During their press conference at the Geneva Motor Show (March 5-15), Koenigsegg unveiled the new Koenigsegg Quant Concept, a four-seater solar electric car, in co-operation with NLV Solar AG. The project was born when NLV Solar AG commissioned the environmentally aware Swedish supercar manufacturer Koenigsegg to develop and design a car of the future, incorporating NLV Solars groundbreaking, proprietary technology in the felds of photovoltaics and accumulators. In 2008, the two companies signed a co-operation agreement to create a test vehicle for a unique propulsion system which makes optimum use of the solar technologies developed by NLV Solar AG, allied with an innovative accumulator unit. The groundbreaking thin-flm solar-cell coating is being implemented in one of Koenigseggs signature avant-garde designs.
