We already know that Swedish supercar manufacturer Koenigsegg has obtained the controlling interest in Saab. It won’t be long before Koenigsegg will start accessing Saab’s production facilities to produce their cars. According to Swedish website Realtid.se, Koenigsegg will use Saab’s production facilities to build a production model of the Quant EV concept car that made its debut at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show.
Realtid.se, citing unnamed sources, that said Koenigsegg hopes to use the government aid to produce the zero-emissions Quant in very low volumes in a couple of years.
Produced in partnership with NLV Solar AG, the rear-wheel-drive Quant features an advanced electric-power generation and storage system which will allow the car to recharge in 20 minutes while providing a range of 311 miles. Additional power is provided from solar panels that cover the body of the car.
The Koenigsegg Quant will produce 512-hp and a peak torque of 527 lb-ft. That should help it go from 0 to 62 mph in 5.2 seconds with a top speed of 171 mph.
