Ian Callum has penned some of the most beautiful modern cars ever created, so when he talks, we listen.
The long-time Jaguar designer, who also penned the likes of the Ford RS200, Aston Martin DB7, and original Vanquish earlier in his career has said that we won't be seeing any giant Tesla-esque touchscreens like the one pictured below in any of his cars though, despite increasing industry trends.
Speaking at a presentation of the updated Jaguar XE called out the touchscreens which are appearing in more and more new cars, responding to questions as to whether he'd be integrating them into his designs by saying: "not if I can help it."
"If you're driving 80-90 miles an hour – and you can in some countries, legally – you don't want to be flipping around an iPad looking to move your door mirrors or your seat controls," Callum is quoted by Automotive News Europe. "You need to be able to feel your way through the car without looking at it for more than a millisecond."
