The World's First Mega-GT and Koenigsegg's First For Four
Ultimate performance has belonged to the world of two-seaters with very limited luggage space – until now. The Gemera is the world’s first Mega-GT and Koenigsegg’s first four-seater. Extreme megacar meets spacious interior and ultimate environmental consciousness.
Extreme megacar meets spacious and practical interior
The Gemera seats four large adults comfortably with space catering to their carry-on luggage, meaning the Koenigsegg megacar experience can be shared with family and friends.
The notion behind Gemera’s name – a combination of the two Swedish words – “ge” (give) and “mera” (more) signifies “to give more”. A suitable name for a car that adds features and functions without taking away anything that makes it a true megacar.
It is not often one can say a new category of car has been created. But in the case of the Gemera it has to be believed – the Mega-GT.
The Gemera is limited to an edition of 300 cars.
Since the birth of the company more than 25 years ago, Koenigsegg has been driven to create the ultimate performance car.
Despite being a four-seater, the Gemera easily outperforms most two-seat megacars, both combustion and electric. Still, the focus of the Gemera is taking on long-range public roads – family trips, in comfort, style and safety with never-before-experienced performance.
With its 1.27 megawatts of power and 3500 Nm of torque, the Gemera goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 1.9 seconds and to 400 km/h in under 20 seconds.
The Gemera comes with the most amazing sound from a 3-cylinder engine ever.
The Tiny Friendly Giant
The Gemera yields a combined power output of 1700 bhp or 1.27 MW. The three electrical motors – one for each rear wheel and one on the crankshaft of the engine have a combined output of 800 kW or 1100 bhp.
The Gemera’s 2-liter 3-cylinder dry sumped twin-turbo Freevalve engine, named the Tiny Friendly Giant (or TFG for short) adds another 450 kW or 600 bhp.
The TFG is a progressive outlook on the powertrains of tomorrow. The TFG offers a lighter, more efficient cradle-to-grave solution compared to any combustion engine before it. Combined with electrification, the Gemera can be argued to be cleaner than a long-range EV, by using next-generation combustion technology designed for next-generation renewable liquid fuels, together with a small battery plug-in electrification.
The Gemera, if plugged in and filled with Gen 2.0 ethanol or CO2 neutral methanol like Vulcanol or any mix thereof, becomes at least as CO2 neutral as a pure electric car. Before these second-generation renewable fuel sources are more accessible, the Gemera can also be driven on E85 and in worst case normal petrol.
Plugged in to go further
Equipped with three electric motors, the Gemera can drive completely silent up to 340 km/h, and the powerful 800V battery offers in itself a range of up to 50 km.
The silence in EV mode disguises the true battle cry of the Gemera. When the TFG is activated and the gas pedal hits the floor the Gemera comes alive with a riotous roar as it disappears into the horizon.
All-wheel steering and torque vectoring The 3000 mm wheelbase gives unprecedented comfort and straight-line stability. The rear-wheel steering makes sure the Gemera corners with agility and can achieve a turning radius only seen in smaller cars. At high speed, the rear-wheel steering also gives even better directional control.
The mix of all-wheel steering and all-wheel torque vectoring gives limitless tunability and adaptability of steering and driving feel, making it possible for the Gemera to be one of the most fun and safe cars on the planet.
Safety in focus
The Gemera is one of the safest megacars out there and it is designed for world-wide homologation. The Gemera has a very strong carbon fiber monocoque, six smart airbags, stability control, TC, ABS and ADAS 2.5. It lacks nothing in ultimate safety.
The all-wheel steering and all-wheel drive and all-wheel torque vectoring give the Gemera maximum opportunity to offer a safe, stable and exhilarating drive. ISOFIX is available for both rear seats.
100% four-seater, 100% Koenigsegg
The Gemera is the first of its kind in a completely new vehicle category. Still, it has clear ties to all previous Koenigsegg cars and their Swedish and understated design roots.
The Gemera maintains many recognizable Koenigsegg traits like its wrap-around jet fighter inspired windshield, the hidden A-pillars, the simple shapes, the short overhangs and the large side air intakes.
The front design is inspired by the first-ever Koenigsegg prototype – the Koenigsegg CC from 1996.
Of course, the Gemera features giant full-length Koenigsegg Automated Twisted Synchrohelix Actuation Doors (KATSAD) that open wide. The doors are unhindered by the absence of B-pillars, thanks to a strong carbon monocoque. The door openings reveal an impressive four-seater space that boasts equal ease of access, comfort and respect for both front and rear passengers.
The world’s first Mega-GT.
Engine and Drivetrain
The Koenigsegg Gemera´s engine is small. At the same time, it is big when it comes to power, torque and sound. Still, it is small when it comes to emissions and consumption. In short - it is a contradiction of an engine, developed and created by Koenigsegg and its sister company, Freevalve. Therefore, it has been named the “Tiny Friendly Giant” – or TFG for short. Being a two-liter three-cylinder engine, the TFG is future-proofed given its extreme performance, reduced fuel consumption and lowered emissions – not to forgetting its ability to run on second-generation CO2 neutral renewable fuels.
The Future of Performance and Efficiency
The Gemera's Tiny Friendly Giant Engine
The Gemera complements the TFG with three electric motors and the patented single-gear Koenigsegg Direct Drive (KDD) transmission. The total output is a combined 1700 bhp or 1.27 MW of power and 3500 Nm of torque.
The immense torque combined with the relatively low curb weight of 1850 kg means that the Gemera can go from 0 to 100 km/h in only 1.9 seconds and from 0 to 400 km/h in record matching pace. To top things off, it also comes fitted with a lightweight 800V battery which enables the Gemera to go full electric for up to 50 km.
Koenigsegg Direct Drive
Koenigsegg Direct Drive (KDD)
Traditional hybrids represent a compromise when it comes to weight, complexity, cost and packaging. The Gemera, on the other hand, together with its sibling the Regera, is a new breed of hybrid. Its main advantage? Providing ultimate response from standstill to top speed in the form of a single gear direct drive at lower weight and higher efficiency than what any other hybrid solution can offer.
During highway travel, for instance, the KDD reduces drivetrain losses compared to traditional transmissions or CVT by 3-5% as there is no step-up or step-down gear working in series with the final drive – just direct power from the engine to the wheels with the torque-converting HydraCoup locked up.
Torque is crucial, especially when accelerating to extreme speeds in one gear. In the Gemera, this is facilitated by the torque-converting HydraCoup – it converts the combined 1100 Nm coming from the TFG and front e-motor to almost double its torque up to 3000 rpm. That is why the Gemera has 3500 Nm of torque from standstill and why it can accelerate from 0-400 km/h in a single gear.
All-wheel drive, all-wheel torque vectoring, and
The separate rear e-motors enable torque vectoring and reverse. The front axle has an open differential with a wet clutch pack for each output shaft, also enabling torque vectoring. This means that the Gemera has all-wheel drive, all-wheel torque vectoring, and all-wheel steering, as it also has independent rear-wheel steering – offering maximum traction and safety, and one exciting driving experience. The Gemera also comes with active ride height to complement driving conditions.
Additionally, the all-wheel torque of over 11000 Nm is clawed into the ground from standstill, creating quite the undertaking for the Gemera’s massive and grippy Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires.
Combined power output of 1700 bhp
Power output from the three motors – one for each rear wheel producing 500 bhp and 1000 Nm, and one E-motor on the crankshaft that produces an extra 400 bhp and 500 Nm to power the front wheels – add up to 1400 bhp as individuals and 1100 bhp when combined. In addition to the TFG’s 600 bhp (at 7500 rpm) and torque of 600 Nm (2000 rpm to 7000 rpm), the combined power output of the Gemera is 1700 bhp or 1.27 MW.
The 800V battery pack
Taking cues from the Regera, the Gemera’s 800V, 15 kWh battery will provide an amazing 900 kW of discharge and up to 200 kW of recharge. Every cell is carefully monitored for voltage, state of charge, health and temperature; and the cells are enclosed in a carbon fiber casing for efficiency, safety and stability. The battery is placed in the most protected area of the car – under the front seat and in the carbon-aramid chassis tunnel.
The Gemera can travel up to 50 km in EV only mode and up to an additional 950 km highway cruise speed in hybrid mode, before needing a fill-up – totaling a 1000 km range. This makes the Gemera a true continent crossing family-oriented “Autobahn” rocketship.

Extreme megacar meets spacious and practical interior
Gemera seats four adults comfortably with space catering to their carry-on luggage, meaning the Koenigsegg megacar experience can now be shared with family and friends. It signifies a dream that was years in the making and a revolutionary new vehicle category with an innovative automotive design to match.
A true four-seater with a sporty interior
All four seats all have the same shape and are optimized for comfort with integrated memory foam for ideal support – a feature pioneered in the original Koenigsegg CC carbon bucket seat and the Koenigsegg One:1 seat. The rear seats are as comfortable as the front and the rear space is as celebrated as the front.
Steering wheel with graphics screens
The Gemera benefits from the active and intelligent steering wheel system first developed for the Jesko. It incorporates a leveled graphics screen in the center and haptic touch screen buttons on each spoke.
100% Koenigsegg design
The Gemera combines the exciting performance traits of a mid-engine two-seater megacar with the practicalities of a four-seater car with more luggage space – meaning the Koenigsegg megacar experience can now be shared with family and friends. As a Mega-GT and Koenigsegg’s first four-seater, the Gemera signifies a revolutionary new vehicle category with an innovative automotive design to match.
The Gemera is a true four-seater where the rear and front seats are equally celebrated and comfortable
Thanks to the lack of B-pillars, the Gemera’s cabin is essentially unobstructed for both front and rear passengers to enter or exit, with no need to move the front seats to get in and out of the rear

The door openings reveal an impressive four-seater space that boasts equal ease of access, comfort and respect for both front and rear passengers.
KOENIGSEGG AUTOMATED TWISTED SYNCHROHELIX ACTUATION DOORS (KATSAD)
Koenigsegg’s patented dihedral synchro-helix doors are even more dramatic in this car, as they are much longer. The doors still open with the same tiny footprint as the added length of the door only makes it stand taller in its open position. That is the beauty of Christian von Koenigsegg’s door solution – it kind of magically disappears and is unobtrusive.
The Gerema's architecture boasts a robust and monolithic characteristics that takes inspiration from very early Koenigsegg designs
The essence of the megacar is obvious in the exterior but the fact that it's a four0seater is a complete surprise when the giant doors swing open
