After Tesla, which has decided to ban animal leather of its interiors, is that Jaguar Land Rover is working on the issue with a special fabric composed of wool and recycled plastic in place of leather. The good conscience will cost you more than 5000 €.
The presence of animal leather in the interiors is the source of the problem for some for years. Some brands sometimes have so many request in this area they are forced to react, as Bentley, who had explained to think of a way to forget the leather to meet a growing customer base who no longer wants to put his bottom in the skin of an animal.
Jaguar Land Rover announces precisely the arrival of a new fabric for its interiors in place of leather. Developed by the Danish specialist Kvadrat, this fabric is a blend of wool and recycled plastic, but it is necessary to pay dearly for his skin.
The option (yes, this is an option) is charged 5466 € and is not proposed for the moment on the novelty of Land Rover, the Velar. This is the price to pay to remain faithful to his convictions, but it’s a safe bet that more and more manufacturers will find substitute to leather in the future, and not only in the premium and high-end.
