Today we will not be talking about the competition in production and sales, but rather about accusations of car technology theft made by Jaguar Land Rover against the German giant Volkswagen Group, the owner of; Porsche, Audi, Volkswagen, Lamborghini, and other famous brands!
According to a report published on Bloomberg, it appears that Jaguar Land Rover requested from the US International Trade Commission to block the sale of a number of new models produced by the Volkswagen Group in the US market. According to Jaguar Land Rover, the reason for this request is that these VW crossover vehicles are using the patented Terrain Response system developed by the English company without permission.
The new German models currently sold in America and accused of stealing automotive technologies from Jaguar Land Rover include the following:
If Jaguar Land Rover was able to prove these allegations of theft of the Terrain Response system in these cars, it will prevent them from being sold in America until the dispute with the British manufacturer is settled and financial compensation is paid.
It should be noted that the Terrain Response system, which caused this disagreement between the automobile giants, according to the report, changes several vehicle parameters with a button press and this is what distinguishes it, as one press of the driver allows him to determine the best driving mode on rough terrains.
Bloomberg also said that Jaguar Land Rover has already filed a lawsuit against Bentley, also owned by the Volkswagen Group, because of the Driver Dynamics system used in the Bentayga. A trial is scheduled for February next year, God willing.
The details available to our team at ArabGT confirm that the US International Trade Commission has not yet started to investigate the alleged car technology theft claimed by Jaguar Land Rover against VW Group.
