Prince Charles opens National Automotive innovation center

 

HRH The Prince of Wales opened the National Automotive Innovation Centre (NAIC), a new facility at the University of Warwick in Coventry supported by Jaguar Land Rover to solve mobility challenges and deal with future innovations in the fast-changing auto industry.

The 355,000-square-foot NAIC includes workshops, laboratories, engineering suites, and powertrain development facilities. They will be used to advance the future foci of the auto industry: lower emissions, autonomous driving, and accessibility to those with disabilities. Jaguar Land Rover was a heavy contributor to its development, alongside parent Tata Motors and the University of Warwick's Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG).

Major projects as the Centre opens include the development of further advanced driver aids in the Discovery 5, a self-driving electric Jaguar I-PACE, Tata's affordable Nexon EV and self-driving Hexa, Warwick University's entry in the Formula Student racecar competition, and their Warwick Moto electric motorbike program.

 

Prince Charles exploring the facility

 

The building is designed to be sustainable, in line with its developments being crafted within. It has a rooftop photovoltaic array for power, regenerative electric heating, a timber roof, and lots of natural light.

HRH The Prince of Wales arrived in an all-electric Jaguar I-PACE, likely a symbol both of the goals of the NAIC and HRH's environmentalist mindset.

The developments at the NAIC will help JLR progress on their Destination Zero goal, their plan to make society safer and their products cleaner and greener.
