All-Electric Pininfarina HK GT Concept is a Gullwinged Grand Tourer

Coupe concept bows in Geneva

Blue glowing lights. Gullwing doors. Giant touchscreen. Check, check, and check. The electrified Pininfarina Hybrid Kinetic (HK) GT revealed at this year's Geneva Motor Show is the futuristic grand touring followup to last year's H600 hybrid sedan concept.

Pininfarina's elegant HK GT is its fourth joint venture with the Hong Kong-based Hybrid Kinetic Group. The concept takes cues from H600 luxury sedan as well as the K550 and K750 SUVs that were revealed at the 2017 Shanghai Motor Show.

The Pininfarina HK GT sports a long illuminated grille that stretches from high-tech headlights to headlights across the front of the car.

The sculpted rear sports more traditional lights, a sleek spoiler lip, and a squared back window.

The concept has an aluminum frame for its 2+2 configuration with wide, gullwing doors, and enough glowing interior to host a dance party for four. Inside, there's a floating dash and creamy white seats with orange stitching up front and contrasting gray ones in the back.

"The HK GT is a car with a dual personality—race and Gran Turismo—and it is precisely to underline this double soul of the car that the interior offers two different modes of experience: "race", for moments of solitary and hedonistic sports driving, and "cruise" for great routes to be shared with the family," states Pininfarina's press release.

Race mode gets red interior lighting and cruise mode gets a blast of blue. Power for the HK GT comes from four electric motors with a combined power output of 1,073 hp (800 kW). It has a two-speed transmission and a claimed 0-62 mph time of 2.7 seconds with a top speed of 217 mph.

It has a limited all-electric driving range that's less than 100 miles, but it can be increased to over 600 miles combined with the use of three different range extender options—a micro turbine generator, hydrogen fuel cell system, or a trusty, internal combustion engine.

Don't expect to see it anytime soon, if at all—the concept was designed with Asian markets in mind.
