Jaguar Unveils The New C-X17, And The Hybrid Still Matters

Jaguar has just unveiled the in its concept lineup: The 4×4 C-X17.

The lightweight crossover form the basis for a new range of Jaguars; the first product be a mid-size premium sedan of and conventional engine variants in 2015 (North America in

The C-X17 is most definitely not the hybrid supercar the Tata-owned unveiled in Paris in 2010, they both were outside Harrods earlier week. That one is an 850-horsepower with a seven-speed manual and a 0-to-100 mph sprint time of six

It was a fitting parking place for the British marque to generate and show off its latest development for lightweight aluminum engineering and electric battery technology But I must admit my reaction to the after reading the C-X17 was a disheartening sense of boredom—ennui, the whole situation.

The fact the vehicle won’t be offered in an option, and that the C-X75 has a 20-mile gas-free driving sum the gist of the problem.

In the past few years Audi BMW, Mercedes-Benz Mercedes-Benz and among other luxury have shown off alt-energy meant to herald the future of brand. The V12 Ferrari LaFerrari. for will go to 62 miles per hour in than 3 seconds, with a top of 217mph. (It’ll hit 120mph in seconds.) It’s also a which ushers Ferrari a new crop of elite supercar like the McLaren P1.

But the LaFerrari is a one-off vehicle, made for the rich and anything but a daily And there is still a long between the ultra-light, aggressive fuel-sippers we see on car show podiums—most are not near street legal and be outlandishly, embarrassingly expensive to at volume—and the hybrid and electric available for sale today.*

Why haven’t we progressed to the point these concepts can hit the road in quantities without being neutered? We’ve had electric in cars since 1899 see: La Jamais Contente Milburn Electric Sedan Nic-L-Silver Pioneer (1958)] and of modern false starts see: GM EV1 (1996), Venturi (2005), Namir Concept but nothing seems to stick.

Good intentions indeed gas prices averaging $3.35 per and fewer young drivers toward car ownership, automakers are pushing their RD departments to vehicles that better fit evolving lifestyles—but these lightweight, hybrid and electric vehicles are paltry offerings no apparent relevance to today’s It’s talk without

Aside from Tesla’s S, BMW’s i8 and Porsche’s 918 Spyder are the most promising of the lot, speaking. The i8 is due out next spring, and the technology in the 2015 918 has already its mettle on the race course.

I like what the C-X17 and represent—and indeed, the forward-thinking that all of these cars is crucial to the auto industry. I appreciate the C-X17’s four-adult configuration, panoramic roof and trim and the C-X75’s admirable top (200-plus mph) and stylish

I just wish we could more than four and a pretty face.

*Tesla the one exception; Fisker has fallen But that’s for a different post.
