Jaguar's Hot New Car Is A Hybrid: Its Price Tag 1 Million dollars
Read More...This is no ordinary rich man’s toy — it’s a super-sleek plug-in hybrid that can reach 200 mph but emit just 99 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometer. The zero to 60? Less than three seconds. A sheep in wolf’s clothing, you might say. The minor drawback: A million-dollar price tag.
For the uninitiated, a plug-in hybrid is like a standard hybrid on steroids. It does what, say, a Prius does in enhancing range, but it will also run for up to 50 miles on the batteries alone (the Prius can handle about one mile). The Jaguar, with two electric motors and a supercharged 1.6-liter gas engine (the show car version actually uses two microturbines) can manage more than 30 miles on the batteries.
