Jaguar is showing off its new C-X75 hybrid supercar, which is an evolution of the original C-X75 concept that was unveiled in 2010. With over 850 horsepower hybrid powertrain, the C-X75 plug-in hybrid can reach 0-100 mph in less than six seconds but at the same time it is as efficient as a low-emissions city car.
The C-X75 hybrid is powered by a Formula 1-inspired 1.6L dual-boosted (turbocharged and supercharged) four-cylinder engine that generates 502 horsepower at 10,000 rpm. Two electric motors add 390 horsepower and according to Jaguar, the battery pack in the C-X75 is the highest continuously rated power PHEV pack in the world, capable of delivering more than 300kW over the full state of the charge window. The hybrid system sends all that power to the ground via a 7-speed automated manual transmission. The C-X75 can also travel up to 37 miles in full EV mode.
“The C-X75 program represents the pinnacle of Jaguar’s engineering and design expertise. It is arguably the world’s fastest test-bed for the world’s most advanced technologies, combining as it does a remarkable hybrid powertrain with awe-inspiring performance. Jaguar is always looking to shape the cars of tomorrow and with projects like C-X75 we are laying the foundations for the next generation of Jaguar innovations.”
