The 2009 Fisker Hybrid Sports Sedan will make its world debut next year in January at the Detroit Motor Show. But until then, Fisker released the first official image of the hybrid sports sedan. The Hybrid Sports Sedan will have a starting price of $80,000. Initial deliveries will commence in the 4th quarter of 2009 with annual production projected to reach 15,000 cars.
Design and technology development are already underway for the first production car. All models will feature cutting-edge plug-in hybrid technology penned as Quant um Drive, developed by Quantum Technologies exclusively for Fisker Automotive. This all-new plug–in Quantum Drive chassis layout will allow Fisker to design innovative luxury cars with uncompromised proportions.
The Fisker name has attracted and attained worldwide brand recognition, thanks to years of first-class automotive designs. Over his 18 years in the car design business, Henrik Fisker has left his thumbprint on some of the most highly regarded automobiles. His creations range from the BMW Z8, Aston Martin DB9 & V8 Vantage to his most recent creations – the Tramonto and Latigo CS, designed under the Fisker Coachbuild nameplate. Fisker Automotive will retain the orange and blue logo originated at Fisker Coachbuild.
Performance details for the first car are impressive achieving 50 miles
(80 kilometers) on a pure electric charge. Additionally, by further utilizing a gasoline or diesel engine offered by Fisker, one can extend the total range of their Fisker to more than 620 miles (1000 kilometers). The first Fisker will also deliver an extraordinary 100 miles per gallon — performance figures that will ultimately help to reduce the need for the importation of foreign oil.
