Paris, France – Jaguar has unveiled its C-X75 extended-range electric supercar concept at the Paris Motor Show, a vehicle capable of reaching zero to 100 km/h in just 3.4 seconds, and with styling the company said points the way to a new design language.
The all-wheel drive C-X75 uses four electric motors, rated at 195 horsepower each and one for each wheel, to produce 778 horsepower and 1,180 lb-ft of torque, with a top speed of 330 km/h. Two micro gas-turbines, spinning at 80,000 rpm, can generate enough electricity to extend the range to 900 kilometres and produce just 28 grams of CO2 per kilometre from the car’s plug-in charge capability. The car can travel approximately 109 km solely on battery power from the grid.
Jaguar said that the C-X75 has been designed to celebrate 75 years of the marque and provide a glimpse into the future of the brand and its commitment to producing beautiful, fast cars powered by sustainable means.
“The C-X75 is a tribute to the people who shaped the iconic Jaguars that are revered to this day,” said Mike O’Driscoll, managing director of Jaguar Cars. “By making it an innovative testbed for the technologies of tomorrow, it also ensures that our reputation for engineering excellence will continue for another 75 years and beyond.”
