      This is Koenigsegg's first four-seater. Unsurprisingly, it's unlike any other four-seater.
      [IMG]https://hips.hearstapps.com/rover/profile_photos/15d56ade-1ac5-43f8-b0be-4f0648657189.jpg?fill=1:1&resize=80:*[/IMG]
      Koenigsegg has always built two-seat super- and hypercars. But that's now changing. This is the Koneigsegg Gemera, the Swedish company's first four-seater. It's a remarkable new direction for the brand.
      The Gemera has a 2.0-liter twin-turbo three-cylinder with 600 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque. And it doesn't have camshafts. Yes, this tiny triple uses Koengisegg's remarkable Freevalve technology. This is also a FlexFuel engine designed to run on renewable alcohol. It combines with a hybrid system for an astonishing 1700 horsepower and 2581 lb-ft of torque. Koenigsegg claims it'll hit 62 mph in 1.9 seconds, which is bonkers.
      "Electric cars are great, and it's difficult to produce cells quickly enough for worldwide implementation," said company founder Christian Von Koenigsegg. "This is a parallel track, where you get a lighter car, more performance, C02 neutral, basically emission free...if you fill it up on renewable alcohol and fill it up with electricity, you can be as C02 neutral and as environmentally friendly as 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 as 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 fit 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.

      Wait so let me get this straight.

      A mid engined, 4 seat supercar with a crazy hybrid system and AWD?

      Damn I love Koenigsegg!!!!!

      They are by far my favorite super car, hyper car, crazy car manufacturer out there. They are always pushing the boundaries of innovation. Great stuff.

      WOW.


      Isn't the freevalve tech the same as an old prototype fitted to a Saab 9-5? Hope this really takes off.

      The idea is even older. British Leyland filed a patent for solenoid actuated valves in early 70's and the idea was toyed by others too with prototypes in the 80's.

      https://patents.google.com/patent/US3882833

      I love how this idea survived, even if it is just for a hypercar. It's finally real.

      Watch MrJWW's video on youtube. The car is awesome.

      They went with a 3 banger for a big piston size to make a deeper sound. It's got twin turbo's and each exhaust valve feeds one turbo. At low speeds, only one valve opens sending all exhaust gasses to one turbo to promote low rpm spool.

      500hp electric motor up front plus two 500hp electric motors at the rear. The gas engine direct drives the front wheels not the rear. It's only got one gear.

      1700hp and 2500 ft/lb of torque because in the word's of Christian Van Koenigsegg "it was the only way to get to 60 in under 2 seconds". LMFAO.

      It goes on and on. This car is crazy.

      I don't normally care much about supercars/hypercars, but this guy is so different and pushes the envelope so much that I can't help but be impressed. I think to come up with this stuff they sit around and get blasted on schnapps, then when they're sober they read the napkins and see if they can implement some of the crazier ideas.

      Kudos to Koenigsegg! Again!

      It sounds like an impressive package, but I think the proportions looks really off. Oh well it is not like I'm going to see many of them on the street anyway.

      I'll disagree with this notion. It looks quite handsome without being totally overcooked. Gives me Spyker vibes, which shouldn't be too surprising

      Yes and the other 650hp comes from a 3 cylinder twin turbo that can run on pure alcohol and has no valvetrain. That's amazing.

      Tesla would be way more amazing than the company is now. Highly likely I would have one in my garage actually.

      A shame that his bid for Saab wasn't accepted, it could have been incredible.

      Elon wishes he had half the talent of Christian.

      Koenigsegg Direct Drive (KDD)Traditional hybrids represent a compromise when it comes to weight, complexity, cost and packaging. The Gemera, on the other hand, together with its sibling the Regera, is a new breed of hybrid. Its main advantage? Providing ultimate response from standstill to top speed in the form of a single gear direct drive at lower weight and higher efficiency than what any other hybrid solution can offer.

      During highway travel, for instance, the KDD reduces drivetrain losses compared to traditional transmissions or CVT by 3-5% as there is no step-up or step-down gear working in series with the final drive – just direct power from the engine to the wheels with the torque-converting HydraCoup locked up.

      Torque is crucial, especially when accelerating to extreme speeds in one gear. In the Gemera, this is facilitated by the torque-converting HydraCoup – it converts the combined 1100 Nm coming from the TFG and front e-motor to almost double its torque up to 3000 rpm. That is why the Gemera has 3500 Nm of torque from standstill and why it can accelerate from 0-400 km/h in a single gear.

      All-wheel drive, all-wheel torque vectoring, and all-wheel steering
      The separate rear e-motors enable torque vectoring and reverse. The front axle has an open differential with a wet clutch pack for each output shaft, also enabling torque vectoring. This means that the Gemera has all-wheel drive, all-wheel torque vectoring, and all-wheel steering, as it also has independent rear-wheel steering – offering maximum traction and safety, and one exciting driving experience. The Gemera also comes with active ride height to complement driving conditions.

      Additionally, the all-wheel torque of over 11000 Nm is clawed into the ground from standstill, creating quite the undertaking for the Gemera’s massive and grippy Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires.

      Combined power output of 1700 bhp
      Power output from the three motors – one for each rear wheel producing 500 bhp and 1000 Nm, and one E-motor on the crankshaft that produces an extra 400 bhp and 500 Nm to power the front wheels – add up to 1400 bhp as individuals and 1100 bhp when combined. In addition to the TFG’s 600 bhp (at 7500 rpm) and torque of 600 Nm (2000 rpm to 7000 rpm), the combined power output of the Gemera is 1700 bhp or 1.27 MW.

      The 800V battery pack
      Taking cues from the Regera, the Gemera’s 800V, 15 kWh battery will provide an amazing 900 kW of discharge and up to 200 kW of recharge. Every cell is carefully monitored for voltage, state of charge, health and temperature; and the cells are enclosed in a carbon fiber casing for efficiency, safety and stability. The battery is placed in the most protected area of the car – under the front seat and in the carbon-aramid chassis tunnel.

      Range
      The Gemera can travel up to 50 km in EV only mode and up to an additional 950 km highway cruise speed in hybrid mode, before needing a fill-up – totaling a 1000 km range. This makes the Gemera a true continent crossing family-oriented “Autobahn” rocketship.
