Jaguar has revealed its extended range electric supercar concept, the C-X75, in celebration of the Big Cat’s 75th anniversary.

According to Jaguar, the C-X75 is an evolution of the Jaguar design language whilst maintaining links with some of its more iconic previous models.

Finished in Jetstream Silver, the electric concept is shorter and lower than the current crop of supercars with its design focussed towards performance.

According to the British marquee the design was aided by the freedom provided by EV technology. EV technology is more compact than piston engines and therefore there is more scope for design.

The 205 mph electric supercar is able to run in pure electric mode for 68 miles from a six hour domestic plug-in charge. The innovative micro gas-turbines are also capable of quickly charging the Lithium-ion batteries, diving the C-X75 a theoretical range of 560 miles.

The gas-turbine technology of the Jaguar electric, was developed with Bladon Jets and makes use of a miniaturised turbine blade. The miniature blade increases compression and efficiency inside the gas-turbines to provide a realistic source of power.

The energy created by the turbines is translated into propulsion via four independent electric motors, that each drives its own designated wheel. The four wheel drive supercar offers improved stability, control and traction.

The C-X75 is fitted with a new driver interface that uses high resolution TFT screens to display the Jaguar Co-Pilot system. The interface uses designs from the new XJ and fighter aircraft for an exclusive cabin feel.

Aluminium gets the nod for the bodywork of the supercar concept, reducing its weight and simultaneously boosting sustainability, while the aerodynamics have also been improved.

The front grille and brake cooling vents are opened when necessary to direct air flow to increase stability and efficiency.
