• Fisker eMotion Debuts with 24-inch Wheels, 400-Mile Range, and Level 4 Autonomous Capability

    The Long-Awaited Fisker eMotion Has Arived
  • Composed of Carbon Fiber and Lightweight Aluminum it offers a light-weight and economical presence on the road
  • The Deliberate Design Lends to Perfect Aerodynamics
  • Including things like a front spoiler, side rocker panels and potent rear diffuser... all of which are composed of carbon fiber
  • It Rolls On 24-Inch Wheels.. But, that isn't the coolest part...
  • You're seeing it right... Those are BUTTERFLY doors
  • Yup, and there's Falcon Doors Too!!!
  • What An Interesting Way to Bring Together Two Designs.. The doors are controlled by your smartphone but also have hidden touch-sensitive handles
  • It's not all about looks, though... Hidden ever so elegantly are 5 Quanergy LiDARs
  • That Means the eMotion... is capable of level 4 autonomy!
  • All told, this Sapphire Red Beauty comes in at 15 feet long, and around 4.6-feet tall
  • The Interior is just a gorgeous too... featuring ultrasoft leather, carbon fiber center console, and you can even get a vegan interior as an option
  • There are three screens up front for the driver including a curved center scree
  • The rear comes standard with adjustable bucket seats too but a rear bench option is availble
  • More important are the inductive charging ports for each seat and a very unique option....
  • How about that optional 27-inch curved screen in the rear? Some of us don't have TV's in our house that big...
  • 400 miles of range is the standard here as is all-wheel drive
  • Top Speed is estimated to be 161 mph And production will start in mid-2018
  • Would you drive this Tesla Killer?

Henrik Fisker is back with a vengeance!

The Fisker eMotion has officially spread its wings at the Consumer Electronics Show. Henrik Fisker’s latest pièce de résistance is every bit the car we expected it to be. It’s sharp as a tack, has aero bits for days, and carries what can only be described as one of the funkiest door configurations of any car we’ve seen in recent memory. If you thought the Tesla Model X’s falcon doors were treats for the senses, prepare yourselves for what the eMotion has to offer.

Yup, and there’s Falcon Doors Too!!!
The new electric car is provocative to look at, but the doors are the real highlight of the exterior.

The Fisker eMotion is a tremendous return to form for Henrik Fisker. Aesthetically, it looks like a proper sports car. It measures five meters (16.4 feet) long and 1.48 meters (4.8 feet) high. That makes it slightly longer and taller than the Porsche 911 Turbo, which comes in at 4.5 meters long (14.7 feet) and 1.29 meters (4.25 feet) high.

Carbon fiber and lightweight aluminum were used in building the car’s body panels. The panels themselves make up a significant part of the car’s aerodynamic features. The front spoiler, side rocker panels, and rear diffuser are all prominently seen in the design of the eMotion. The new electric car is provocative to look at, but the doors are the real highlight of the exterior. We’ve seen two-door models use butterfly doors before, but we’ve never seen a four-door model use a similar configuration. Fisker takes it to that level by giving the eMotion two butterfly doors in the front and two falcon doors in the back. Throw in the set of 24-inch low-rolling resistant Pirelli tires, and you’re looking at a car whose design can only come from the mind of Henrik Fisker.

The Deliberate Design Lends to Perfect Aerodynamics
On the performance end, the Fisker eMotion is tipped to have a top speed of 161 mph to go with an EV range of “more than” 400 miles

On the performance end, the Fisker eMotion is tipped to have a top speed of 161 mph to go with an EV range of “more than” 400 miles. No details were given on the car’s EV powertrain, but Fisker did say that the eMotion will feature five Integrated Quanergy LIDARs that has the capability to achieve Level 4 autonomous driving. This system is made up of S3 solid-state LiDar Sensors that are integrated into different sections of the car, including one integrated behind the front wheel and another hidden in the lower rear rocker panel.
