Following its unveiling at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, the Regera entered production the same month in March 2016. It's sold by Koenigsegg as the luxurious megacar alternative to their race-like road cars, especially since it is the first car to be produced by the company alongside another at the same time; the Agera RS.
The rear wheels of the Regera are powered by a combination of a 5.0L twin-turbocharged V8 producing 1,800 bhp, a 215 bhp electric motor-generator on the crankshaft, and two rear wheel-shaft mounted electric motors, each producing 241 bhp. All of which is managed by a single gear transmission developed by Koenisegg, and referred to as the Koenigsegg Direct Drive (KDD).
