    Meet the Fisker EMotion


    • Fisker is already making bold claims on a vehicle that isn't coming out till mid-2017

    Fisker is beginning to drop information on their new vehicle called EMotion along with some clear images of the model.

    The design is.. well... out there. The side profile looks be a Karma that has been squished. There are tall wheel wells and deep cuts in the doors. The front end is something - we're going with the policy if you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything. The vehicle is built out of aluminum and carbon fiber.

    Fisker is already making some claims about the EMotion such as the vehicle having "superb rear legroom."

    "Fisker has taken advantage of the newly developed electric powertrain 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 company said in a statement.

    Also, the EMotion will have a range of 400 miles and reach a top speed of 161 mph. The company says this range is due to graphene battery technology developed by Fisker Nanotech and Nanotech Energy Inc. Details about this new battery tech are slim. One more thing, the EMotion will feature autonomous driving technologies.

    Fisker will fully unveil the EMotion in mid-2017.

    Intersting, funny that they talk about the new battery tech which was released onto the world in 2012.

    http://nanotechweb.org/cws/article/tech/48881

    Hong Kong is where this idea comes from and clearly it needed time and testing, so maybe they are finally making it work.

    In 2013 other scientist found that this had great potential for super capacitors, but more research was needed.

    In 2014 Tesla was working on what they hoped would be a 500 mile battery pack based on this tech, but still nothing yet.

    Companies seem to see a long term use for batteries based on this tech, seems it would allow much smaller, denser and long range power supply.

    Over all, I could see graphene batteries finally making the EV a long range no fear auto with super fast charging as the batteries unlike regular or NiCad or Li can take super fast rapid charging with no problem.

    Gonna have to watch this and see what comes of it.

    Further cool info:

    USES FOR GRAPHENE 

     

    Green technology: Sir Andre and PhD student Lozada-Hidalgo hope that graphene could one day be used in proton-conducting membranes, which are a crucial component of fuel cells, used to power 'green' cars.

    They found that graphene membranes could be used to extract hydrogen from the atmosphere, suggesting the possibility of combining them with fuel cells to make mobile electric generators powered just by tiny amounts of hydrogen in the air.

    Medicine: Experts say that graphene could be used as a vehicle for delivering drugs to specific sites in the body, which could one day mean new treatments for people with brain conditions, for example.

    Transport: Graphene’s strength and lightness makes it an ideal material to incorporate into cars and aeroplanes in a bid to make them safer and more fuel efficient.

    Thin coatings: The thin and strong material could also be used to make corrosion-proof coatings, packaging and even super-thin condoms

    Electronics: The material conducts electricity efficiently so it could be used to make new types of smartphones and as well as flexible wearable technology.

    Purifying water: Scientists are working on using the material as a membrane to separate liquids, so it could one day be used to purify water in areas of the world that do not have access to the essential liquid.

    Samsung seems to think by 2019 they can use Graphene to double if not triple their battery density for super long life on electronic appliances like smartphones.
