RANGE ROVER VELAR AND JAGUAR E-TYPE ZERO WIN AT GQ CAR AWARDS 2018

Jaguar Land Rover has won two trophies at the GQ Car of the Year Awards. GQ
(formerly Gentlemen's Quarterly) is an international monthly men's magazine based
in New York City and founded in 1931. The publication focuses on fashion, style, and
culture for men, though articles on food, movies, fitness, music, travel, sports,
technology, and books are also featured.
The luxurious and capable new Range Rover Velar won the ‘Climb Every Mountain in
Luxury Award’, while Jaguar’s zero-emissions E-type Zero was named as ‘Best Use of
Electricity since the Light bulb.’
In March 2017, the Range Rover Velar became the first car to ever be launched and
displayed at the London Design Museum. Created with balanced proportions and
elegant lines, the Velar brings unprecedented glamour and modernity to the Range
Rover family, but without losing the famous go-anywhere ability of every Land
Rover.
”That it can cruise effortlessly through any urban landscape is a given, but when
called upon, it can also conquer where mountain goats fear to tread. We love the
new Velar” – GQ Magazine
Mr. Gerry Mcgovern, Chief Design Officer of Land Rover is quoted as saying “Our
continued evolution is driven by a relentless focus on creating highly desirable
vehicles our customers will love for life. The Range Rover Velar brings a new
dimension of modernity to the Range Rover family with an abundance of innovative
technologies, all making this vehicle a joy to drive and be driven in. We’re honoured
that the arbiters of style at GQ have recognized the tireless endeavors of our
designers and engineers who have delivered a vehicle with compelling design,
tailored technology and relevant innovation which come together to create a vehicle
of instant desirability”
The Jaguar E-type Zero is a modern reinvention of Jaguar’s most iconic vehicle, fitted
with a new zero emissions, all-electric powertrain. Built by Jaguar Land Rover
Classic, the E-type Zero boasts an advanced lithium-ion battery pack with the same
weight and dimensions as the original car’s XK six-cylinder engine. Weighing in at
around 46kg less than a traditional E-type, the Zero can accelerate from 0-62mph in
5.5 seconds.
