The Koenigsegg Quant Concept was developed by Swedish brand Koenigsegg and NLV Solar AG, a leading company in photovoltaics and accumulator technology. The eco-friendly supercar is an example of the car of the future combining power and energy. The solar electric car uses the best in the fields of photovoltaics and accumulators, and the ultimate Koenigsegg technologies and design techniques.
Koenigsegg Quant Powertrain
The NLV`s innovative accumulator unit is combined with a thin-flm solar-cell coating. The electric power generation and storage, combined with the aerodynamic engineering, guarantee that the Quant is able to charge to full capacity in 20 minutes. The range before next charging is around 500 kilometres. The invisible, thin-flm photovoltaic coating that covers the body of the car, adds extra power and the range potential to the vehicle.
Battery-powered Koenigsegg Quant boasts an impressive 512 hp and maximum torque of 715. The drivetrain allows the concept to accelerate from 0 to100 km/h in 5.2 seconds and reach a maximum speed of 275 km/h.
The Koenigsegg Quant Concept features an ultra low weight due to the extensive use of a carbon-fibre. The vehicle features a monotube backbone chassis and an aluminium/carbon body, which house the drivetrain system weighing only 450 kg.
The high-end Koenigsegg styling gives the car a luxurious look. The concept features functional design, comfort and loading capacity. The four-seater has a gull-wing doors. They provide easy access to the car, due to the lack of B-pillars.
