Continued development has enabled us to reduce the weight of our cars, emissions and running costs, but still maintain the thrill of the drive. The cars have state-of-the-art safety features and technology to keep your colleagues safe and provide a comfortable drive whilst being able to keep in touch with the office. Some of these features include*:
- Brake energy reduction
- Electric power steering
- Optimum shift indicator
- Lightweight engineering
- Reduced resistance
- Low-friction fuels
- Active aerodynamics
*Not available on every model
Our models feature intelligent touch-screens, to give easy control to satellite navigation, climate control, Bluetooth® telephone connectivity or in-car audio. The Bluetooth® connectivity enables drivers to link compatible mobile phones to the in=built hands-free telephone system, without the need for wires or cradles. Calls can be made and accepted through the central screen, steering wheel controls or the optional Interactive Voice Control feature.
The new technology improvements are clear in the F-TYPE. F-TYPE is powered by an experimental hybrid powertrain that combines a new all-alloy 3.0 litre V6 Supercharged engine with a performance-boosting electric motor, inspired by Formula One’s Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS).
This approach reduces fuel consumption, improves acceleration and lowers overall CO2 emissions, including allowing The F-TYPE to drive as a zero-tailpipe emissions electric vehicle at speeds of up to 50mph on low throttle openings.
Project C-X75 takes innovation and technology to a new level. Project C-X75 will be the ultimate expression of Jaguar design and engineering innovation. This high-performance hybrid supercar will stay true to the initial concept design study, while fulfilling requirements that allow it to be homologated for road use.
Project C-X75 will become our most advanced model to date. In an unprecedented move, Project C-X75 will be built in association with Williams F1 who will lend their engineering expertise in areas including aerodynamics, carbon composite manufacture and hybrid technologies.
This direct technology transfer between elite motorsport and road-going production cars is key to Project C-X75's success. The supercar's chassis will be made of carbon-fibre to create an incredibly lightweight, yet rigidly strong structure.
Aiding the transition from concept to production vehicle is the choice of powertrain. While Jaguar continues to develop the use of micro-turbines, as shown in the concept version, the road-going Project C-X75 will use a state-of-the-art highly boosted internal combustion engine that is designed and built for the toughest test possible - the world of Formula One.
Project C-X75 will incorporate a battery Kinetic Energy Regeneration System (KERS), developed in Formula One and now adapted for production vehicles. This will make Project C-X75 a bona fide hybrid supercar capable of silent electric running with an extensive range in excess of 50km.
