Henrik Fisker, founder of Fisker Inc, confirmed that the the Emotion EV, the company’s first model, will be launched internationally on August 17.
The Car Features what company calls 'state-of-the-art' battery chemistry with the world's highest energy density, which has resulted in a range of over 644km on a full charge. The car can also be charged in nine minutes. It will feature the latest level of autonomy and connection to its environment - a Lidar sensor is hidden in the car's front central darkened area, however, Fisker hasn't clarified the level of autonomy the Emotion will be capable of just yet.
Based on earlier images, the Car could feature butterfly doors for the front and rear doors. The Emotion EV will be built by VLF, a manufacturer Fisker partly owns. Software that goes into this car will be developed and supplied by external companies, which Fisker believes helps streamline costs and maximises efficiency.
Fisker claimed that clever packaging allowed for better legroom and interior space. "The entire cabin has been moved forward very much, and we lowered the bonnet of the vehicle to get better aerodynamics," he said. "Because of the better packaging of an EV model, we have been able to create a more dynamic and sporty design but the legroom is on par with large luxury saloons."
Fisker also confirmed that a second, higher volume and lower cost model will follow. "Production for that will be handled by an established carmaker, because the established car brands have really mastered high-volume, high-quality car production," he said.
Fisker confirmed that the Emotion will be built on a modular EV platform. "It will be scalable, so more models can be created from it in the future," he said.
