Koenigsegg Working on Hybrid Vehicle

Swedish automaker Koenigsegg is working on a new hybrid supercar. Actually, we’re not entirely sure it will be a supercar, because Christian Von Koenigsegg won’t even reveal what market segment the vehicle will occupy.

That’s right: this upcoming Koenigsegg is ultra-secret. While we don’t know many things about it, what is known will blow you away.

First, the new model will retail for $1.1 million. For that, you get a gasoline-electric hybrid that will be nearly CO2 neutral. That means having your fun and feeling a little better about not contributing to pollution in your city.

To boot, the gasoline engine will use Koenigsegg’s exclusive Freevalve technology, which is a big reason why the upcoming vehicle will produce so few emissions.
