2022 Hispano Suiza Carmen Boulogne Makes World Debut In Munich

The Hispano Suiza Carmen Boulogne is lighter and faster than anyone expected.

Hispano Suiza was a famous Spanish automaker at the beginning of the twenty century, but it disappeared from the market after it built its last car - the H6B "Xenia" - in 1938. Then, at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, Hispano Suiza finally made a comeback after an absence of more than 70 years.

Its first car was of course the Carmen, with the Boulogne version firstly being announced at the virtual 2020 Geneva Motor Show. Now, with the first actual show really happening - the IAA Mobility 2021 - the Carmen Boulogne is finally making its world debut.

What’s so special about the Hispano Suiza Carmen Boulogne?

The new Carmen Boulogne is lighter than the standard Carmen version. In order for this to happen, Hispano Suiza used revised suspension components, a new sub-chassis, and a carbon roof. The result: the new Boulogne version is about 132 pounds lighter than the Carmen.

It is also the most powerful version of the Carmen.

In the Boulogne, the four electric motors deliver a total of 1,114 horsepower - up from the 1,019 horsepower in the standard Carmen.

As a result the sprint from 0 to 60 mph is now made in 2.6 seconds - down from the previous 3.0 seconds. Top Speed remains unchanged at 180 mph.

The electric motors take their power from a 80-kWh lithium-ion polymer battery pack that ensure a range of 249 miles - a number that will put to shame many of the "famous" electric cars.

Hispano Suiza will build a total of five Carmen Boulogne - next to the previous 14 Carmen models. Prices will start from €1,650,000 (plus taxes) (about $2 million at the current exchange rates).

Hispano Suiza will be present at IAA Mobility 2021, the Munich Motor Show, where the main European manufacturers will showcase their lates models. The brand will be represented by the Mohr Group, official dealer for the German market, which will display the Hispano Suiza Carmen Boulogne, an authentic work of art delivering 1114 hp of power, zero emissions and featuring a design that leaves no one indifferent.

The IAA Mobility 2021 takes place in Munich between September 7 and 12 and marks the return of the great motor shows to Europe after the significant restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Munich-based Mohr Group will have a prominent space in Hall B4 (stand A20) at IAA Mobility 2021, where the Hispano Suiza Carmen Boulogne will be on display. The most powerful version of Carmen, delivering 1,114 hp thanks to its four electric motors, stands out with its unique carbon fibre exterior that combines the brand´s futuristic vision with its heritage. The Carmen Boulogne performance is the result of the motorsport experience of the technical team, most of which comes from Formula E, where they achieved the first drivers’ title in history.

Hispano Suiza has shown that luxury, performance, cutting-edge technology and zero-emission mobility can go hand in hand with Carmen, the model which heralded Hispano Suiza´s return to automotive manufacturing in 2019. Designed and manufactured in Barcelona (Spain), the Interest in Hispano Suiza models goes far beyond the Spanish borders and that is why last February the brand signed an agreement with the renowned Mohr Group for the distribution of its models in Germany.

Sergio Martínez Campos, CEO of Hispano Suiza said: “We are delighted to participate in the IAA Mobility 2021 together with the Mohr Group, our Official Dealer for the German Market. It is a real privilege to be able to showcase our Hispano Suiza Carmen Boulogne to the German public and the international media. Its world debut was scheduled for the 2020 Geneva Motor Show, but COVID-19 made us change our plans. We are looking forward to see the reactions of the show attendees about our most radical hypercar: I think the Boulogne will not leave anyone indifferent ”.

“We are very proud to represent Hispano Suiza in Germany and to be able to have Carmen Boulogne here in Munich, for its official debut in Germany"said Lorenz M. Mohr, MOHR GROUP Managing Director.
