The other car companies are busy making SUVs and high-utility crossovers. But Koenigsegg is bringing in a super-coupe. Gemera is the brand’s first four-seater. It marks the starting of a new era. With scissor doors, and massively high power-terrain, it allows for pure electric driving. With a shape inspired from an egg, it is practically a road-trip vehicle. Christian von Koenigsegg, the CEO says he’s been planning this car since 2003. He wanted to make sure every seat is spacious and comfortable.
The seats are slim and made from hollow carbon-fiber monocoque. They weigh only 37.5 pounds. The seats integrate back into the bottom. The scissor doors make sure the ingress and egress is simple and don’t require moving the front seats.
The rest of the interior focuses on luxury. Cameras replace the side-view mirrors. The seats are heated and cooled. Both the front and rear have large infotainment touch-screens for various controls. Each seat has a hot and cold cup holder. The audio system has 11 speakers.
Not only is the ride all comfy and cozy, but packs a powerful power-train. It claims to have 1700 bhp and 2581 lb-ft of torque. The Gemera can sprint from 0-62 mph in 1.9 seconds. The high speeds are accomplished with a combination of 3 electric motors, a twin-turbocharged 2.0 L 3 cylinder camless gas engine. It also has an all-wheel drive, all-wheel torque vectoring and all-wheel steering.
The Gemera is all eco-conscious using a carbon fiber chassis and body, including the wheels. The 800-V, 15 kWh battery takes the car for approximately 31 miles of full electric driving. The Gemera is also flex-fuel vehicle. So it can run on Gen 2.0 ethanol or CO2-neutral methanol.
The production of the Gemera is only limited to 300 units.
