Fisker Officially Announces An Extreme Off-Road Package For The Ocean Called ’Force E’
Earlier this month, Fisker teased a new off-road avatar of the recently-unveiled Ocean SUV.The renders released back then showed the SUV with off-road tires, wider stance and featured ‘UN’ lettering on it suggesting that it would be pitched as a rescue vehicle.
As it turns out, Fisker has made this official. Moniker’d as ‘Force E’, the off-road package is targeting rescue operations and will certainly invoke interest among various organizations involved in humanitarian activities. Well, the automaker seems serious about the Ocean SUV after a couple of not-so-successful attempts with its earlier products.
2022 Fisker Ocean
Back in March 2019, Henrik Fisker, the CEO of Fisker Inc., announced that the company is planning to build an affordable electric four-wheel-drive SUV with a range of 300 miles. But no one really took him seriously given his propensity to overcommit and under-deliver.
Make no mistake; Fisker has produced some of the most beautiful-looking vehicles to date, but the company never really hit it off. This time, however, Fisker has lived up to its word and revealed its first electric SUV at the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show. Called the Fisker Ocean, the SUV looks to be a wholesome package and has enough to take on some of the fiercest competitors in the market. But will the Ocean see the light of the day?
2019 Karma Pininfarina GT Coupe
Karma Automotive, the company that emerged after the bankruptcy of Henrik Fisker’s first automotive venture, came to the 2019 Shanghai with its own "Big Three": A flamboyant open-top concept, the revised Revero GT and this lavish and elegant two-door sports car penned by Pininfarina which could be produced in limited quantities by Pininfarina if enough buyers get together. As it’s based on the Revero’s underpinnings, it should be at least as quick and agile if not more so.
Karma has been around for a few years already, but it was seen as a stagnant company. After all, its only product has been the Revero, essentially an exercise in rebadging the Fisker Karma. In a way, it makes sense as Chinese company Wanxiang who bought Fisker’s assets (as well as a production plant and other things) paid over $149 million for them and, anyway, the Karma’s bad rep was never due to its design since it’s arguably one of the prettiest four-door GTs of the 21st century (just look at the curvaceous rear fenders).
Last year, Karma introduced the Aliso, a limited-edition version of the Revero and the company announced that only 15 will be made with a base price of $145,000, some $15,000 on top of the Revero’s base MSRP of $130,000. This luscious coupe we see here should be at least as expensive if it will be put into production. If not, just look at it in concept form and think that it’s a source of inspiration for Karma products to roll out in the near future.
Fisker Will Tap Into The ’Affordable’ EV Market Fray With An Electric SUV
Do you remember Henrik Fisker? He is the man behind the original Karma PHEV that drove Fisker Automotive into bankruptcy. However, Fisker has now announced a sub $40,000 SUV that will be one of the three mass-market cars that his company, Fisker Inc., plans to build in the near future. The automaker is aiming for a 300-mile range and is planning to launch this unnamed SUV in the second half of 2021. Will Mr. Fisker be able to secure a chunk of the market this time around?
Fisker’s Second Run Looks Promising Thanks to an Investment From Caterpillar for Solid-State Battery Technology
Competition in the all-electric passenger vehicle segment is heating up, and one of the major points of contention is battery technology. Lithium-ion packs are all the rage these days, but critical figures like range-per-charge and charge times are lagging compared to the internal combustion alternatives. However, technology development might soon turn the tables, and now, it looks as though Caterpillar is considering solid-state batteries as a possible investment for the future.
The Fisker eMotion Has a Beautiful Interior
The Fisker eMotion’s debut at the Consumer Electronics Show caught a few people by surprise. The debut itself was expected, but the features in the car were more than what most people thought they’d be. The eMotion’s interior is a good example of that. In a word, it’s beautiful. That doesn’t come as a shock to those who know Henrik Fisker’s work, but in some ways, the legendary auto designer seems to have outdone himself this time.
Fisker eMotion Debuts with 24-inch Wheels, 400-Mile Range, and Level 4 Autonomous Capability
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.
The Fisker EMotion Is A Four-Door Lamborghini with Butterfly Doors
It’s been around seven years since the Fisker Karma was a still a thing, and Henrik Fisker appears to be back in business with another company. With Fisker Automotive bankrupt since 2013 and the Fisker Karma revived by a Chinese company under a different name, Henrik founded Fisker Inc. in 2016 and set out to develop an all-electric sports car. Less than two years have passed since then, and Fisker unveiled his first automobile in years. It’s called the EMotion, it’s gorgeous to look at, and it has the coolest set of four doors ever created.
Fisker eMotion Heads To CES 2018 With Solid-State Battery And Fast Charging
When it comes to automotive technology and the Consumer Electronics Show, anything and all things battery related is obviously quite the hot topic. This year is no different, and Fisker is looking to make a splash thanks to its new solid-state battery and fast charging on the soon-to-be-revealed eMotion sedan, as teased in a series of Tweets from the man himself, Mr. Henrik Fisker.

Merry Christmas: Henrik Fisker Teases the EMotion’s Interior Just Weeks Before CES Debut
It’s been a long time coming, but the Fisker Emotion looks like it’ll be the best thing created since toilet paper… or… uh, at least since the Tesla Model S, anyway. Looking at the important bits – it could use Fisker’s new battery, so it’ll have 500 miles of range, it’s gorgeous, and is said to offer level 5 autonomy. Butterfly doors are also standard because, well, Fisker. But, the one thing we haven’t had the chance to lay eyes on yet is the interior, but that’s soon about the change as Fisker gears up for a full review at CES in January. And, before that happens, the man has decided to release a sketch showing off a basic design concept with a massive color palette followed by a shot of a door trim panel being wrapped in leather. Let’s check ‘em out…
Fisker’s Newest Project is an Electric Shuttle; Deliveries Start in Late-2018
Proclaimed as an “SUV you actually want to ride in,” Henrik Fisker has finally shown off his newest creation and the second model to be proposed for the Fisker lineup. Meet the Fisker Orbit, a model that Fisker claims will change the future of mobility forever, and has yet to go beyond the rendering stage, but is apparently slated for delivery starting in October of 2018 – that’s less than one year from the time of this writing. The company, via its Facebook page, said its an “electric, connected, autonomous shuttle for smart cities.” According to Boss Magazine, the new Orbit will be built in collaboration with Hakim Unique Group of China, a brand valued at $32 billion with 160 subsidiaries globally.

Fisker EMotion Prototype Revealed – Reservations Start At $2,000
Premium all-electric sports car fans, say hello to the latest four-door vying for your lust and adoration. It’s called the EMotion, and it comes from Henrik Fisker, the renowned auto designer who gave shape to rides like the Aston Martin DB9 and VLF Force 1 V10, among others. The EMotion is Fisker’s second attempt at creating an electrified performance machine, following the Karma hybrid sedan unveiled back in 2011. While attractive and technologically impressive, the Karma was a bit too complicated for its own good, resulting in the occasional parking lot fire and not much success. But now, the calendar says 2017, and the EMotion looks like a solid effort that could very well avoid the shortcomings of the Karma and redeem the Fisker nameplate.
Fisker revealed a picture of the official prototype model in a tweet, following up with a video on the Fisker website. The specs are impressive – up to 400 miles is possible between charge-ups, while just 9 minutes will yield as much as 125 miles, beating the Tesla Supercharger system by a wide margin (30 minutes for 170 miles). Thing is, our friends over at electrek report the EMotion will run on regular old lithium-ion batteries, rather than a graphene supercapacitor promised before, so we wouldn’t be surprised if those numbers changed, although the Fisker website is still claiming the figures above. Either way, Fisker is taking pre-orders now, asking $2,000 for a deposit. Pricing is set at $130,000. Tune in tomorrow for the official debut.
