2011 Jaguar B99


The 2011 Jaguar B99 concept car is a compact, four-door sedan
 (4.5 m long, 1.35 m tall, 1.95 m wide, 2.8 m wheelbase)
that fits into the D segment. In terms of technological innovation, the B99 uses a pure hybrid power system designed and developed by Bertone Energy, the newest Bertone division dedicated to renewable energy research. Bertone Energy power system includes a thermal engine for range extension and two electric motors which provide propulsion for the rear wheels.





The B99 is powered by a modular, Extended Range Hybrid system which futuristic utilizes twin 150kW (204 CV) electric engines connected to the inboard side of the rear axle for propulsion and a lightweight 1.400 cm3 thermal engine producing 125 kW-170 CV for range extension, giving a combined power output of 425 kW or 570 CV.
The thermal engine charges the Lithium-ion batteries while driving allowing for a theoretical range of 700 kilometers of highway driving between fill-ups with a carbon dioxide output of around 30 g Co2/km. The B99 can also travel in full electric mode offering zero emissions for 100 km.




The Dynamic Imbalance of the B99 Concept is this contrast between “linear and leaping”, the evolutionary trend which suggests a possible Jaguar design language of the future. With the 2011 Jaguar B99 concept car, Bert-one establishes a new record in its 99 year history as the only Italian designer to have created five different Jaguars .
