Jaguar C-X16 – Stylish Hybrid Concept Unveiled at Frankfurt Auto Show

September 16th, 2011

The Frankfurt Auto Show, which opened on September 15th and will keep attracting car lovers from around the world until September 25th, is where visitors can observe a myriad of new concept vehicles.

One of them is the wonderful Jaguar C-X16 hybrid concept.

The Jaguar C-X16 is a two-seater equipped with a 3.0 liter V6 engine able to generate 300hp and an electric motor that produces 95hp. The latter is incorporated into the eight-speed gearbox of the sleek-looking coupe.

The hybrid vehicle can register acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.3 seconds, with the op speed being 186mph.

Jaguar C-X16 has its motor generator powered by a 1.6 kWh lithium ion unit installed behind the seats. Thus the car-maker was able to obtain a perfect 50/50 weight distribution.

According to Jaguar, during the official tests its eco-friendly vehicle emitted only 165 grams per kilometer of carbon dioxide. It was also announced that for short distances the driver will be able to run their car at up to 50 mph in electric-only mode.

Inside one will be able to discover a futuristic interior with multimodal rotary controls displayed on small OLED screens that can reconfigure in order to show the different functions that the driver can perform using the controls.

To maintain the battery pack juiced up, the company equipped its new vehicle with Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) that charges the battery packs when the driver hits the brakes. The final version of the vehicle along with its price tag will be available in at least a year, until then we can enjoy this stylish concept.

It would be interesting to note that the company simply could not wait for the opening so it launched a video right before the event. Watch the video below.
