All-electric luxury sedan gives Tesla a run for its money
02 November 2016
Henrik Fisker, through his newly launched Fisker Inc., announced the design and specifications surrounding the launch of his electric vehicle, the Fisker EMotion.
The Fisker EMotion highlights new styles and proportions for the luxury sport sedan category with a sculptural body and greenhouse emphasising aerodynamics. The vehicle will include a large curved front windscreen pushed forward, diving into an extremely low bonnet. The rear features an integrated spoiler and aggressive functional diffusor to aid aerodynamics, which will help achieve a 161mph top speed and a 400 electric range.
Fisker has taken advantage of the newly developed electric power train layout by pushing the vehicle’s entire interior compartment forward and increasing the wheelbase with distinctively short front and rear overhangs, a layout that increases the interior space. The interior will have more space than its closest competitors and more rear legroom than many full-size luxury sedans, despite its sporty silhouette.
The Fisker EMotion will feature a composite, carbon fibre and aluminium structure with an innovative battery integration. The EMotion will use a new battery technology using graphene, with battery packs produced by Fisker Nanotech, a joint venture between Fisker Inc. and Nanotech Energy Inc.
The EMotion will be equipped with hardware that will allow fully autonomous driving when approved and released by a soon-to-be-announced partnered supplier. The interior will emphasise ultimate comfort and user interface from both front and rear seats, and all seats will have access to screens and infotainment features.
The Fisker EMotion is scheduled to be produced in an existing facility in the USA. The first deliveries will be announced after the vehicle is shown in mid 2017.
