Jaguar Builds $1 Million Hybrid Supercar

The company said that it will be selling 250 hybrid supercars  with a starting price of about $1.15 million, which will be almost twice the amount of Porsche's 918 hybrid. Jaguar promises that the C-X75 will accelerate from 0-60 MPH in less than 3 seconds and reach a top speed of more than 200 mph. There was no estimate of fuel efficiency, but the manufacturer noted that the car will feature low CO2 emissions of 99  grams per km, which leads us to believe that Jaguar is aiming for about 50 - 60 MPG.

The batteries in the C-X75 will be powerful enough to give the car a EV driving range of at least 30 miles, according to Jaguar. We are pretty sure that this vehicle, just like the 918 hybrid, will fuel a discussion just how realistic that fuel efficiency rating is at maximum speed. At least Porsche says that such cars are necessary for sports car and luxury car makers to attract a green image and provide their customers with "green" alibi supercars - as well as cars that achieve the status of tax exemptions.
