Koenigsegg Gemera hybrid

Koenigsegg Gemera hybrid

The Gemera will coddle and comfort, but it will also thrill with its high-tech hybrid powertrain. Koenigsegg claims 1,700 bhp and 2,581 lb-ft of torque, and a zero-to-62-mph sprint in 1.9 seconds. This is accomplished with a combination of three electric motors, a twin-turbocharged 2.0-liter three-cylinder camless gas engine, and a direct-drive transmission. It also has all-wheel drive, all-wheel torque vectoring, and all-wheel steering.

Two of those electric motors, each of which makes 500 bhp and 738 lb-ft of torque, are on the rear wheels. A third e-motor is attached to the engine crankshaft and makes 400 bhp and 369 lb-ft of torque. Simultaneously, these electric motors make 1,100 bhp. Working with the e-motor to propel the front wheels is what Koenigsegg calls the Tiny Friendly Giant (TFG) engine. It is rated at 600 bhp and 443 lb-ft of torque and uses the company's Freevalve technology.

The Gemera, which uses carbon fiber for the chassis, body, and wheels, is built to be eco-conscious, as well. An 800-V, 15-kWh battery allows up to approximately 31 miles of totally electric driving, and the car has an overall range of 621 miles. The Gemera is a flex-fuel vehicle, too, so it can run on Gen 2.0 ethanol or C02-neutral methanol. That means it could potentially be as C02-friendly as an electric vehicle, under certain circumstances.

Hmmm let's see 1100 electric hp equals .82 megawatt, 1026 amps at 800v no sag, so accelerate at this rate for about .6 seconds before draining the battery pack. That's useful. So a brief run provides enough heat to warm a school in Alaska. Almost big enough to be a surburban substation.

600 hp from two liters? Wow. That stomps every other car on this list by at least 50%.

15 kWh = 54 MJ = 54 MWs
54 MWs / .82MW = 65.85 s

That's enough for a full minute of all-out acceleration and some spare electrons for change.

600 hp 2.0 liter 3 cyl. twin turbo.

Then add in the 1100 hp. electric motors.

Compare that to my Metros 1.0 liter 3 cyl. non turbo 4 seater that has 55 hp, 58 ft. Lbs. of torque and a mind numbing 0-100 km in 20 seconds.


The Gemera is also supposedly capable of roughly 30 mpg which is not to shabby considering itís a super car.

What did surprise me the most about the Gemera, besides it being the first Koenigsegg with fewer than 8 cylinders, is the front-wheel drive relying on the ICE while the rear-wheel drive is all-electric, despite the ICE being mounted closer to the rear wheels.
