Introducing ‘Autoskin’ Robotics For The New Koenigsegg Regera
- Robotic mechanism opens and closes all doors on the Koenigsegg Regera by remote control
- Practical, hands-free access to all areas of the vehicle
- System adds less than 5 kilograms to the weight of the Regera
- Includes “Show Mode” to open/close all vehicle doors at once
Koenigsegg has recently refurbished the former showroom area within the company’s Ängelholm production facility, transforming it into a new prototype workshop for the development of future vehicles and technology. The first offering from the new prototype workshop is a system available on the new Koenigsegg Regera, called ‘Autoskin’.
Autoskin allows the owner of the Regera to open and close the front luggage door, the rear engine cover door and both passenger and driver doors by remote control. The system uses lightweight hydraulics, soft-close mechanisms and proximity sensors to operate the doors in an effortless, fluid and safe motion that is as practical as it is beautiful.
“People often comment on our cars looking spectacular when all the doors of the vehicle are open,” said Christian von Koenigsegg. “Our new Autoskin system enhances this, adding a new level of beauty, practicality and sophistication to the most exciting new hypercar in the world – the Koenigsegg Regera.”
The distinctive key that will come with the Regera includes control buttons that allow owners to control each door individually. The remote also includes a button for ‘Show Mode’, which will open all doors and raise the rear spoiler on the Regera all at the same time.
The Autoskin system adds less than 5kgs in weight.
