Speaking at the joint Jaguar Land Rover China and Chery Jaguar Land Rover media night was Prof. Dr. Ralf Speth, Chief Executive Officer, who outlined the vision of creating a more efficient and greener travel experience for customers around the world.
“Jaguar Land Rover’s corporate vision is ‘Destination Zero’ – zero emissions, zero accidents, zero congestion,” he added. “We are committed to building a beautiful society, and to create a more efficient and green future for global customers.”
Already there has been plenty of good work made in this area, with a research and development team formed in China, focusing on developing technologies in-line with Jaguar Land Rover’s ACES future.
Qing Pan, President of Jaguar Land Rover China, said: “Over the years Jaguar Land Rover has achieved a great deal in China, but we also understand that our foundations are not solid enough.
“We are actively seeking change and to stabilise the situation by focusing on the most important tasks. What we are doing is not only getting things done today, but to ensure we are able to see the success of Jaguar Land Rover in the next decade and even longer in the world.”
