It won’t be an ‘ordinary’ Evoque showcasing the HUD however, but rather the SW1 special edition designed to celebrate the UK’s Union Jack flag.
The technology differs from regular HUDs in that virtually any information relevant to the driver can now be projected onto the windscreen, but Land Rover is taking a ‘conventional’ approach at first.
Road speed, navigation instructions, traffic updates, gear selection and more will be available via the laser HUD for now, but the British carmaker will be monitoring the technology’s success (or lack thereof) before deciding what to add in the future.
Aside from the limitless information stream potentially available from future laser HUDs, JLR claims the image itself is brighter and clearer than current projection methods.
While the technology will make its public debut at the Paris Motor Show, it is available to order now for Range Rover Evoque customers in the UK as a £1000 (AU$1825) option.
Future HUDs from JLR could utilise the entire windscreen, with the ability to project changes in the road surface on the screen, inform the driver if the vehicle is too wide to fit through a narrow gap and even add a ‘virtual’ competitor during track days for the driver to chase down.
