This will be one of the innovations that will be unveiled at the upcoming motor show in Paris. Plagiarizing somewhat Mini, Range Rover will unveil a new version of its Evoque in the colors of Great Britain. With a Union Jack on the roof, mirrors and shift knob speed, SW1 edition Range Rover Evoque looks like a big mini. Simple dressing? Not just because the manufacturer; now owned by Tata Motors, introduced a new model on this new option: a laser holographic display. A world first.
The first HUD reflectorless option on the Range Rover Evoque
There are a few weeks, Jaguar unveiled the video of augmented reality application, transforming the driving of the brand in real video game, “virtual windscreen.” A purely illusory application, since it is not so easily transforms it into a windshield screen. Yet another prestigious subsidiary of Tata Motors will be close.
SW1 edition of the Range Rover Evoque will have an option head-up display (or HUD / Head-up display) innovative. Instead of using LEDs to form an image on a small reflector in front of the driver, that HUD uses lasers. The number one advantage of this new generation of display is that the range of the laser is used to form an image much further than the LED. Result, one can dispense with reflector and display the image directly onto the windshield of the vehicle. This is not yet the “virtual windscreen” Jaguar, but comes close. The option is available in the catalog Range Rover Evoque for all from mid-October, priced at £ 1,000.
