Fisker has been teasing us for months by giving out specs of its upcoming electric car but the CES 2018 finally saw Fisker’s new luxury car. The specs, even though they were revealed before the launch, remain impressive and Fisker’s new luxury car can rival all other EV releases during the CES 2018.
Each car costs $130,000 and the company claims that the price is justified by the range of 400 miles. Henrik Fisker, chairman, and CEO of Fisker Inc. was pleased with the launch and said, “We are truly entering a new era in the way the world thinks about vehicles, the way EVs are charged and the way personal consumer electronics are powered – with Fisker Inc. now clearly at the forefront of that revolution through our worldwide launches at CES. With the EMotion, we’re introducing edgy, dramatic and emotionally-charged design/proportions – complemented with technological innovation that moves us into the future. That design balance is what has made the Fisker brand emotionally connect with our consumers.”
Fisker hopes to gradually introduce the vehicle to the EV market through the new startup EMotion. However, he hinted that it will be coming to the United States first. In his statement, he said that it “will be produced in the United States at a location to be announced during the second half of 2018.”
Fisker also launched the solid-state battery at the event and claimed that the battery would give an electric car a range of over 500 miles in a one minute charge. The Fisker Inc. press release said “The Fisker EMotion has been proportioned to accommodate an advanced high-energy density, patent-pending battery pack and cooling system. It can be charged through the vehicle’s proprietary UltraCharger™ technology, charging over 100 miles in nine minutes.”
We will see if Fisker’s new luxury car has what it takes to challenge Tesla’s Model S. You can check it out in the video below:
