What is causing the Koenigsegg Gemera to lose its side cameras?March 11, 2020
The new Swedish supercar Koenigsegg Gemera may well go on sale without rear-view cameras that replace conventional side mirrors. The blame for the legislation of some countries.
US federal vehicle regulations can ruin the design of the new Koenigsegg Gemera, just as these rules have spoiled the innovative look of other models over the years. U.S. law requires a rearview mirror on the driver’s side outside the car. Gemera does not have such mirrors. Instead, Koenigsegg uses cameras. In a recent interview with foreign publications, Mr. Koenigsegg said that he will have to take this step and he will do what is necessary for the car to comply with US regulations.
Still, Koenigsegg hopes the U.S. will change its rules to allow the use of side rear cameras before the Gemera arrives in 2022.
Despite optimism, it is unlikely that the government can change the law. If the rule remains, then expect to see a stylish Gemera with conventional side mirrors.
Nevertheless, the head of Koenigsegg says that Gemera can arrive in the United States both with a rear-view camera system, the image of which will be projected onto the internal screens installed on the front desk, and with traditional mirrors. Thus, if the rules change, then the owners of Gemera will be able to remove the mirrors and use only rear-view cameras.
It is sad to see that technology, which is constantly improving the car, is inhibited by slowly changing rules. And Koenigsegg Gemera is a real monster of the future: four seats, two doors, a three-cylinder engine with a capacity of 600 horsepower, and three electric motors – in general, the hybrid power plant produces 1700 hp. power and 3500 Nm of torque.
