The result is widening the side deflectors of the front intakes, allowing air to flow behind the front wheels. The air then slides along the doors, through the rear wheels and out from the huge rear openings. This results in a reduction in the total flow path and drag.
Almost 60 percent of energy used by a car at highway speeds are spent countering air friction. As such a layer of microscopic ripples of piezoelectric cells, covers the body of the XKX concept which produces electricity that it feeds to the vehicle's battery.
I like the idea Jaguar has implemented to improve aerodynamics as much as possible, but I wouldn't call the car exactly a looker. Also, personally I do not see any resemblance to the beautiful Jaguar E-Type besides the mild bulge on the hood. What do you guys think?
