The PHEV Gemera is the 1st four-seater super car from Koenigsegg
KOENIGSEGG GEMERA: The Koenigsegg company was started in 1994 to create a world class perfect super car. The 22 year old Christian von Koenigsegg had a clear vision to see his dream car into the reality. With the help of small team Christian successfully completed the 1st prototype in 1996.
Now a lot of things have been changed except the core philosophy of Koenigsegg- “focused solely on performance“.
The company design and manufacture only the limited numbers of performance car from scratch. With their advance
The Gemera- A family super car
The show must go on. Yes! Koenigsegg has always taken the industry benchmark at the next level but this time at the Geneva International Motor Show (Virtual show only- as GIMS is cancelled this year) the company presented its first mid engine plug-in hybrid production ready super car.
The word “Gemera” is a combination of the two Swedish words – “Ge” (give) and “Mera” (more) signifies “to give more”. In real this amazing car have everything incorporated into access like- it’s a 4-wheel drive, 4-wheel steer, 4-seater, tremendous power, torque and much more.
Now this will be the first time your money could buy a 4-seater super car for you. Not only that now a family of four people can experience the tremendous power of this super car all together. Let’s come further to know the core of this beast.
Powertrain system of Gemera
The car is having mid-mounted engine and front wheel drive. The torque shaft connects the TFG ICE engine which is placed longitudinally and electric motor on the crank to the front axle. There are total 3 electric motors: one electric motor (800V 450kW power and 1000
Total power= 500 HP + 500 HP + 600 HP + 400 HP = 2000 HP.
In above calculation the 500 HP is coming from the each motor fitted near both the rear wheels, 600 HP is coming from the TFG 2.0L IC engine and 400 HP
But due to the limitation of the battery the actual power remains only
Total theoretical power and torque in the Gemera:
|eMotor near left side rear wheel
|TFG 2.0L IC engine
|eMotor at crankshaft
|Total Ouput (Power & Torque)
Both side electric motors reach rated power of 500
Understanding the power-flow
Both side electric motors reach rated power of 500 hp and 1000 Nm of torque. They each have a single speed gearbox before sending power to the rear wheels independently. There is a timely friendly giant or TFG in between the motors. The TFG is a three-cylinder internal combustion engine which is placed longitudinally and enough to produce the 600 horsepower in 600 Nm of torque. Another electric motor is mounted on the end of crankshaft which produce additional 400 horsepower and 500 Nm of torque. So, if you add all together then it comes to 2000 horsepower though the actual output is about 1700 horsepower as the battery has limits to how much power it can supply and Motors and engines make peak power at different times.
The Gemera’s Power-Torque curve
Now, let’s understand this power-torque curve. If you add the rated power of all three motors then you get (500hp + 500hp + 400hp) up to 1400
The engine and 3rd motor (mounted on the crankshaft) actually send power to the front wheels exclusively. The power is sent through a carbon fiber torque
Gemera battery pack
Powering all of the electric Motors is a 16.6 kWh 800 Volt battery pack. The pack is good for 50 kilometers or about 31 miles of electric only range and can be charged using the engine through regenerative breaking or by plugging the car. In
The Gemera interior
A lot of things are there
With four seats, four-wheel drive, three electric motors, a 600bhp three-cylinder engine, 1700bhp, 0-100
Features like active ride height suspension, stylish and eye catching suicide doors and many more make this PHEV completely different product in the market.
