Gaydon, Warwickshire, England – Jaguar will build a production version of the C-X75 hybrid concept vehicle it introduced at the Paris Motor Show in 2010.

The C-X75 combines an internal combustion engine with electric motors to achieve acceleration of zero to 96 km/h in less than three seconds, but with CO2 emissions under 99 g/km. The model will have a top speed of more than 321 km/h and will be capable of running on all-electric drive for more than 50 km.

The C-X75 uses a lightweight chassis made of carbon fibre and the car will be built in the U.K. in association with Williams F1.

Only 250 will be built, and depending on the market, will be priced between £700,000 and £900,000.

“People expect Jaguar to be innovators,” said Adrian Hallmark, Jaguar brand director. “That is when Jaguar is at its best. The C-X75 received an incredible reception as a concept car. We’ve been building on that momentum and there is a clear business case for this exclusive halo model. No other vehicle will better signify Jaguar’s renewed confidence and excellence in technological innovation than this.”
