"Jaguar Land Rover shares similar goals to Dubai’s government with regards to mobility and sustainability. We both wish to make driving safer, to free up time we spend travelling, and to reduce the negative impact travel has on our planet," commented Bruce Robertson, Managing Director of Jaguar Land Rover MENA.

"The Dubai World Congress for Self-Driving Transport tackles these same important challenges head-on, and our autonomous Jaguar I-Pace prototype is proof positive of the impressive progress our company and industry are making," he added.
