Fisker Inc.’s new car will be called EMotion.
After releasing several teaser images, Fisker Inc. has shown off the new EMotion that is claiming to be the first all-electric luxury sedan to boast a 400-mile (640 kilometers) range. Sporting new styles and proportions for the luxury sedan segment, the EMotion features a sculptural body and “greenhouse emphasizing aerodynamics,” said the American automaker. Up front is a large, curved windshield similar to what’s seen on the Tesla Model X, while the rear boasts an integrated spoiler and aggressive functional diffuser to support aerodynamics. Along with claiming a 400-mile range, the EMotion will have a top speed of 161 mph (260 km/h).
The company says it has taken advantage of a newly-developed powertrain layout that results in pushing the vehicle’s entire interior compartment forward, increasing the wheelbase with distinctively short front and rear overhangs. The result is increased interior space and more legroom than many full-size luxury sedans. The electric vehicle take advantage of a composite, carbon fiber and aluminum structure and innovative battery technology that uses graphene. As expected, the battery packs will be produced by Fisker Nanotech, a joint venture between Fisker Inc. and Nanotech Energy Inc.
And like new Tesla vehicles, the Fisker EMotion will be fully autonomous when approved.
The company says it is scheduled to produce the EMotion in an existing facility in the U.S. and first deliveries will be announced once the vehicle debuts in mid-2017.
