As a New Brand Category
Koenigsegg, a manufacturer of exclusive hyper sports cars, has always produced only two-seat hypercars. As one of the few brands in this exclusive segment, it has expanded its offer to include the Koenigsegg Gemera, the first four-seat thoroughbred. With its new addition, the brand has created a new class in which it is unlikely to have long competition.
The Gemera has a 2.0-liter two-liter twin-cylinder engine with 600 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque. And it has no camshafts. Yes, this small triple product uses Koengisegg Freevalve's remarkable technology. It is also a FlexFuel engine designed to operate with renewable alcohol. Combines with an incredible 1700 horsepower hybrid system and a 2581 lb-ft torque. Koenigsegg claims to hit 62 km / h in 1.9 seconds, which is sweet.
"Electric cars are great and it's difficult to produce cells fast enough for worldwide implementation," said Christian Von Koenigsegg's founder. fill it with renewable alcohol and fill it with electricity, you can be CO2-neutral and eco-friendly like a pure electric car. "
This is also Koenigsegg's first all-wheel-drive car, with an electric motor driving the front axle. There's a hydraulic clutch at each output shaft, which allows for torque vectoring across the axle. Each rear wheel has a 500-hp electric motor, too, because one is simply not enough.
"The chassis of this car is truly state of the art," Koenigsegg said. "We can play with so many variables to make it steady like a freight train on the Autobahn, and agile around the corners around the track." In addition to the torque vectoring, the Gemera offers rear-wheel steering for extra agility and stability.
Of course, the monocoque and bodywork are made entirely from carbon fiber. It will be a bit heavy though, which isn't a surprise given the large interior, batteries and electric motors. Koenigsegg is aiming for around 4144 pounds.
The small engine allows for an interior that Koenigsegg says is as big as any GT car's, plus two trunks for your luggage. Those swing-up doors allow for easy rear-seat ingress—and are fitted with sensors so you don't bonk them on your low garage ceiling—and the rear seats have child-seat anchor points. So you can bring your kids along. In your Koenigsegg. Pricing hasn't been announced yet, nor have production figures. Don't expect it to be cheap, and do expect all to sell out.
