Paris Motor Show: Jaguar C-X75

September 30, 2010 § Leave a comment

Here’s a combination: four electric motors, each driving a wheel, plus a pair of gas microturbines.
Total poweroutput from the motors is 780bhp, with 1180lb ft of torque, and the Bladon Jets-developed turbines, which spin at 80,000rpm, act as range-extending generators yet emit only 28g/km of carbon dioxide. The C-X75 has a 68-mile range in all-electric mode, and a 560-mile range overall.

Celebrating Jaguar’s 75th anniversary, the all-aluminium C-X75 is a preview of Jaguar’s future design direction and also a technology testbed. Its styling has been inspired by Jaguars past, such as the C- and D-Type, but details like its TFT information displays and the aircraft-style driver interface are state-of-the-art. It’s purely experimental, however, and unlikely to see series production.
