Jaguar to build hybrid supercar in UK

Jaguar has unveiled plans to build a £700,000 ($1.15m) petrol-electric hybrid supercar in the UK called the C-X75.

It will build 250 cars in partnership with Formula 1 team Williams F1.

The move is part of a £5bn investment plan, announced by Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) in March at the Geneva motor show, to launch 40 "significant new products" over the next five years.

Carl-Peter Forster is the CEO of Tata Motors, the company which owns JLR. He told the BBC that the car is at the ''cutting edge of automotive technology''.
