Not sure who Jaguar is taking a stab at with this, but ti did capture my attention.And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Not in this era of cameras. Car makers have accepted the fact that form trumps function when function can be made up in other ways. Its been playing out like this for a while with cars from other car makers, Jaguar is just playing off the same script.The overall design of the I-Pace is just magnificent and the ad does a very good job of highlighting the car's body and lines though I am worried about how sloped the roof is towards the rear. would that affect rear view?
If you can do without the camera then all the power to you but over time you might find yourself using the camera as another level of safety or for advanced warning combined with the habits you already built up. Seen it happen quite often, most budge for the tech.I'm more old school when it comes to driving, still backed in without the use of a rear view camera even when I had one at my disposal. Just hope people don't start relying on the safety systems too much outside of parking situations, they can only scan and react to traffic so fast.
Sadly we'll have to stick it out for another decade of poor drivers that do rely on these till self driving cars hit their initial prime, then it will be all those that don't like driving or lack the skill moving to those first, then all the traditional stuff for us driving junkies.Don't get me wrong, coming from years before of not having a rear-view camera, the habit is definitely there. But the added assistance is always welcomed and it'll pick up on things that you could perhaps miss on occasion. It's not a bad thing to have by far and can't really negatively impact you. Once you don't rely solely on it.
Perhaps it won't look exactly like that, but I can see the instrument cluster being one large screen. Maybe we'll even get a choice of display options to change the layout when needed.That boot of screen in the ad for the I-Pace instrument cluster, think that's going to be the layout for the production model? Looks like the battery indicator is on the left and you can see how much regenerative power you're getting on the right.
Like a customizable gauge cluster? It's possible if it'll be fully digital and one big screen for sure and wouldn't be that hard to integrate.Perhaps it won't look exactly like that, but I can see the instrument cluster being one large screen. Maybe we'll even get a choice of display options to change the layout when needed.
