The Fisker Karma was one of my favorite electric vehicles, even though it was technically a series hybrid ala the less sporty, Chevy Volt. It had pretty great street performance with an extended range for long trips. It also featured a solar roof, albeit it only generated enough electricity to run the accessories and AC really. Unfortunately, 2 battery recalls later and some negative press led the old Fisker to bankruptcy. Now, Fisker Inc. is revamped with California talent and new investors and their ready to reveal their 2019 all-electric sports car.
Fisker Inc. June Press Release:
Fisker Inc. recently released the design specifications and teaser photos of its 2019 production vehicle, the Fisker EMotion. The EMotion delivers an astounding over 400-mile electric range and a top speed of 161 mph.
The new EMotion is a clean sheet design from the inside out, utilizing a carbon fiber and aluminum structure to redefine the proportions of an electric vehicle. The vehicle’s design gives greater consideration than ever before to its passengers’ safety, comfort, and convenience. Fisker’s patented frontal crash structure exceeds
current standards to protect all occupants. The cabin features a luxurious, spacious interior with superior rear legroom. Large ultra-light carbon fiber and aluminum wheels, developed in conjunction with Dymag, reduce rotational mass by 40%, further improving electric range. The Fisker EMotion has been proportioned to accommodate an advanced high energy density, patent-pending battery pack and cooling system. It can be charged through the vehicle’s proprietary UltraCharger™ technology, charging over 100
miles in nine minutes. The EMotion seamlessly combines technology into the design of the vehicle. The front end’s bright aluminum centerpiece houses a LIDAR system behind a tinted screen. Side mirrors conceal two cameras, which enable panoramic, 360-degree
views to the driver.
The world of racing inspired some of the EMotion’s more daring elements. Extreme aerodynamics include frontal, side, and rear carbon aero elements, as well as a low hood line surrounded by sculptural front fenders and a tapered green house with large sculptural rear fenders. The side DLO (Daylight Opening) is finished with a signature EMotion double-polished aluminum window molding. The rear end has a dramatic section with thin taillights, and an integrated lower carbon diffuser. The vehicle will be sold directly through Fisker Inc.’s website and forthcoming experience centers. The EMotion will be serviced through The Hybrid Shop (THS), a joint venture between Fisker Inc. and THS. Fisker Service will provide its customers with a one-of-a-kind, white glove concierge service, providing Fisker owners a seamless day “free of interruption” for routine maintenance and servicing. The company will be revealing additional information throughout June 2017. Preorders for the vehicle will officially begin June 30th at www.fiskerinc.com.
