The ongoing Fisker saga takes another step forward with the release of a set of teaser images of the production-spec 2019 Fisker EMotion, which shows the new design adheres closely to the unnamed concept that was teased last year.
Despite apparent similarities to Fisker’s last attempted EV, the Fisker Karma - back then from Fisker Automotive, not the new Fisker Inc. company, and set to return as the Karma Revero under Chinese ownership - the EMotion is described as a “clean sheet design” although it appears that clean sheet may have had some indentations from the Karma’s design left in it.
Fisker also describes the EMotion’s 400 mile (640+km) range and 161 MPH (259 km/h) top speed helped by the EMotion’s carbon fibre and aluminium construction, with proprietary UltraCharger technology that can add up to 160 kilometres of range in as little as nine minutes.
From the teaser shots, the EMotion proudly shows off a three-port polished aluminium nose that hides a LIDAR system behind a tinted screen. Either side of that a pair of minimalist LED light units give the EMotion a unique face.
At the rear a double-polished aluminium belt moulding frames the bottom of the low glasshouse, while the tail features a slim band of LED lights.
Fisker claims the EMotion exceeds current crash protection standard via a patented front crash structure, will provide “superior” rear legroom, and will come with “white glove” concierge assistance providing interruption-free maintenance and servicing.
Pre-orders are currently open, but Fisker is yet to set a launch date for the EMotion.
