Koenigsegg has unveiled the new Gemera at the Geneva International Motor Show, though there was no live audience available for the event, the brand decided to digitally unveil the Gemera at their pavilion. The decision comes due to the recent appearance of the COVID-19 (Corona Virus) disease in Switzerland because of which an injunction was imposed by the Federal Council leading to the complete cancellation of the event.

The Koenigsegg Gemera claims to the world’s first Mega-GT car that can comfortably seat 4 adult passengers thanks to the car’s 3000mm wheelbase and enormous 4975mm length. The Gemera is 1988mm in width and comes with a total height of 1295mm. In terms of its styling, the Koenigsegg Gemera features a sloping bonnet that meets the apron on the front which has a large mesh air dam with a front splitter, LED headlamp units with a three-dimensional effect, a large curved panoramic windscreen, large dihedral doors with split windows, 21-inch front and 22-inch rear alloy wheels, a sloped back rear glass, LED taillights, a ducktail spoiler, large aero-ducts on the rear apron along with a diffuser and high mounted exhaust with their outlets flanking the rear window. 

On the inside, the Koenigsegg Gemera features a multilayered dashboard with a 13-inch free-standing touchscreen infotainment system, a colour driver’s information display, a squircle control mounted steering wheel, contoured sports seats, quilted pattern on the door pads, displays for the camera ORVMs and a minimalist design concept. 

Powering the Gemera is a 2.0-litre three-cylinder twin-turbocharged internal combustion engine that produces 600 hp of power and 600 Nm of torque. The internal combustion engine can run on flex fuel and is claimed to be carbon neutral if powered by the correct source of fuel. The midship mounted ICE engine is coupled to an 800V 16.6 kWh liquid-cooled battery and three electric motors, two on the rear axle and one powering the crankshaft. The ICE engine powers the front axle through a Hydracoup Direct Drive transmission. The combined total output of the plug-in hybrid engine is 1700 hp and 3500 Nm of torque including the Hydracoup. The Gemera can provide a driving range of 950 kms thank to the 75-litre fuel tank and an electric-only range of 50 km making a combined range of 1000 km.

Koenigsegg plans to make only 300 examples of the 4-seater sports car with prices expected to be around USD 1 million.
