This is more than just a mere rumor as the announcement was made by the company’s CEO himself, Christian von Koenigsegg, in an interview with Car Throttle. He said that it will be possible to trickle down the technology used in the company’s current models to launch lesser cars with a more affordable price tag.

However, don’t expect prices similar to a Volkswagen Jetta for example as we expect these new models to still be on the expensive side, but at least more people will have accesses to a car developed by Koenigsegg. If they do decide to launch lesser models, Christian von Koenigsegg says the cars will likely be a part of a new sub-brand because he wants to use the “Koenigsegg” badge only on the company’s high-end supercars like the recently unveiled Regera which debuted back in March at the Geneva Motor Show.

He also specified the company is analyzing the prospects of teaming up with other automakers, but further details are not available at this point so we don’t know whether he refers to implementing Koenigsegg’s technology in models sold under a different brand or he wants to collaborate with another car company to help build the models under the aforementioned sub-brand.

On a relate note, Christian von Koenigsegg also said that he is not a big fan of hybrids, but admits this is the future. However, he went on to specify the combustion engine has a lot more to show as it can still be further developed and combined with beefier electric motors and lighter battery packs, these ingredients should provide the perfect recipe for hardcore models as seen with the One:1.

Regarding future Koenisgegg-branded, a while back we heard Koenigsegg was planning to add a four-door model to its lineup within the next five years. They have denied the possibility of launching a smaller car to go head to head with important models such as the Porsche 911 or the McLaren 650S Coupe.
