Fisker Orbit Is A Fully Autonomous Electric Mobility Shuttle

Following a teaser last month, Fisker has unveiled the all-new Orbit.

Created as part of an alliance with China’s Hakim Unique Group, the Orbit has been designed to become the “world’s most appealing autonomous shuttle for smart cities.”

The companies were coy on specifics but confirmed the Orbit is a fully autonomous electric vehicle and the first deliveries are slated to occur by the end of 2018. As part of the agreement between the two companies, Fisker Inc. will be responsible for designing and developing the vehicle while the Hakim Unique Group will handle its marketing and operations in Asia.

In a statement, Henrik Fisker said “The combination of our breakthrough automotive technology, design prowess and unique vantage point as industry revolutionaries – and Jack’s [Hakim Unique Group chairman Jack Wong] truly integrated vision of smart cities – is powerful. I am very excited about making the impossible, possible with intelligent urban ecosystems – starting with the development of one of the world’s most forward-thinking and uniquely designed electric, autonomous shuttles: The Fisker Orbit.”

Autocar reports the Orbit will be launched in Hangzhou, China and will have an interior that reportedly resembles a hotel lobby. Fisker has already received “interest from various corporate campuses” so it’s possible that the model will expand far beyond China in the future.

    that is pretty damn futuristic. so much so, i doubt many people will be able to accept it’s design at first. “people don’t like change”. that quote relates to drastic, and this design represents drastic change. I think its perfect, in that it makes lots of design sense.

    Wow. I was drawing/designing these grade school pods years ago. Looks like something from an 80’s future mobile device concept. I’ve seen razors and vacuums with more design interest and aesthetic intellect.
    Fisker…a “wannabe” Musk-rat?

      No kidding. If these godless, soulless pods are the future, I hope I don’t live to see it.

    Kill it. Kill it before it grows and multiplies.
