Jaguar C-X75 Electric car

Well, Jaguar have been busy. Above is the Jaguar C-X75 Electric Concept Car, we http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifthink you’ll agree, it looks absolutely great doesnt it? Jaguar claims this carhttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif has the potential to go 560 miles on a single charged, and reach a top speed of around 200mph, not bad for a plug-in.

The car is only a jaguar concept, and there are no plans, at least that we know of, to put it into production, it was produced simply to celebrate Jaguars 75th anniversary of the companies existence.

Currently the car is on display at the Los Angeles Auto Show and is proving a hit, not least for its impressive figures for range and speed, but also because it looks totally delicious, we find it hard to believe there would be anyone who wouldn’t like how this car looks.

The car has four wheel drive, and can run on electric only for around 65 miles on a domestic charge lasting around 6 hours, but by using a pair of tiny gas turbines to provide additional energy whilst driving, the range extends to a much more useful 560 miles.

Great looks, green credentials, and a real world level of range, this car is a clear indication of the future, in this guise it will probably never be built, however the turbine technology used is remarkable, and there can be no doubt this is going to work its way into road going vehicles in the not too distant future.
