koenigsegg_quant_01

Showcasing an industry starved of credit and customers, this year’s Auto Salon in Geneva will be centered on the environment. With that, Koenigsegg is one of those players that is trying to build the “car of the future” with an emphasis on both power and energy. Dubbed the Koenigsegg Quant, you’re looking at a a four-seat solar electric car that is covered with a thin-flm solar-cell coating (high-efficiency Pyradian cells) developed by the Swiss from NLV Solar. Capable of charging to full capacity in only 15 to 20 minutes and with a range of 310 miles, Quant manages to blend the luxury and comfort of a sedan with supercar looks. We’d love to see that aluminum/carbon body making it to the production lines, and even take it for a test drive on a sunny day. Check out the specs after the break. [via autoblog.nl]
