When Jaguar unveiled the new C-X75 concept at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, the company seemed to have no interest in producing it. Instead that concept was said to be a look into the future of Jaguar”s design philosophy and “producing beautiful, fast cars powered by sustainable means.”

According to AutoCar, Jaguar is now planning on producing anywhere between 1,000 to 2,000 units of the Jaguar C-X75. Jaguar is playing around with two different levels of production – the lower one up to 1,000 units will see all units with more hand assembly and lower tooling costs, the 2,000 unit level will have more automation but higher tooling costs.

That’s not the only thing Jaguar engineers are scratching their heads over. The two gas micro-turbines in the CX-75 will also have to wait 5-7 years to be viable for production.

“We”re talking two-to-three years for implementation of the gas turbine technology, then another three-to-four years to integrate into a vehicle,” said Jaguar’s head of advanced powertrain Tony Harper.

Who knows what Jaguar will be thinking in 5-7 years.

Refresher:  Power for the Jaguar C-X75 comes from four 195-hp electric motors ““ one for each wheel – producing a total of 780-hp and a peak torque of 1,180 lb ft. On battery power alone, the C-X75 has a range of 68 miles. After power from the lithium-ion batteries runs out, the C-X75 uses two gas micro-turbines that produce a total of 188-hp and extend the range to 560 miles. Mated to a single-speed transmission, the Jaguar C-X75 goes from 0-62 mph in 3.4 seconds with a top speed of 205 mph.
