Koenigsegg Profile Information

  • In a world where it’s commonplace to like shifting, how does one make a driving experience fun, engaging and responsive without shifting? The Regera doesn’t shift – it doesn’t even have gears.

There was a huge amount of calibration work to make the car feel good, to make the sounds match the G-force in all situations. When you accelerate, you don’t just want to get a kick of electric power or feel your body smash into the seat without any (audio) warning. That also has to be accompanied by the sound of the engine. We had to be able to push it enough to make the engine change its sound so that the electric shove you’re getting makes sense.

Nothing can compare to the unique driving sensation in a Regera.

  • The paddle controls on the Regera are context-sensitive – for selecting the unlocking or locking of the Hydracoup while driving – a bit like a manual up or downshift. They also control R-N-D functions during parking. 

The Hydracoup is one of the key elements to the Koenigsegg Direct Drive – a bespoke-design torque converter with lock-up functionality. It is the link between the combustion engine and the electric drive, working to blend power from both sources into a seamless driving experience.

  • The Gemera can travel up to 50 km in full EV mode and an additional 950 km in highway cruise speed, before needing a fill-up – making it a true continent crossing family-oriented “Autobahn” rocket.
