Koenigsegg's Epic 2022 Plans Include This New Hypercar

Teaser / Comments

Start the New Year with a fresh teaser. Nice.

As the clock struck midnight on January 1, 2022, Koenigsegg wasted zero time revealing to its millions of fans what it has in store for the New Year. Well, we don't know exactly what we're looking at here but there's no doubt this teaser is for another hypercar or a variation of an existing one like the Gemera or Jesko.

Released on its official Facebook page, this teaser included a very brief description: "Dear 2022, here's our New Year's resolution - More ultimate performance through clever engineering and optimal design. Here we go!" All we can see from the darkened silhouette is the shape of what's unmistakably a Koenigsegg but no other clear-cut details are visible. That's why it's called a teaser.

We know Koenigsegg is now in a position, both financially and technologically, where it can afford to take chances and expand beyond anything it's previously done. Christian von Koenigsegg himself has always been at the forefront of developing new technologies in-house. There is at least one exception, of course: batteries.

Koenigsegg worked with fellow hypercar company and EV technology powerhouse Rimac to develop a battery pack and a high-voltage PDU (power distribution unit) for the Regera. Future Koenigsegg creations will continue to benefit from this relationship. Von Koenigsegg and Mate Rimac are longtime friends and really don't view each other as rivals. Yes, they both build hypercars but Rimac is EV-only whereas Koenigsegg still utilizes combustion engines, like V8s, of its own design.

Eventually, we could see Koenigsegg going fully electric but that day isn't here yet. That's why we don't think this teaser is for an EV hypercar. Chances are it has Rimac battery tech packed in there. Whatever it is, we're excited and you should be, too.

The Swedish marque didn't give an indication as to when this unnamed model will debut but we can already guarantee it won't happen at Geneva in March because, sadly, that even has already been canceled due to coronavirus-related concerns. Regardless, Koenigsegg won't be silent this year. There are new hypercars to launch, after all.
