Jaguar-Land Rover have three brands: Jaguar, Range Rover, and Land Rover, all of which are busily fielding new models, including Jaguar's XE, XF, XJ, and F-Pace, F-Type, E-Pace, and i-Pace arriving next year; Range Rover's Range Rover (model name same as brand), Range Rover Sport, Evoque, and now Velar; and Land Rover's Discovery and Discovery Sport. The JLR team are offering stunning designs and superbly styled lamps, with great attention to detail to bring their buyers driving comfort, effortless touring, all-weather safety, and clear vision. Recently I was invited by JLR's Shammika Wickramasinghe to Gaydon, England, to night-drive two new models—the Land Rover Discovery and Range Rover Velar—with Valeo's Arnaud Perrotin and Thierry Mialon.
Land Rover Discovery
Production started in August 2016, and the entry model still uses halogen bulbs—there's a very low take rate on the base halogen lamps. The first-stage upgrade is to a fixed LED derivative, and while there is no ADB, the high luxury version has AFS and a cornering function. Two lines of reflectors provide the AFS, and in each cavity there's one module with 2 LED chips.
