    Fisker EMotion delayed until solid-state batteries ready for prime time

    It was in 2017 that revived electric car startup Fisker announced plans for the EMotion, stating at the time that the svelte sedan would enter production in 2019 and feature next-generation batteries developed in-house. Fisker has since pushed back the launch of the EMotion until sometime after...

    Fisker is eager to show off its EMotion all-electric sedan. The company is so eager, in fact, that it posted a short drive video to YouTube on May 30 showing the car running under its own power. The video was obviously not professionally produced. It appears it was shot with a phone in the vertical...

  • Fisker EMotion

    The rebooted Fisker unveiled its highly anticipated EMotion electric car on Tuesday at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show. The car is a mid-size sport sedan with all-wheel drive and ample space for four, and it also comes with gullwing doors that you typically find on supercars. Unlike Fisker’s previous attempt at an electric car, the ill-fated Karma, the EMotion doesn’t rely on a range-extender to deliver its claimed 400 miles on a single charge. The range is made possible by a lithium-ion battery sourced from leading battery supplier LG Chem, and puts Fisker at the forefront of...

  • Teaser for Fisker EMotion debuting on August 17, 2017

    It was less than a year ago that Henrik Fisker came out with the announcement he was starting a new electric car company under the Fisker name and that the first product would be an electric sedan with more range than a Tesla Model S. The Danish designer must have been working on the project for a lot longer than a year, however, as his second attempt at a car company is ready to show its sedan, labeled the EMotion, on August 17. In the lead up to the debut, Fisker has released more teasers and announced it will start accepting pre-orders on June 30 via the website www.fiskerinc.com. The...

  • Teaser for Fisker EMotion debuting on August 17, 2017

    Henrik Fisker in October announced he was starting a new car company under the Fisker name. His former effort, Fisker Automotive, went bankrupt in 2013, its assets later sold to China’s Wanxiang which used them to start the new company Karma. The new Fisker is based in California and is focused on pure, battery-powered electric cars, as opposed to extended-range electrics like the old Fisker. The first model is to be a sleek sedan that Fisker has now partially revealed. Interestingly, the car features butterfly doors, the type you normally find on exotics like the McLaren P1 and Ferrari...
