Henrik Fisker, an automotive designer, is a well-known legend in his field. So, when he announced something that he was working on, there was plenty of interest. This new design is said to be an all-new electric vehicle that would both take on Tesla’s Model S and will serve as the spiritual successor to the Fisker's Karma.
For the record, Fisker first teased the new electric car in late 2016. However, today, a new information was leaked and we have our first real look at the upcoming vehicle and it sure is fancy.
According to Digital Trends, the new Fisker car will be called as the EMotion and it would have a 400-mile range, 161-mph top speed. Its full capability will cost $129,000, and as claimed by Fisker itself, the given price for the all-new electric car will include the “ultra large battery pack.” This indicates that just like Tesla, as well as Lucid Motors, Fisker EMotion will offer multiple battery-pack sizes.
Fisker EMotion will be the first-ever vehicle under the newly formed Fisker Inc. and is one of the two planned electric cars from the company. As reported by BGR, the second unnamed vehicle is being designed and produced for mass market appeal rather than the luxury division like the EMotion.
The new electric vehicle is definitely a sleek, beautiful car especially based on its design. However, what should really get EMotion really buffs excited is the built-in technology that is packed into the vehicle itself. Fisker announces that the vehicle is designed to beat the sub-350-mile range of the Tesla Model S handily.
Aside from that, the fast-charging feature of the Fisker EMOtion will allow the car to juice up in just nine minutes. A concern that Tesla should really think about because that’s incredibly fast compared to what they are offering. On the other hand, Fisker says the electric vehicle relies on patent-pending battery technology invented by researchers at University of California, Los Angeles or UCLA.
