In celebration of the brand’s 75th anniversary, Jaguar took the wraps off its C-X75 concept car at the 2010 Paris Motor Show.
The Jaguar C-X75, which is a range-extended electric sports car, is intended to gives us a look into the company’s future design philosophy, which calls for the production of beautiful, faster and greener cars.
As a range extended EV, the C-X75 is powered by four 195-hp electric motors—one for each wheel—for a combined output of 780-hp and 1,180 lb ft of torque.
With just the lithium-ion batteries in use, the concept has a range of 68 miles. After the batteries runs out, the C-X75 uses two gas engines (that produce a combined 188 HP) to extend the range to 560 miles.
Mated to a single-speed transmission, the Jaguar C-X75 goes from 0-62 mph in 3.4 seconds with a top speed of 205 mph.
