Jaguar is known for beautiful, luxury, performance cars, and the company's latest concept car will not disappoint enthusiasts. The C-X75 is an electric hybrid with a range of 70 miles, but also has two small gas engines. What is truly "amazing" about this concept car is the low carbon emissions. Philip Proefrock of EcoGeek reports:

Jaguar's latest concept vehicle C-X75 is a sleek, beautiful car that even has two small gas turbine engines in back. But despite all the performance features, it is actualy an range extended electric hybrid (REEV) like the Chevy Volt with four electric motors in the wheels, on-board batteries that give it an all electric driving range of nearly 70 miles (110 km).

 

The C-X75 has amazingly low carbon emissions: a mere 28g/km of CO2. For comparison, the current model of the Prius emits 89g/km - three times as much, although the Prius is the second cleanest vehicle on the UK Department for Transport list.
