At Jaguar Land Rover, we are committed to our Destination Zero mission, but we recognise the need to collaborate with, foster and invest in new talents and technologies, to ensure the best minds and resources are helping us shape future mobility.
Here are some examples of our innovative investments that will help bring us closer to Destination Zero.
InMotion Ventures is Jaguar Land Rover’s venture capital arm.

Autonomous vehicle start-up Voyage is developing a driverless shuttle service deployed in large-scale US retirement communities.
ByMiles is the leading pay-per-mile connected car insurance provider in the UK and Urgently is the fastest growing digital roadside assistance provider in the US. Fatmap is developing the world’s leading platform and 3D explorer map for the outdoor adventure community.
InMotion Studio 107
Alongside InMotion Ventures’ investment activity, our incubator business Studio 107 builds mobility businesses and solutions from scratch, in collaboration with Jaguar Land Rover and its partners. What this means is that new products and services can be launched to market faster, helping to meet rapidly changing consumer demands.
The first service to be launched by Studio 107 was Carpe, a flexible, convenient alternative to renting or leasing a car on a long-term basis.
Havn, a premium all-electric chauffer service that offers sustainable transport without compromising on luxury, is another prime example of a business created by Studio 107. THE OUT is a leading on-demand premium car rental service. Customers can book their getaway car online with a couple of clicks, and get the vehicle delivered to their doorstep within 3 hours.
