Jaguar Land Rover have come out with their plans for the 2012 Indian Auto Expo and both of the British automakers will be putting up on display two very interesting concepts at the exposition. From Jaguars end we have the Jaguar CX16 concept and as for Land Rover, they will be showcasing the Land Rover DC100 concept.
The Jaguar CX16 concept was first unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show earlier this year. Powering the CX16 will be a 3.0 liter, 375 horsepower V6 engine. Supplementing this is an electric motor producing up to 94HP, available to the driver at the push of a steering-wheel boost button. Allied to an eight-speed gearbox and mounted in a lightweight aluminum chassis this allows the C-X16 to sprint to 100 km/h in 4.4 seconds.
The interior of the Jaguar CX-16 concept showcases a new era of technologies such as multimodal rotary controls that incorporate miniature OLED screens, which reconfigure to reflect the different functions that can be performed via the controls, all of which are designed for maximum compatibility between sports car needs and everyday usability.
Turning over to the Land Rover DC100 concept, the DC100 is set to be the replacement for the ageing Land Rover Defender. The exterior of the DC100 is characterized by the fundamental design elements like the short front & rear overhangs, four-square stance and superb ground clearance. Powering the Land Rover Dc100 is a 2.0 liter 4-cylinder diesel engine with hybrid compatibility. The engine is mated to an 8speed transmission with Intelligent Stop / Star and Intelligent four-wheel drive with torque vectoring and Driveline Disconnect.
