Jaguar Hybrid Supercar Set For Production

By P. Joseph

The Jaguar C-X75 Hybrid Supercar – capable of travelling 900 kilometres between battery charges – is to go into production, the British luxury car-maker has announced.

First unveiled at last year’s Paris Motor Show, it was originally created as a concept car to celebrate 75 years of iconic Jaguar design. However, it is now set to be rolled out in a run of 250 models, priced between approximately $1.4 million and $1.9 million.

Inspired by Jaguar’s 1966 XJ13 racer, the C-X75 makes use of a stiff and lightweight carbon fibre composite chassis, developed with help from the Williams Formula One team.

The car will be able to cruise in electric mode for more than 30 miles before requiring gasoline assistance, employing a high-strung 4-cylinder gasoline engine with forced induction, abetted by a pair of “powerful electric motors” and all-wheel drive.

Jaguar estimates that it will be able to go from 0-60 mph, and will be able to reach top speeds of more than 200 mph.

The car’s bespoke interior features cream and grey leathers, polished and vapour-blasted aluminium and a soft-feel textured neoprene.

A precise date for production or delivery is yet to be officially announced.
