Koenigsegg Unveils the 1,500+ Horsepower Regera Hybrid Hypercar

Swedish hypercar manufacturer Koenigsegg unveils another addition to its range of high-performance cars at the Geneva Motor Show. Unlike its other models, the Regera is the company’s first hybrid hypercar which features the same 5.0-litre twin-turbo V8 as the Agera but with smaller turbos that generate 1,100 hp, while an additional set of three electric motors sourced from YASA Motors pump out another 700 hp. According to Koenigsegg the combined efforts of the plug-in hybrid powertrain makes it the, “fastest accelerating, most powerful production car ever.” Though the price and complete performance figures have yet to be announced, we know that the Regera boasts over 1500 hp and will hit the 400 km/h mark in under 20 seconds, while the acceleration from 150-250 km/h takes a mere 3.2 seconds. Furthermore, only 80 of them will be produced so you might never see one unless your purchase one for yourself.

New Audi Q7 E-Tron plug-in hybrid TDI - 2015 Geneva Motor Show If you can’t make up your mind between plug-in hybrids and diesel-powered cars, perhaps Audi can help with their new Q7 E-Tron. It’s the Ingolstadt-based firm’s first ever plug-in hybrid TDI model and it’s based on the second-generation Q7 luxury SUV. It combines a frugal 3.0-liter V6 common rail diesel delivering 254hp (258PS) and 442lb ft of torque with a disc-shaped electric motor that provides 94 kW (126hp) and 350 Nm (258.1 lb-ft) of torque integrated into the eight-speed tiptronic transmission. Total system output stands at 373PS (368hp) and 700Nm (516lb-ft), which allows the Q7 E-Tronic to reach 100km/h (62mph) 6.0 seconds and top out at 225km/h (140mph). So it’s fairly fast, but what about its fuel economy? That’s where this model shines returning an amazing 1.7 l/100 km (equal to 138.4 mpg US) in the NEDC cycle, with CO2 emissions of less than 50g/km (80.5 g/mile). However, to achieve this figure, you’ll have to use the 56 km or 35 mile range of pure electric power. Charging times for the lithium-ion battery depends on the infrastructure, with Audi stating that it could take as little as two-and-a-half hours. Source: http://ift.tt/1DG3XL1

While the market for green cars in general in the US he fell in 2014 with a 6.5 percent drop in sales, demand for electric vehicles and plug-ins actually jumped a healthy 28 percent. The Ford Fusion Energi plug-in was one of the winners in the segment with a rise of nearly 90 percent to 11,550 examples sold in the year.

To keep the ball rolling in the face of low gas prices and updated challengers entering the field, the Blue Oval is cutting $ 900 to the cost of both the Energi and Fusion Standard Hybrid to make them even more attractive to buyers . Monique Ford Brentley toldAutoblog that the reduction was “basically just to attract more customers and sales promotion.”

The Ford Fusion Hybrid is a hybrid powered version of gasoline and electricity half the size of Ford Fusion sedan developed by the Ford Motor Company, and US launched in March 2009 as a 2010 model year along with his twin hybrid Mercury Milan. The second generation Ford Fusion Hybrid, launched as a 2013 model year, went on sale in the US in October 2012. A plug-in hybrid Ford Fusion Energi version was released in the US in February 2013.

Cut each setting affects both versions equipped with electric motor of the merger for the 2016 model year, direct hire, and comes without removing standard equipment. By contrast, the Energi reportedly receive a new driving mode that activates EcoSelect additional regenerative braking and smoother acceleration. The price adjustment of $ 900 is only for these models and not available in versions with just an internal combustion engine which makes clear Ford wants to tempt buyers of green cars to this pair.

According direct Cars, models must go on sale in late 2015. The cheapest 2016 Fusion Hybrid S will cost $ 25.675 plus $ 825 destination in all of them, and about 2,016 Energi start at $ 33.900. Own pages Autoblog price for them show the same numbers (here and here). Direct Cars also predicts for the Blue Oval to keep most of the incentives in place even after adjustment.

Assuming that these figures do not change before actually sedans go on sale, price cut does a 2016 Energi less expensive than a 2015 Chevrolet Volt from $ 34,345 (plus $ 825 destination). The cost of the upgrade for the 2016 model Chevy is not yet announced.
