Electrification may be the next big thing, but that doesn't mean everyone has given up on combustion. Koenigsegg wants to make a gas guzzler that's not only stronger than an EV, but just as eco-friendly.
Speaking with Top Gear, company founder Christian von Koenigsegg revealed that they're working with the National Electric Vehicle Sweden to develop a $1.15 million hybrid supercar that will be "completely CO2 neutral."
This would supposedly be accomplished by melding a camless freevalve combustion engine technology with electrical assistant parts. One example given was the ability to cold-start the vehicle using pure alcohol. This would result in a lightweight but powerful vehicle that would be better for the planet and less dependent on electricity.
Christian looked toward Tesla, VW, and other brands, and saw their ongoing struggles to produce batteries and sustainable charging to consumers. He sees this vehicle as a solution to that.
The vehicle will still sport the automaker's signature styling, but not much else was said about the vehicle. With any luck, more details will be released before next year, and it will hit production not long after.
