PostHeaderIcon Bugatti’s Next New Model Could Be an All-Electric Daily Driver

Hot on the heels of unveiling the world’s most expensive new car, Bugatti is already looking towards its next project, and it might not be what most people expect. A new hypercar is seen as the default answer to any queries about a new Bugatti, but this proposed model doesn’t fall under that classification. Instead of a hypercar, Bugatti is looking to introduce a second and far more affordable model to its lineup, one that is characterized as a best-in-segment daily driver. More importantly, it’s an electric vehicle. There’s still no timetable for this proposed model, in large part because Bugatti’s big wigs have yet to make a decision on the car. If it does get the green light, don’t expect this Bugatti to feature Chiron-level power. It’s still going to be fast and powerful, but it will also put premium importance on luxury and comfort. Could this be the time that we finally see Bugatti dust off the Galibier name and bring it to life?

PostHeaderIcon Bugatti Galibier

The Bugatti 16C Galibier came to life in 2009 as a concept car. Developed as a successor of the EB 218 from 1999, which followed the EB 112 of 1993, the Galibier’s design was based on the Veyron supercar, while the engine was a significantly modified version of the 8.0-liter W-16. Originally slated for production as a modern Royale, the Galibier was eventually cancelled in 2013. Although there’s no official reason for that, it’s believed that the French firm wanted to focus on a Veyron successor, which was launched in 2016 as the Chiron. Word has it that the Galibier project is now back on Bugatti’s table, so we created a brand-new rendering to go with a speculative review.

If you’ve been following the media on the Galibier matter, the project has gone up and down numerous times. Each report that it was considered for production was followed by another one that Bugatti won’t do it weeks or months later. There still isn’t an official statement, so it’s pretty much a mystery. But it’s safe to assume that Bugatti will do it at some point, mainly because it will sell like hotcakes no matter the sticker. Declining the opportunity to make a profit with an ultra-fast and ultra-luxurious sedan would be pure madness. And, Bugatti may be mad, but in a different way. So yeah, I think that the Galibier will arrive in a few years – maybe even sooner than 2020.

PostHeaderIcon Bugatti Planning Second Model To Go With The Chiron

Long thought to be a one-model brand, Bugatti is now considering the feasibility of building a second model to sit alongside the Chiron supercar with one of the models being the Galibier luxury sedan.

Speaking with Drive, Bugatti CEO Wolfgang Durheimer commented on Bugatti’s future plans, the most significant of which is a strategy that will make the French brand more financially independent from parent company Volkswagen AG in the wake of the diesel emissions scandal that has plagued the German auto conglomerate. One possible way for Bugatti to secure this financial and operations independency is to add another model to its lineup.

Durheimer confirmed that the Galibier is one of four models the company is considering. As for the other three, the Bugatti CEO said he still couldn’t talk about any of them, but the report indicates that another option is a luxury SUV that would compete against the Rolls-Royce Callinan. There’s also talk of an all-electric luxury car and the most intriguing of them all, an “entry-level” supercar that would sit below the Chiron.

Despite the rumors surrounding these potential models, Durheimer seems to have a soft spot for the Galibier because it has, in his own words, “some revolutionary approaches that no one to date has yet dared to place into production.” What those approaches are is anybody’s guess, but it is worth noting that Durheimer has been championing for the Galibier dating back to his first stint as Bugatti’s top boss. Now that he’s back in the company after spending some time running Audi, the possibility of (finally!) seeing the Galibier in the flesh is as big as it’s ever been. All that’s left is to see where this road Bugatti is leading us in ends up.

PostHeaderIcon Bugatti Now Considering Building The Galibier

Every automaker has its unicorn; the car that is always rumored to get built but for one reason or another never seems to happen. For Bugatti, that car is the Galibier, the super luxurious and super powerful 1,000-horsepower sedan that the French automaker unveiled in 2009. Over the following seven years, decision-makers at Bugatti have waffled over the production of the Galibier about as often as a Spider-Man movie reboot. It’s going to be built one day and going to be shelved the next. However, it appears that Bugatti is finally considering the Galibier as a production model again, albeit with a catch. It’s one of four different alternatives that the company is looking at to replace the yet-to-arrive Bugatti Chiron.

Word from Car and Driver has it that Bugatti CEO Wolfgang Dürheimer is weighing the possibility of bringing the Galibier to the market. It’s a long-overdue development for the 2009 concept, which was initially billed as one of front-runners to eventually replace the Bugatti Veyron. We all know that didn’t happen since the Chiron has taken that mantle, but it appears that not all hope is lost with regards to the possibility of the Galibier transitioning into production form.

But don’t get excited just yet. Dürheimer says it’s just one of four alternatives, which means that there are three more that the company is considering. No details have been revealed on what these three “alternatives” are, but knowing how Bugatti operates, it’s going to be absurdly fast and powerful beyond compare. Could it be a more track-focused version of both the Veyron or the Chiron? Maybe it’s an all-powerful hybrid, something a lot of people initially thought the Chiron would come in.

It’s still too early to tell at this point. Even if Bugatti does choose the route of the Galibier, don’t expect to see it for a long time, or at least until the Chiron’s production run ends. Remember, the Bugatti Veyron and all it’s forms and variants lasted 10 years in the market. If the Chiron has a similar lifespan, the successor wouldn’t arrive until 2026.
