Hmm, what do the two automakers have up their sleeves?


On Tuesday, two Swedish carmakers delivered a vague, yet possibly exciting announcement. The two automakers would be Polestar and Koenigsegg, and each took to social media to tease "something exciting."

All that came with the announcement were two photos. Koenigsegg's official Instagram account showed the front ends of the Gemera and the Polestar Precept concept. Meanwhile, Polestar's official account posted a photo of both cars' rumps. The latter's post also said "something interesting" is brewing on the west coast of Sweden, where both automakers are based.

While we originally speculated this announcement could relate to a number of things, both Koenigsegg and Polestar confirmed with Roadshow this is merely for a "video initiative" that will focus on the Precept concept and the Gemera. Both cars were meant to have big, splashy debuts at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show, but the coronavirus pandemic caused the show to be scrapped.

We'll see the video content debut later this month, according to both companies.
