Jaguar cancels its over $1 million hybrid supercar plans

Images and details of the proposed Jaguar hybrid supercar turned up a while back. The car sounded very interesting and certainly looked cool. However, I'm sure I wasn't alone in wondering why Jaguar want to be creating a hybrid supercar at this point. The answer to that question is, Jaguar isn't.

The car company has announced that it has canceled any plans to build and sell the C-X75 Hybrid Supercar. Jaguar blames tough marketing conditions that have made building the $1.1 million per unit car unviable. I suspect building the car wasn't viable last week either and now that Jaguar has wrung all the headlines a can of the vehicle it has canceled plans.

If you're ready to drop huge money on a hybrid supercar you will have to stick with the Porsche 918. It's too bad Jaguar can't just use sexy design it made up for the hybrid supercar in a significantly cheaper vehicle.

Filed under: SUV, Crossover, Land Rover, Diesel, Luxury Jaguar Land Rover offers nearly all its models (save for the F-Type and outgoing XK) with diesel engines... it just doesn't offer any of them in the United States. But that's about to change, and that change is tipped to start with the Range Rover Evoque. Speaking with JLR North America marketing veep Kim McCullough at the Paris Motor Show, AutoGuide reports that the British automaker is seriou ...

Jaguar XE SVR to challenge M3, C63 with supercharged V8 power

Oct 14 2014 4:42pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Jaguar has a healthy powertrain range lined up for its new XE, including an array of four-cylinder engines and a supercharged 3.0-liter six that will, for now, serve as the range-topping offering in the XE S. But Car and Driver claims to have it on good authority that an even more powerful eight-cylinder version is in the works, as well. According to C/D, the XE's engine bay has been designed to accommodate the company's ubiquitous 5.0-liter V8 engine, which in t ...

Next 7-series to Offer BMW’s First Modular Six-Cylinder and More

Oct 14 2014 10:28am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Competing with the Audi A8, the Jaguar XJ, and the still-fresh Mercedes-Benz S-class, the current BMW 7-series has fallen to the back of the flagship pack. (It finished third of three even as far back as this 2011 comparison test.) But the all-new sixth-generation is waiting in the wings, and we expect it to debut as one of the stars of the 2015 Frankfurt auto show next fall. And that won’t be due solely to a re ...

2015 Jaguar XK

Oct 13 2014 8:14pm CDT | Source: The Car Connection

Here for one more model year, the 2015 Jaguar XK lineup carries over without significant change, as it's stepped aside for the arrival of the more rambunctious F-Type. While the XK (and its higher-performance XKR and XKR-S variants) remain exciting grand-touring cars, the F-Type is what truly has eager ...

Jaguar Commercial Employs Evil MI6 “Q” Character, Underground Lair, Holograms to Great Effect

Jaguar advertising has been on a roll lately, with the whole “British villains drive Jags” thing resonating well with the brand’s outsider market position and its extremely seductive lineup. The firm’s latest commercial, however, might just top them all, with a treasure trove of intelligently sinister references, as well as a confident swagger befitting a brand on the rise. Mixing elements from the villainous series of spots ...

Volvo Plans New Sports Cars and Convertible

Oct 13 2014 11:00am CDT | Source: Top Speed

There was once a time when the words “Volvo” and “sports car” were as compatible as oil and water. Volvo just didn’t have the chops or the intention to build sports cars. Volvo built safe cars, which is what the Swedish automaker ultimately decided to hang its hat on. Times sure have changed because Volvo is not only thinking of overhauling its lineup, but its planning to do it by re-entering the sports car and convertible market. Stranger things have happened, but this one is definitely up th ...
