Jaguar Electric Car?

Posted: September 29, 2010 in Miscellaneous

Jaguar has just done a beautiful job of creating simply awe inspiring looks.  Wow – imagine if most green cars looked half as good as this (and not like futuristic appliances).

Just reading up on the spec sheet – series plug in hybrid, will go 68 miles only on electric motors (all 4 mounted to each wheel), two mini gas turbine engines charge the battery to an overall extended range of 500 miles+, 205 mph top speed, 0-60 in 3.4 seconds!  Here’s the kicker:

The four electric motors provide torque-vectored, all-wheel drive traction and grip, essential in a car that produces 580kW (778bhp) and 1600Nm (1180lb ft) of torque.

It all has to be too good to be true but I so want to believe.
