pakar Info - Jaguar C-X75 New Hybrid Car Model 2011 : One of our alert readers pointed out that last week’s piece on the likelihood of green supercars missed one that was just launched, the Jaguar C-X75. This is no ordinary rich man’s toy — it’s a super-sleek plug-in hybrid that can reach 200 mph but emit just 99 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometer. The zero to 60? Less than three seconds. A sheep in wolf’s clothing, you might say. The minor drawback: A million-dollar price tag. It’s a candidate for my “World’s Most Expensive Cars” list.
Two months ago, at the Geneva auto show 2011 , Jaguar stated that it will come up with new products in 2011. And now, little by little the curtain unveils the car company’s plans. At the motor show Jaguar Land Rover representatives talked 40 new products as a part of an investment in the United Kingdom which will be produced over the text 5 years. The project will be split with Formula 1 Team Williams F1. At present, in the UK, Jaguars are produced at Castle Bromwich, near Birmingham.
The new car will have Jaguar C-X75 ultra-light chassis and two electric motors. Those will make it reach an acceleration rate of 60 mph in only 3 seconds. Its all-electric range will be of 50 km and it will have overall emissions under 100g CO2 per km, which is among the lowest in the industry.
The model will reach a top speed of 200mph. The hybrid engine will give the opportunity of extending the range to 50 km. A prototype of Jaguar C-X75 was displayed for the first time last year in October, in Paris. It had an experimental gas powered jet engine.
Chief executive of Tata Motors – the parent company of Jaguar Land Rover – Carl-Peter Foster believes that this is a “cutting-edge automotive technology”, who also added that the new car is proof of Jaguar’s and Williams F1’s highly technological capabilities and skills. It is an example of an excellent product that can be done when the right forces reunite.
Williams F1 has its own reasons to be part of this business, reason that imply the extending of the business area from which it earns revenue. In the last decade the hybrid technology has began to earn more and more the attention of Formula 1 teams. Not only that but, according to Adam Parr, chairman of the Williams F1, this type of technology could prove itself useful in other industries as well. We only have to mention energy, aerospace, medicine and health overall.
There are certain details that haven’t been decided yet, like where will the cars be built. Nevertheless, the project is welcomed by the UK economy, as I will create work places for more that 1,000 people who are trained in the specific area.
