Jaguar Aim For CO2 Cuts

Alongside Jaguar’s carbon-fibre C-X75 hybrid supercar, Jaguar is unveiling a new swathe of C02 modifications to their cars in a specific bid to reduce tax on company car drivers.

Their new 3.0 V6 supercharged petrol engine, which will be housed in their F-Type Sports Cars, will features a 335 bhp unit emitting 224 g/km of CO2 (30 mpg), avoiding Band M road tax incurred by their obsolete 5.0 V8 engine.

Jaguar are also building a 161 bhp 2.2 diesel engine which cuts CO2 output from 149 g/km of CO2 in the XF saloon to 135 g/km of CO2 (55.4 mpg). A new 197 bhp 2.2 litre engine will also put out a comparatively conservative 135 g/km.
