If you haven’t heard of Henrik Fisker, then it’s time to take note—he could very well change the electric car game with the Fisker EMotion.
According to Fisker Inc., the EMotion is designed to achieve an all-electric 644 km (400 mi) range, beating the Tesla Model S by 137 km (85 mi). This will be made possible through their graphene-based hybrid supercapacitor technology, currently being developed by Fisker’s battery division. The sleek sedan will have a top speed of 259 kp/h (161 mph), with a body structure composed of carbon fiber and aluminum.
Newly-released renderings give us our first look at the vehicle, which the manufacturer claims will be even cheaper than the Tesla Model 3 or the Chevy Bolt. In terms of self-driving capability, Fisker also adds that the EMotion will carry fully autonomous driving features. According to the press release:
“The EMotion will be equipped with hardware that will allow fully autonomous driving when approved and released by a soon-to-be-announced partnered supplier. The interior will emphasize ultimate comfort and user interface from both front and rear seats, and all seats will have access to screens and infotainment features."
With its official debut slated for next year, the EMotion is primed to become a consumer-friendly electric car that’s set to rival Tesla's offerings, given its specs and price point.
