New Details And Images Emerge On Fisker’s EMotion EV

After the problem-plagued Karma, Henrik Fisker is back to challenge the Tesla Model S with the EMotion EV.

A report from USA Today confirms that the electric vehicle, as suspected, will have a range of 400-miles on a single charge and will carry a base price of $129,000. The report claims that the EMotion also comes with the necessary hardware and software to drive on its own.

“I pushed myself to move car design forward without losing what we love about the automotive shape,” Fisker said.

Some of the EMotion’smore  interesting specs include: 700 horsepower, 24-inch Pirelli tires, all-wheel drive, which is the norm for electric vehicles now, five Quanergy sensors for autonomous driving, a top speed of 161 mph, and a chassis that utilizes carbon fiber and aluminum.

Tech wise, the EMotion has a party trick up its sleeve – a four-zone electrically adjustable tinted roof, while the vehicle itself is approximately the same size as a Model S, measuring in at 16 feet long and five feet high.

Fisker says that the EMotion will have lithium-ion batteries that will allow the vehicle to gain a 127 miles from a charge in just nine minutes. However, he’s also looking into packing solid-state batteries, which he recently secured a patent for, into the vehicle to decrease charge times, extend range, and improve safety.

“Consumers want choices when it comes to cars,” said Fisker. “We believe there is plenty of room for newcomers, especially in the EV space.”

The EMotion should arrive before the end of 2019 and if the vehicle lives up to all of Fisker’s claims, it could be a real rival for the Model S.
