Jaguar C-X75 concept car at Paris Motor Show

Jaguar raise the bar for high-performance green-machines at the Paris Motor Show.

We've seen electric sports cars in various forms before, but while Jaguar's new concept car, the C-X75 ('C' for 'concept', '75' in honour of the company's 75th anniversary) may not be going into mass-production, it is a tantalising look at the supercar of the future.

Powered by Lithium-ion batteries for zero-emissions driving, each wheel is driven by its own electric motor which, working together, will propel the car from 0-62mph in a nippy 3.4 seconds. Flat out the C-X75 will hit 200mph and keep going up to 205mph - 15mph faster than an Aston Martin DB9.

Running on batteries, the C-X75 will go for about 70 miles or so before it needs to recharge. However, switch on the twin gas turbines hidden away in the rear of the car (which don't create thrust, but recharge the batteries as you drive) and you'll extend that by almost another 500 miles - or the equivalent of London to Aberdeen on a single tank.

And Jaguar haven't skimped on the aesthetic design of the thing either. Click here to have a look at our gallery.

All well and good, Jaguar. Now make us one we can actually buy, please.
