The EV is just four meters long, and its battery and drivetrain are all built into a flat floor. Inside, the cabin can be configured for private or shared use, as well as commercial deliveries. It was developed at the National Automotive Innovation Centre at the University of Warwick in the UK, with input from academic and industry partners.

This isn’t just a one-off show vehicle. Jaguar Land Rover plans to begin on-road testing in England in 2021.

The vehicle does have manual controls, but Jaguar Land Rover said it is also “autonomy ready,” should that technology develop to the point where it is suitable for mainstream use.

With the battery pack and powertrain mounted below the floor, Jaguar Land Rover said the interior can easily be reconfigured for different uses, including ride-sharing and delivery services.
