Jaguar XE offers Wi-Fi connectivity

The new Jaguar XE due out next month comes equipped with a wide range of state-of-the art technologies, which includes Jaguar InControl to essentially make the car act as a WiFi hotspot in any location.

The new XE’s InControl infotainment system is designed around an 8-inch touchscreen. An intuitive user interface gives access to all features and functions, and voice control using plain speech means that drivers can keep their eyes on the road at all times.

“In-car technologies in this ever-more connected and fast-paced world are an integral part of your driving experience. With the all-new XE we’re introducing an entire suite of driver aids and entertainment systems,” says Mike Bell, Jaguar’s global connected car director.

Jaguar InControl Remote allows users of iOS and Android smartphones to connect to the car from wherever they are and control a range of vehicle functions. These include seven-day timed pre-setting of the XE’s climate control system, locking or unlocking the doors, or starting the engine.

It also allows users to access smartphone apps through the vehicle’s touchscreen, making it easy to do everything from a conference call, find a parking space or book a hotel room. The XE also functions as a Wi-Fi hotspot, enabling multiple devices to connect to the internet. With the vehicle’s antenna providing the coverage.
