Industry News: Henrik Fisker Gives The Car Maker Business Another Go

Recommended Posts

Henrik Fisker has resurrected his namesake company. Speaking with Bloomberg, Fisker said his new company Fisker Inc. will reveal a "premium, all-electric vehicle in the second half of 2017."

Various about this new vehicle and the underlying electric technologies are currently under lock and key. But Bloomberg was able to glean some information about it. The battery technologies developed by Fisker Nanotech - their battery division - promises over 400 miles of range and feature industry-leading battery life that could "match the life of the vehicle."

“The technology emanates from several professors from UCLA who have been working on energy storage. We have already developed prototypes that you won’t see anywhere else,” said Jack Kavanaugh, chairman of Fisker Nanotech.

Fisker wouldn't say much about the design of the new model except that it would feature some of his own design elements.

“It will definitely be something that when you see it, it will look completely different. It will be sporty and spacious. And you’ve got to make something look beautiful—there is no excuse for making an ugly car, even with new technology—so it will definitely have some of my signature elements.”

The company also plans on launching an affordable model down the road.

I am excited by the new battery tech that gives 400 miles of range. This would be a real deal changer in how people see the EV auto.

Given Teslas shaky financial status, the Bolt and the Fisker are both huge.  I seriously am beginning to doubt we will even see an actual model three built by Tesla-he is hemorrhaging cash at a prodigious rate, and the merger with Solar city does not help matters either.

Thankfully, we have GM and Ford also.  They have both driven a model S, taken it apart, and driven it again.  They have the battery technology to start building an assortment of affordable electric cars any time they want, which should be in the next ten years with multiple models from both of them.

      Henrik Fisker to Debut Emotion in August
      Henrik Fisker first go at EV's ended up bankrupt and sold to a Chinese company and yet this has not stopped this man from bringing a much more delightful car to the upper wealthy folks in the form of the all new EMotion AWD EV 4 door sedan.
      Henrik Fisker originally started out from his own .org web site with drawings and info on how he would make a better EV. You can read the story and get plenty of facts at his initial web site here: http://henrikfisker.org/
      Hi Timeline and the auto's that have inspired him is worth looking at. You truly get where he pulled in design language from in the auto's he has driven. Products section shows you just how wide a design effect he has by seeing his cloths, sketchbook, boats, bikes, watches and furniture. They have all played a role in the design of the Emotion.
      Fisker has not only played in the EV market as in 2016 he brought to market the bloody fast high performance V10 powered Force 1 V10 car. A street legal race car designed with race car driver Ben Keating.

      Fisker is now fully focused on his biggest love the extremely quick EV AWD sedan. Fisker according to various news outlets that cover EV news is supposed to release more details on the EMotion in August this month. Here is what we do know about the lovely EMotion:
      800 Volt Electrical System 125 miles of range per 9 minutes of charging 145 kWh battery pack - 400+ miles on a charge built by LG Chem Korea LIDAR full autonomy Fully connected data network All Wheel Drive Solar Panel Roof - allowing recharging, but mostly for running accessories when parked such as AC Gullwing inspired access for front and rear doors Hybrid Shop nationwide network - Press Release Priced from $129,900 not including options - Reservations being taken now, $2,000.

      “HELPING SAVE THE PLANET CAN BE BOTH EXCITING AND BEAUTIFUL”

      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.
