Koenigsegg kicked off a new era with the announcement of the Regera at the 2015 Geneva Auto Show. The limited-series megacar is a hybrid, with three electric motors combined with a twin-turbo V8 to produce over 1,500hp. What’s more? The car is equipped with a revolutionary powertrain technology called the Koenigsegg Direct Drive. The single gear system among other things, eliminates the traditional gearbox system, making the car lighter and more efficient.
The Swedish carmaker has since followed the Regera announcement with the Jesko - a track-focused road-legal car billed as the Agera replacement. There will also be the Jesko Absolut variant, a hardcore road rocket aimed solely at cracking the 300 mph barrier and establishing itself as one of the fastest production cars ever (watch out Bugatti).
In March 2020, Koenigsegg launched its first four-seater. It is called the Gemera. Limited to 300 units, it promises a spacious interior, modern creature comforts and proper hypercar performance.
It’s going to be a busy year for Koenigsegg. The Regera production is still ongoing and customer deliveries of the Jesko are expected to start sometime in Spring. The Gemera will follow early in 2023, implying that final assembly will also begin in some form in 2022.
On December 31 2021, Koenigsegg teased us with a Facebook post that shows a silhouette of what seems to be an upcoming hypercar. However,we will leave that out for now as there is no information available and it is unlikely to join the existing 2022 lineup.
