Koenigsegg made the surprise reveal of the new Gemera, the company’s first-ever four-seater model that’s been described as a “Mega-GT” by the company’s boss Christian von Koenigsegg.
“The Gemera is a completely new category of car where extreme megacar meets spacious interior and ultimate environmental consciousness,” said Koenigsegg. “We call it a Mega-GT.”
The Swedish supercar maker made the reveal of the new Gemera from their stand at the canceled Geneva Motor Show.
The new Gemera can comfortably fit four passengers and their carry-on luggage inside its cabin, which is accessed by a pair of massive dihedral doors. The wheelbase is 3 meters long (118 inches), ensuring there’s plenty of space inside.
As expected from the first four-seat Koenigsegg, the cabin of the new Gemera is filled with creature comforts like front and rear seat central infotainment displays, front and rear wireless phone chargers, Apple CarPlay, On board internet and Wi-Fi, 11 speaker state of the art sound system, exterior and interior cameras, 4 reading lights, a three-climate zone control and even dual cup-holders for each passenger.
The highlight of the new Gemera is of course the new plug-in hybrid powertrain which produces a combined 1,700 HP and 2,581 lb-ft (3,500 Nm) of torque. Koenigsegg combined no less than three electric motors with its innovative twin-turbo 2.0-liter three-cylinder Freevalve engine, which is named the Tiny Friendly Giant (TFG).
The small Freevalve three-cylinder engine produces a very impressive 600 HP and 442 lb-ft (600 Nm) of torque on its own, with the remaining 1,100 HP coming from the three electric motors – one for each rear wheel and the third one mounted on the crankshaft of the engine.
Koenigsegg says that the new Genera might be a “Mega-GT” but it can outperform several hypercars on a straight line, quoting a 0-62 mph (100 km/h) in 1.9 seconds and promising a 0-400 km/h (248 mph) at a record-matching pace.
