For four decades in the automotive industry, Ijan Kalam (64) has designed many modern cars, including Ford RS200, Aston Martin DB7, Genuine Vanquish, Jaguar C-X75 and the latest generation of Jaguar models, including F-Type.
Due to his long experience and reputation, Kalam is one of the people who blame the world of the automotive industry. Automotive News Europe used the presentation of restylated Jaguar XE to find that this well-known designer thinks about the latest trend in embedded tablets with a large touchscreen.
"If you drive over 120 km / h, it is legally allowed in some countries, you don't want to poke on the iPad to set your car to", says Kalam.
"You must be able to get into the best cockpit without looking at what is needed in milliseconds," he added. explains.
Kalam claims he has not passed the test for the new Jaguar to install tablet screens like the one in the Tesla cars that virtually fit into the vehicle.
Although it is in restyling Jaguar XE It also uses digital screens on the central hidden (one for multimedia, the other for the climate), and some of the command physics is suppressed, as well as a tactile response that simulates the pressure of classical interruptions.
All this, according to Kalama, makes the train less shorter from the road to a net in the smell.
