A Fully-Electric Koenigsegg In The New Future

It would seem as though Koenigsegg is looking to electrify its future products further as they’ve just signed a partnership with fellow Swedish electric car manufacturer NEVS.

The joint venture will surely create something fast, exotic and electric. No word yet on what it will be but we figure that VW’s announcement made last year about the coming of an electric Chiron could have served as motivation, at least in part.

The deal includes NEVS taking up to a 20% stake in Koenigsegg’s parent company thanks to a big cash injection. The €150m ($171.4m USD) will make NEVS minority stake-holders in the supercar company but that won’t be all. A further $150m investment on behalf of NEVS will see them take a 65% share in the new joint venture now being formed with Koenigsegg.

Both companies have recognized expertise in producing electrified performance cars and as such, we can only expect something incredible from their mutual experience.

The Regera, Koenigsegg’s first hybrid, combines a twin-turbo V8 with three electric motors, for a total of 1,500-horsepower. Its fully charged battery will permit the Regera to cover up to 35km without calling upon the internal combustion engine.

NEVS, or the National Electric Vehicle Sweden AB, is the company that acquired Saab from bankruptcy in 2012 and has since concentrated on the development of electric vehicles.

Bottom line, we think this may allow Koenigsegg to increase production numbers and make NEVS a world-class electric vehicle producer before long.

In the meantime, expect to meet “Ragnarok”, the all-new replacement for the track-focused Agera at this upcoming edition of the Geneva Motor Show in March.
