The Jaguar C-X75 – a hybrid concept car
Debuting at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, the Jaguar C-X75 is a hybrid-electric, 2-seat, concept car produced by Jaguar Cars in partnership Williams Advanced Engineering.
The car was featured in the 2015 film Spectre, the twenty-fourth James Bond film.
The powertrain of the C-X75 concept is rated at 778 hp through four YASA Axial Flux Electric Motors each of which drives one of the four wheels. The batteries driving these motors are recharged using two diesel-fed micro gas turbines. It was described as a design study that would influence future design and technology.
In May 2011 Jaguar announced a limited production of the C-X75 from 2013 to 2015, with a compact, forced induction petrol engine combined with the YASA electric motors instead of the micro gas turbines in the concept car, delivering a four-wheel drive hybrid supercar with around 900bhp.
