The HK GT Concept will only be officially unveiled at the Geneva motor show, but two images were released ahead of the debut. The two-door Coupé is the fourth concept electric car to come out of the joint venture between Pininfarina and HKG.

The concept car features a micro-turbine generator to extend its range and has been teased with two images ahead of the motor show.

After the previous successes of the H600 limousine, and  the SUVs K550 and K750, the HK GT will feature some of the same proven technology, but in a far more racy design. It’s based on a reinterpretation of a classic GT concept, using the Italian design style, which HKG is hoping will further refine their identity and open the door to large scale production.

Thanks to the electric generator, the range of the vehicle is said to be around 1,000 km. However, while the H600 is planned to be released on the Chinese and U.S. markets in 2019 or 2020, plans have not included the revelation of when the HK GT will be available.

The cars will be constructed in China, after the initial bid by HKG to build a production facility in Alabama was shut down in 2011. Pininfarina, which is controlled by Indian firm Mahindra, stated last year that the cooperation was worth around 65 million euros.
