Back in 2010, Jaguar first unveiled its C-X75 concept car and within two years, the design has evolved as a prototype. Jaguar has released a new video that shows their hybrid powered supercar with Jaguar’s first carbon composite monocoque chassis.
Jaguar has teamed up with Williams Advanced Engineering to develop the C-X75, a plug-in parallel hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) that can reach 0-100 mph in less than six seconds. Interestingly, the overall CO2 emission of the vehicle will remain less than 89g/km, which is similar to a low emission city car.
The C-X75 hybrid’s powertrain combines a 1.6L turbocharged and supercharged four-cylinder petrol engine that generates 502 horsepower. The vehicle has a combined power output of more than 850 horsepower.
The manufacturer of the C-X75 claims that the battery pack in the vehicle is the highest continuously rated power PHEV pack in the world, which is capable of delivering more than 300kW at full charge. The top speed of the vehicle is expected to be about 220mph.
Right now, Jaguar has no plans to produce the C-X75 for sale but you can see the hybrid technologies and carbon composite materials in the C-X75 in future Jaguar and Land Rover models.
