Recharged Fisker reveals the EMotion

Henrik Fisker's first foray with the Fisker Karma drained very quickly. 45 Fisker Automotive dealerships delivered over 2,000 Karma hybrids but had battery problems, Hurricane Sandy destroyed 338 Karmas destined for Europe and his departure caused FA to file Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The Wanxiang Group bought the assets and turned it into Karma Automotive. Launched Karma Revero plug-in hybrids.
Fisker reboots with Fisker Inc's EMotion, a new All-American sourced and built all-electric luxury sports sedan. His new company, Fisker Inc. will produce the car with a top speed of 161 mph and have a 400 mile battery range. The composite frame will be constructed of carbon fiber and aluminum, the graphene-based batteries will be made by an joint venture, Fisker-Nanotech Energy Inc.

The rendering of the side of the car is new to me:



Those wheels are not low drag.

I like how it looks, but those are certainly some big wheels and some low-profile tyres. Still, I think I'll wait to see if anything changes - right now we seem to have a lot of PEV 'in the works' (Faraday and Fisker Inc to name a few) with little to show besides concepts.

That said, a 400 mile battery range would be nice!

Somewhere I read that the Fisker will be built overseas (Norway I think). That news was yesterday but that article is not on my computer history.

And it looks like it'll be out of reach for 99% of us.

Looks a lot like an RX8 to me
It would probably blow the RX8 away though (if you could afford one)

I could probably hang with it for about a tenth of a second in the Volt
