New Koenigsegg 2020 from the Stallbacka?

Perhaps in 2020 there is still hope for a car production in Trollhättan. Swedish media and circles around NEVS report on a new, “small” sports car from Koenigsegg. It was already in May 2019 for this year announced, Since then, however, hardly any news has leaked out. The evidence is now condensed that the presentation on March 5 at the international motor Show will take place in Geneva.

In Switzerland, Koenigsegg has almost again traditionally booked a trade fair appearance. The show in Geneva is generally popular with small manufacturers, has its special charm and a manageable size. Koenigsegg has almost always used it as a podium in recent years to present new models or limited small runs. The presentation of the. Was spectacular during the last motor show Jeskowhich was sold out in no time.

What speaks for the presentation of one or more completely new vehicles is the fact that the Koenigsegg booth will be larger than usual. According to our information, it offers space for 3 vehicles. Since the Jesko is sold out, there might be two new products next to the Regera - in whatever form, as concept cars or ready for production.

The entry-level model of the Ängelholm brand should no longer come from Ängelholm. The manufactory is reserved for the millions-cost copies, the cheaper entry-level model is to be built in the former Saab factory. In much larger numbers than before, as Koenigsegg let know. Larger quantities can always be seen relative to the previous production in Ängelholm, because a three-digit number annually would be an inflationary quantity for Koenigsegg.

In theory, anything is possible. From a pure electric sports car to a combustion engine. Unconfirmed information speaks about a “small” hyper car, which - as is usual with Koenigsegg - is said to offer spectacular drive power. If she Freewalve Technology will be used, but is currently just as unsecured as the entire concept. A hybrid drive could be possible, and with the new one regera the manufacturer showed what is possible. The old Saab plant is well suited for the construction of exclusive small series. Already in GM times there was the “Frickeboa” next to the regular band. Saab built the electrical 9-3 station wagons for field trials in small series there. Pre-series vehicles were manufactured on this route, most recently NEVS assembled vehicles for China there.

Evergrande, the main owner of NEVS and the former Saab factory, joined Koenigsegg at € 150 million almost exactly a year ago. A joint venture between NEVS and Koenigsegg AB, which NEVS has capitalized with a further € 150 million, has been working together on the development of new vehicles since then. In Geneva, the first product of this collaboration could at least be seen as a concept vehicle.

  • I wonder what will come of it.

    In any case, the photo (or the montage) of Jesko in the dark alley appears to have been taken from a sci-fi movie. Cool image. I hope that burners, or at least hybrids, will be preserved. Technically, a great deal is still possible. Not just in the name of performance. Also in the name of efficiency and the environment. Especially with bio fuel ...

  • I'm not a NEVS friend but I keep my fingers crossed for Koenigsegg.

  • It looks exciting, it would be desirable for Trollhättan. It is also interesting that the workshops still have so much potential.
    And that the blog has published an article every day for the past four days is really remarkable for a blog that writes about cars that are no longer built.

  • Dream mode on: “Two exhibition spaces free? One will be the Koenigsegg Aero X, the other a 4-seater convertible in Saab style ”.

  • I think Koenigsegg is cool and I wish him and Trollhaettan every success!

  • Turning point? For the first time in what feels like 100 years, we speculate here about possible new cars. I think it's great, even if it's a Koenigsegg. The brand is really awesome, I like to read that.

  • In order to distance yourself from the Koenigsegg hypercars, it would make sense to revive the old sonorous name SAAB with the new model. Especially since one produces in the stable backa that would be obvious. You pay a few royalties to SAAB airplanes and hey - new SAABs fall out of the factory. That would be awesome.
