Bubble up! Jaguar Land Rover is looking into “Air Bubbles” inside hybrid and electric vehicles, designed to decrease energy consumption for heating and cooling. Once “blown up,” temperature and quality of the bubble would be maintained using HVAC technologies like infra-red reflective (IRR) glass.
JLR is gaining even more traction as it embarks on a research project together with Warwick University to create a new battery pack manufacturing research centre. It will develop next-geneneration traction batteries for electric vehicles and is backed by a 14m pound consortium (21.6m dollars).
