Jaguar Electric Car
Get ready for an electric Jaguar supercar. The Jaguar C-X75 that was the star of the Paris Auto Show in 2010 is going from concept to reality.
The Hindu Business Line reports that Jaguar will begin production of the car in mid-2013.
“A supercar like the C-X75 is the logical choice to showcase cutting-edge design, intelligent use of new environmental technologies and motorsport-inspired performance,” said Dr. Ralph Speth, Chief Executive Officer of Jaguar Land Rover.
The C-X75 is no ordinary electric car. First of all, it has two gas turbine engines derived from aircraft engines harnessed to the electric motor to give it more range.
It can go from 0-60 in about three seconds, with a top speed of 205 mph.
Only 250 cars will be made. Oh, and it will sell for anywhere from $1 million to $1.5 million.
“It's a statement of intent and a sign of their future ambitions,” said Ian Fletcher, luxury auto analyst at IHS Global Insight in London. “It shows where they want to go and compete against all the BMWs, Audis, and Porsches of this world.”
