Jaguar Utilises Hypetex Technology in Latest Concept Car

Jaguar Land Rover has collaborated with Hypetex to produce the unique seat design for its latest I-PACE concept car.

The all-electric concept, which recently won the Auto Express Design Award for 2017, features a flowing seat layout produced by Hypetex engineers in its bespoke silver carbon fibre.

The front two seats are freestanding and situated in a cab-forward position, making best use of the strong yet light Hypetex material. The carbon fibre frames enable a ‘floating’ design with a central mount under each front seat offering more room for passengers behind.

Marc Cohen, CEO of Hypetex, said: “We are very proud to work alongside one of the most recognisable and reputable car brands in the world, and to have produced an integral part of the fantastic Jaguar I-PACE concept car. With the I-PACE, Jaguar will prove that electric vehicles can have flair and personality, and in the same way we are showing that carbon fibre can be vibrant and exciting.”

Jaguar is aiming to break the mould with the I-PACE, blending together elements of an SUV, a sports car, and an electric vehicle in one package.
