Henrik Fisker, creator of the 2012 Fisker Karma, the world’s first premium electric car with a range extender, announced the relaunch of his company, Fisker Inc., and the development of a new, all-electric premium vehicle featuring a battery technology that will deliver the world’s longest electric range of any production car previously developed.
Scheduled to showcase its first premium, all-electric vehicle, in the second half of 2017, the newly launched Fisker Inc. will create electric vehicles that break the mold of what’s currently available to consumers. The vehicle will feature a patented battery that will deliver a significantly longer life and range than any battery currently on the market. Fisker Nanotech, the battery arm of Fisker Inc., will pioneer the development of these game-changing batteries.
The battery chemistry is unlike anything used by an electric vehicle to date, designed to increase power and provide a longer battery life, while introducing a new packaging methodology and lightweight materials in the battery pack.
Fisker Inc.’s debut vehicle will include dynamic, never-before-seen design features, combining advanced materials with the use of the latest optimization software. The car will have more rear legroom and headroom than any of its closest competitors.
In addition to launching a first-of-its-kind premium vehicle, Fisker is developing a mass-market, affordable electric vehicle that will retail for less than its competitors, but will feature a longer electric range.
