Barcelona-based luxury automaker Hispano Suiza is gearing up to celebrate its 120th anniversary with the debut of the Sagrera. Named after the ‘La Sagrera' district in Barcelona, where the company established a factory in the early 1910s, the Sagrera is positioned as an “evolution” of the Carmen model. Notably, the company emphasizes that the Sagrera will complement, rather than replace, the existing Carmen and Carmen Boulogne models in their lineup.
The upcoming model is confirmed to feature a 103 kWh battery pack, aligning with the industry trend towards electric powertrains. Hispano Suiza has hinted at a significant advancement in aerodynamics for the Sagrera, emphasizing that the model is designed to elevate performance, sportiness, and a passion for luxury.
Sergio Martínez Campos, CEO of Hispano Suiza, has stated that the Sagrera lays the groundwork for the brand's future design direction. While specific details remain under wraps, Martínez Campos notes that the Sagrera is a response to customer requests for a vehicle of this nature, aiming to uphold the brand's commitment to uniqueness.
As a historical note, Hispano Suiza, established at the turn of the century, produced over 12,000 vehicles between 1904 and 1946. The brand experienced a revival in 2019 with the introduction of the Carmen, followed by the Carmen Boulogne in the subsequent year. The forthcoming Sagrera marks another milestone for the iconic automaker as it continues to evolve in the luxury electric vehicle segment.
