Jaguar C-X75 Concept






Designed as a range-extended electric two-seater supercar, the Jaguar C-X75 concept, which is a plug-in, can achieve a zero tailpipe emissions range of 110km (68 miles) when running under battery power alone, plus a potential top speed of 330kph (205mph) and blistering acceleration. The C-X75’s 580kW (778bhp) propulsion system combines powerful 145kW (195bhp) electric motors at each wheel for outstanding performance. At the center of the car sit state-of-the-art, mid-mounted micro gas-turbines. These can either generate 140kW (188bhp) to charge the batteries and extend the range of the car to a remarkable 900km (560 miles) or when in Track mode provide supplementary power directly to the electric motors. The four electric motors provide torque-vectored, all-wheel drive traction and grip, essential in a car that produces 580kW (778bhp) and 1600Nm (1180lb ft) of torque.
The car’s interior is equally impressive, with the driver and passenger seated ahead of a sealed airbox that houses the micro gas-turbines. The seats are fixed to the bulkhead as in a single-seater racing car, and air to feed the turbines passes smoothly around them via channels in the structure of the body. With the seats anchored in place, the steering wheel, controls, main binnacle and pedal box all adjust towards the driver. Interior materials include cream and grey leathers, polished and vapor-blasted aluminum and a soft-feel textured neoprene.
