The company says that it will first start collecting information from people from different walks of life across the world about the kind of travel and transport issues that they face.

It will later carry out an in-depth analysis and the insights from the analysis can lead to some real-world experiments and multiple approaches which can be effective in solving those transport and travel issues.

The next stage is to develop a business and technology platform upon which the solution can be developed and launched.

Jaguar Land Rover says that it is confident about this approach as it allows to build engaging and relevant services.

The new company will be based in London and will initially employ up to 30 people who will support entrepreneurs to build new businesses.
