3-Jaguar C-X75 Concept

Concepts are a great way to explore an automakers thoughts. At the 2010 Paris Motor Show, Jaguars mind was clearly firing on all cylinders. That’s no pun, as the C-X75 concept featured no cylinders at all. By using four-electric motors, to provide power to the C-X75′s four-wheels, the new Jag was showing Paris what sort of technology to expect from high-performance automakers.

In the concept, those four electric motors are recharged via a plug, or with the two diesel turbines in the middle of the car.  However, with plans to release a production C-X75, Jaguar toned it down a bit. The limited run of production C-X75′s will feature two electric motors; one at each axle, and instead of diesel turbines, the car will find additional range via a turbocharged gas engine.

Still, Jaguar paints impressive performance numbers for the production model, with a sub-3 second 60 mph sprint, and a top speed of 200 mph. All this while still providing environmentally friendly gas consumption.
