Anybody know what Jag is trying to cool with all that hood duct work? Is there a radiator in front of the car or not?
I see the normal cabin fresh air intake under the cowl...
The hood ducting is probably not an elaborate way of getting more fresh air in there. I'd hope.
The hinges on the Jag look like they're pedestrian strike pop-up at the rear.
Don't think my model S in North American market has that. Score Jag. Caveat: the older S is nothing but space under the hood so it would accommodate person falling onto it and deforming quite nicely. Maybe the newer AWD small frunk cars would benefit more from a pop up hood.
Also, I see quadruple latching as compared to my model S uni-latch...
One of these bonnets is going to stay put in more situations than the other: score Jag.
There are some advantages to being a car company with a legacy of experience.
Your US Tesla doesn't have a pop-up hood in case of a crash? In Europe they have. Might be because of legislation, but I would have thought Tesla would have implemented it in the US as well.
It lifts the bonnet near the windshield at bumper impact for a bigger clearance to harder structures underneath. Probably most important for ICE cars.What does the pop-up hood do? Captures the hit pedestrian inside the frunk so you can drive away from the accident like nothing happened, and then dump the body when you're far away enough from the scene?
