Koenigsegg Automotive is pleased to announce that the factory’s full allocation of Koenigsegg Regeras has now been sold.

The Regera represents a turning point for Koenigsegg. With 80 units to be produced, the Regera program is the largest single vehicle series in Koenigsegg’s history and the first time that the Swedish artisan carmaker has offered a two-vehicle lineup. The Regera, a vehicle suited to grand touring, sits alongside Koenigsegg’s more track-focused road car, the Agera RS. Together, they offer the pinnacle of high performance motoring for all seasons.

The Regera is a tour-de-force of technology. It combines battery technology that is more akin to a race car than a road car, along with Koenigsegg’s own prodigious twin-turbo V8 engine to produce 1500hp and over 2000Nm of torque.

The electric drive system consists of three electric motors, one on the crankshaft and one on each of the two rear axles. These electric motors produce 670hp in total and are powered by a battery pack capable of enormous rates of both discharge and recharge (117C and 60C respectively), all while weighing just 66kg with coolant. This power-to-weight ratio – more than 10hp per kilogram of mass – has never been seen in a road-legal electric drive system prior to the Regera.

This power, along with 1,100hp from the internal combustion engine, is directed to the rear wheels via the unique and revolutionary Koenigsegg Direct Drive system (KDD). KDD was developed by Koenigsegg to save both weight and mechanical losses by removing the vehicle’s transmission. KDD uses a hydraulic coupling with lock-up capability to gradually feed power from the internal combustion engine to build on the electric power used to accelerate from standstill. The end result is seamless acceleration from zero to over 400 km/h – in as little as 20 seconds.

“The Regera is a new high watermark for Koenigsegg Automotive” said company founder and CEO, Christian von Koenigsegg. “It has been our greatest technical challenge and as such, it is also our greatest technical triumph. That our customers and dealers have seen and appreciated the work we’ve done on the Regera is a source of great pride for everyone at Koenigsegg.”

    Hey Mr. Wade!

    Congratulations Koenigsegg! It really is a landmark achievement for you guys to have your largest ever vehicle series sold out! And now I guess the world will be on the watch for the Koenigsegg Regera, now that there are 80 of them out on the road. Maybe a lucky few will see one flash by long enough for a picture, because that’s the closest anyone else will get, unless they’re lucky![Hopefully I am too! :P]

    And also, thank you so much for being the Regera be in Need for Speed Payback! You have no idea what this means to some of us who will play the game, and then again, for those of us do, THAT will be the closest thing to a test drive of the Regera…..

    I really hold you guys at Koenigsegg at awe for the progress you have made over the years and this new milestone has made it permanent! I wish you all the very best for exploring the road of progress that lies ahead of you! Congratulations again to you and your team Mr. von Koenigseggg

    Waiting eagerly for your next bit of news,
    Nimalan S. R.

    [P.S. – Ummm…..now that the Regera is all but completely accounted for, do you personally think it is time to reveal the Ageras successor, Mr. Wade? And do forgive me for asking you Mr. Wade, but I think it has been quite some time since the last time I asked you about it and I had quite forgotten when I did. And I am really looking forward to it.]
