who’s most likely referring to the connection between man and machine, and all that is holy in the world of performance driving. We’d agree, we like the feeling of driving and being connected to a vehicle.

Alternatively, J-LR is still adamant about trying to advance passive and active safety systems.
