Mike O’Driscoll & Gary Temple, Jaguar & Landrover, at the 2010 NAIAS

2010 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), Detroit, MI –
Gary Temple is president of Jaguar Land Rover North America. Mike O’Driscoll is the managing Director, Jaguar cars. Both talked to me at the Detroit auto show.

Over the past year eight women motoring writers from around the world have tested 21 cars from the short list and the Jaguar XF was the clear winner of the Women’s World Car of the Year (WWCOTY).

The Jaguar XJ was named Car of Show in Miami.

It was only 18 months ago that TATA bought Jaguar and Landrover, but they have new product and a refreshed product line.

Jaguar is part of a UK government-funded project called Limo-Green. How many miles per gallon can a 4-door, 4-seater luxury range extender get?
