Here’s How Koenigsegg’s Tiny New 3 Cylinder Engine Can Generate 600HP


The Koenigsegg Gemera is an incredibly complex vehicle. At the rear wheels are two electric motors, each rated for 500 horsepower and 1000 newton meters of torque, and they each have a single-speed gearbox before sending power to the rear wheels independently. Sandwiched between the motors is the Tiny Friendly Giant or TFG, a 3-cylinder longitudinally placed engine. It’s good for 600 horsepower and 600 newton meters of torque, and mounted to the end of its crankshaft is another electric motor, good for an additional 400 horsepower and 500 Nm of torque.

Here’s how Koenigsegg manages to generate so much power from a small 3 cylinder engine:
