Fully electric Koenigsegg hypercar could be coming soon

Electric-powered Koenigseggs may be just one product of a new partnership between the hypercar manufacturer and NEVS AB

Electric-powered Koenigseggs could be coming soon, as part of a strategic partnership between the hypercar company and electric specialist NEVS AB. The mission statement is ‘enabling the development of parallel vehicle models in slightly higher volumes, with emphasis on electrification’.

Further to that, and what informs our electric Koenigsegg prediction, is the idea of ‘strengthening growth opportunities in the hypercar segment’.

The partnership involves NEVS taking a 20 percent minority stake in Koenigsegg’s parent company, with a €150 million investment.

NEVS is putting in the money for a 65 percent stake, while Koenigsegg is committing intellectual property, tech licensing and design for its 35 percent stake. According to boss Christian Von Koenigsegg, it will “enable us to break ground into an untapped market segment”.

We’re assuming you know what Koenigsegg is. The company has been selling six- and seven-figure hypercars for almost 20 years now.

What is NEVS AB?

NEVS AB was founded in 2012 and was arguably the phoenix to rise from the ashes of Saab’s collapse. It’s an electric mobility company, and currently putting a reborn electric-powered version of the Saab 9-3 into production in China.

“We have both competencies and facilities to support Koenigsegg on their journey forward, something we look very much forward to,” said Kai Johan Jiang, Chairman of the Board of Directors at NEVS AB.

“This partnership will create the best conditions for Koenigsegg to accelerate growth in the hypercar market, as well as enabling us to break ground into an untapped market segment together with NEVS,” said Christian von Koenigsegg.

Sounds an awful lot like electric Koenigseggs to us, among other exciting things…
