FISKER EMOTION TO REDEFINE PREMIUM, ALL-ELECTRIC LUXURY AS FIRST SEDAN TO BOAST 400-MILE RANGE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE WWW.FISKERINC.COM
Los Angeles, CA (October 31, 2016)- Henrik Fisker, entrepreneur and world-renowned automotive designer, through his newly launched Fisker Inc., announced today the design and specifications surrounding the launch of his forthcoming electric vehicle, the Fisker EMotion.
The Fisker EMotion highlights new styles and proportions for the luxury sport sedan category with a sculptural body and greenhouse emphasizing aerodynamics. The vehicle will include a large curved front windscreen pushed forward, diving into an extremely low bonnet. The rear features an integrated spoiler and aggressive functional diffusor to aid aerodynamics, which will help achieve a 161 mph (260 Km/h) top speed and a 400-mile (640 KM) electric range.
Fisker has taken advantage of the newly developed electric power train layout by pushing the vehicle’s entire interior compartment forward and increasing the wheelbase with distinctively short front and rear overhangs, a layout that increases the interior space. The interior will have more space than its closest competitors and more rear legroom than many full-size luxury sedans, despite its sporty silhouette. The Fisker EMotion will feature a composite, carbon fiber and aluminum structure with an innovative battery integration. The EMotion will use a new battery technology using graphene, with battery packs produced by Fisker Nanotech, a joint venture between Fisker Inc. and Nanotech Energy Inc.
The EMotion will be equipped with hardware that will allow fully autonomous driving when approved and released by a soon-to-be-announced partnered supplier. The interior will emphasize ultimate comfort and user interface from both front and rear seats, and all seats will have access to screens and infotainment features.
The Fisker EMotion is scheduled to be produced in an existing facility in the USA. The first deliveries will be announced after the vehicle is shown in mid 2017.
HENRIK FISKER RELAUNCHES FISKER INC.;
ANNOUNCES DEVELOPMENT OF ALL-ELECTRIC PREMIUM VEHICLE DELIVERING WORLD’S LONGEST ELECTRIC RANGE
Los Angeles, CA (October 4, 2016) —Henrik Fisker, entrepreneur and world-renowned automotive designer, founder of Fisker Automotive in 2007, and creator of the 2012 Fisker Karma, the world’s first premium electric car with a range extender, today announced the relaunch of his eponymous company, Fisker Inc., and the development of a new, all-electric premium vehicle featuring a battery technology that will deliver the world’s longest electric range of any production car previously developed.
Scheduled to showcase its first premium, all-electric vehicle, a spiritual successor to the Fisker Karma, in the second half of 2017, the newly launched Fisker Inc. will create electric
vehicles that break the mold of what’s currently available to consumers. The vehicle will feature a patented battery that will deliver a significantly longer life and range than any
battery currently on the market. Fisker Nanotech, the battery arm of Fisker Inc., will pioneer the development of these game-changing batteries.
“FISKER INC. WILL SPEARHEAD A REVOLUTION IN ELECTRIC CARS THAT WILL DISRUPT THE ELECTRIC VEHICLE MARKET AND CHANGE THE WORLD,”
said Henrik Fisker, who serves as Chairman and CEO. “Both the technology and the market are more mature now than when we first started out as pioneers in the electric vehicle
industry, and our new vehicle will be the most innovative and cutting-edge electric car ever created.”
The battery chemistry is unlike anything used by an electric vehicle to date, designed to increase power and provide a longer battery life, while introducing a new packaging methodology and lightweight materials in the battery pack.
“We’re teaming to create a new paradigm of what’s possible in the application of battery technology within the automotive sector,” said Jack Kavanaugh, Chairman of Fisker Nanotech. “Our marriage of expertise and vision will deliver significant battery improvements in areas of density, longevity and speed of charging, contributing to reductions in overall cost.”
“If the electric car is to succeed as a mass market vehicle, we need a radical new battery technology and battery pack integration – and our vehicles will have just that. With our game-changing battery technology, now is the time to develop more affordable, mass market vehicles,” Fisker added.
Fisker Inc.’s debut vehicle will include dynamic, never-before -seen design features, combining advanced materials with the use of the latest optimization software. The car will have more rear legroom and headroom than any of its closest competitors.
In addition to launching a first-of-its-kind premium vehicle, Fisker is developing a mass-market, affordable electric vehicle that will retail for less than its competitors, but will feature a longer electric range.

Henrik Fisker founded Fisker Automotive, introducing the first-ever green lifestyle automotive company, in 2007. In 2012, Fisker Automotive boasted a team of 600 people, raised more than $1 billion in capital and skyrocketed from concept to a full-scale production, sales and marketing company, launching the critically acclaimed Fisker Karma. Fisker Automotive won numerous awards and honors for the Karma, including Time Magazine’s Best Inventions of the Year in 2012, and sold more than 2000 vehicles.
