Jaguar Concept Car is Electric Hybrid with 3 Times Less Carbon Emissions than Prius
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.

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.
