Maybe 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.
New Koenigsegg 2020 from the Stallbacka?
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 pure electric sports cars to a combustion engine. Unconfirmed information speaks about a “small” hyper car, which - as is customary at 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 factory is well suited for the construction of exclusive small series. Even in GM times there was the “Frickeboa” next to the regular band. Saab built the electric 9-3 station wagons there in small series for field tests in 2010. Pre-series vehicles were built 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.
