The Koenigsegg carbon fiber tub chassis is built with an aluminum honeycomb core structure for increased crash protection. This chassis has 65,000 Nm per degree of torsional rigidity, more than any other vehicle in the world.
Rather than sourcing engines from another manufacturer, Koenigsegg manufactures its own engines. Their most powerful? A Koenigsegg V8 engine that’s lightweight and capable of over 1,300 hp.
Typically, the doors on sports cars are larger and need more space to open, and scissor doors open high, making it difficult to reach when seated. This is why Koenigsegg has created the dihedral synchro-helix doors which sweep outwards and upwards to open high enough to avoid curbs, as well as other vehicles to the sides. Now with the push of a button, the new Koenigsegg Regera mechanism automatically opens the doors for you.
Traditionally, supercar owners with a removable roof had to decide whether or not they were going to go “top down” or not before leaving the roof at home, but now, with the new designs from Christian von Koenigsegg, there’s an alternative. Drivers can have the convenience of a hardtop with the carbon fiber one-piece that can easily be removed and stored under the front hood.
This Z-shaped anti-roll bar on the Agera RS only has one pivot point instead of two in order to reduce friction and increase accuracy and response. The central parts are steel and the outer parts are carbon fiber rods.
Lighter wheels means quicker acceleration, more agile changes in direction, and more efficient braking. Newly released three-spoke carbon fiber wheels have been house-made and designed for the Koenigsegg Regera.
Top-mounting this rear wing means that the underside of the wing — the surface that provides the greatest aerodynamic effect — is not disturbed by the hardware that attaches the wing. The Regera has taken this idea one step further, with a wing design that integrates into the body of the car and rises when needed.
HydraCoup is basically a very advanced torque converter with lock-up functionality; the all-important linchpin that allows smooth and progressive power transfer from the combustion engine to the Regera’s single-speed driveline. HydraCoup will then gradually feed power from the internal combustion engine into the drivetrain until the HydraCoup locks up and the full power and torque of the ICE are applied.
The key components of the KDD system are:
3 electric motors, HydraCoup – an advanced lock-up torque converter, designed and developed in-house at Koenigsegg specifically for the Regera, Our Formula 1 grade, super-dense and super-compact battery pack.
Koenigsegg’s three axial flux electric motors are optimized in-house and are extremely power dense, making them a key-ingredient for the KDD.
Aside from providing extreme responsiveness from zero rpm, these electric motors also allow for torque vectoring, regenerative braking and energy conversion.
‘HydraCoup’ is a bespoke hydraulic coupling that we have developed in-house, specifically for the Regera. HydraCoup is basically a very advanced torque converter with a lock-up functionality; the all-important linchpin that allows smooth and progressive power transfer from the combustion engine to the single-speed driveline.
The battery pack is key to the Regera’s ability to deliver rapid acceleration. It is essentially Formula 1 grade technology. It weighs just 64 kg, which is incredibly light, given that it can discharge up to 500 kW of power.
How do these three elements work together to power Koenigsegg Direct Drive?
The Regera has a final drive ratio of 2.73:1, the equivalent to 7th gear in the Koenigsegg Agera. If you’ve ever tried to take off in 7th gear, you’ll understand the challenge we faced when developing Koenigsegg Direct Drive. There is simply not enough torque available in a regular car to start in such a high gear.
The Regera has two types of propulsion working together to move the car: electric propulsion and the internal combustion engine (ICE). The Regera’s ICE has 1,100hp and 1,250Nm of torque, but peak torque is not available at 0 rpm.
Starting from standstill is therefore compromised when using the ICE alone. This is where the Regera’s electric drive comes in.
The Regera’s electric drive system provides 670hp of drive. More importantly, however, it provides 3500 Nm of torque direct to the rear wheels(equivalent of 1000 nm on the crank), which is available from standstill up to 3500 crank rpm, where the electric torque starts to taper off, even though it will still assist all the way up to 8000 crank rpm.
It’s this massive power and torque delivery in combination with the ICE that enables the Regera to minimise mechanical losses by removing the traditional transmission. The instant torque from the electric motors from 0 rpm and upwards acts like the lower gears of a traditional transmission, getting the car away smoothly from standstill.
The ICE is not the primary driving force for the wheels from standstill but the HydraCoup will gradually feed power from the ICE into the drivetrain until the HydraCoup locks up, which means the combustion engines is driving the wheels mechanically without a traditional transmission. This gives lowest possible losses of any transmission in this mode.
The Regera’s motorsport-grade cell technology can discharge power approximately 10 times faster than a typical pure electric car, and can accept re-gen around 10 times faster, too. If you are cruising on ICE power alone at 150 km/h and floor the accelerator, the KDD system will engage electric drive to help push from 150 to 250 km/h in just 3.2 sec. As you coast back down to 150, the ICE system and recharge via de-acceleration begins to fill the battery so that you’re ready to do it all again – and again, and again.
The KDD system allows the Regera to be super responsive and smooth at the same time. It will provide the fastest 0-400 km/h acceleration time in the world thanks to its unique power delivery, vastly reduced mechanical losses, and much lower component weight.
This is what we call it when a car operates all body closures automatically at the touch of a button. Autoskin features soft-closing mechanisms, giving the Regera a sophisticated feel. The fully robotized body system adds a mere 11 pounds to the total weight of the car, making full robotization a very desirable option.
At the heart of the Koenigsegg Regera’s game-changing new Direct Drive system is a battery pack akin to Formula 1 grade electrification applied to a road car for the first time. The Regera produces 670 electric hp, and all that from a battery pack that weighs just 145 pounds with cooling fluids. The Regera can draw on its full 670 electric horsepower from very low speeds for a full 10 seconds, much longer than the draw capability of any competitor. It’s not just the battery’s ability to draw immense power that’s impressive, however. The battery can also accept a massive 200kW of recharge, if necessary, with the system constantly striving for a balance between power and efficiency.
