Jaguar Cancels Plans for C-X75 Hybrid Supercar

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.
