Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) India will now offer advanced connectivity features, especially ones concerning emergency assistance, into its SUVs. JLR is offering the features as part of its InControl Package. The new features are named Remote Premium, Protect, and Secure Tracker. The package also includes connectivity to smartphones through the InControl app. The package has already included 4G-capable WiFi hotspot within the cars.
The features are available on the Range Rover, Range Rover Sport, and the Discovery. Using the features, passengers can receive emergency assistance or make an emergency SOS call, using either one-touch buttons located near the overhead cabin lamps, or through the smartphone app. Owners are also alerted when their vehicle has been tampered with and alert the police.
Here is the full press release from JLR:
Jaguar Land Rover India has started offering class leading advanced connectivity features called Protect, Remote Premium and Secure Tracker under the InControl Package (inbuilt communication and connectivity related features in the car), on its flagship products, the Range Rover, Range Rover Sport and Discovery. With this latest introduction, the InControl Package, which already includes features such as Wi-Fi Hotspot is further strengthened.
Mr. Rohit Suri, President & Managing Director, Jaguar Land Rover India Ltd (JLRIL), said:
"It has been our endeavour to bring the very best and latest connected car technologies into India and we are delighted that our tech-savvy customers can now enjoy a more safe and secure driving experience."
Jaguar Land Rover first introduced 4G capable Wi-Fi and Pro Services in 2017. As an extension, Jaguar Land Rover has now added Land Rover Optimised Assistance and SOS Emergency Call under Protect, Remote Premium and Secure Tracker.
Protect: In an unlikely event of a vehicle break down, the vehicle user can request immediate assistance by pressing the 'Optimised Assistance' button on the left side of the overhead console. This action establishes communication between the vehicle user and a helpline operator who will guide the breakdown service unit directly to the vehicle. Assistance can also be triggered from the InControl Remote Smartphone App. In a more serious incident, SOS Emergency Call will automatically connect the user to the emergency response team who will notify the emergency services to the user's location. Emergency Assistance can also be triggered manually by the user by pressing the button on the right hand side of the overhead console.
Remote Premium: Remote Premium is designed to provide information on the vehicle to the user and enables the user to interact with the vehicle remotely. The smartphone app allows users to remotely activate the vehicle heating and cooling to the desired temperature before they enter the vehicle. The user can also remotely lock or unlock the vehicle, receive alerts when the vehicle alarm is sounding, remotely beep and flash the car to help locate the car in crowded parking spaces and where available, remotely use the seat fold function.
Secure Tracker: Where this feature has been chosen as an option, should a vehicle be tampered with or in the case of an attempted vehicle theft, Secure Tracker will trigger a theft notification to the 'Stolen Vehicle Tracking Centre' that will immediately alert the registered InControl user of the vehicle and if requested by the local law enforcement agency, pinpoint the exact location of the vehicle for recovery.
