The new company, the relaunch of Fisker, embodies the strong, emotional connection of the automobile through design, innovative technology and a passion to take the driving experience to the next level.
In its previous incarnation, Fisker Automotive was founded in California in 2007 to be the driving force in producing new, innovative and environmentally friendly automobiles with a leading edge design far ahead of its time.
But now, the challenge is to create electric vehicles that breaks the barriers of cost and range in every segment. The company first launch a high-tech vehicle in the premium segment, working simultaneously in a high volume, affordable vehicle utilizing the advanced battery technology from the premium vehicle.
Fisker specially works on the Fisker Nanotech, the battery division of Fisker Inc, developing through a partnership with a group of California-based scientists and innovators, focused on developing the first automotive battery that will break new ground in electric range, battery life, faster charging times and overall cost reduction.
On the other side the engineers have enhanced body construction in several areas by combining advanced materials with the latest optimization software, allowing the creation of dramatic and organic architectures with more spacious and ergonomic interiors, replacing the traditional uni-body and uni-material philosophy with the 'Right Material in the Right Place for the Right Reason'.
This means the most efficient construction is applied incorporating each of the material’s unique properties such as strength, specific stiffness, thermal expansion, and corrosion resistance.
Actually Fisker told the new premium car will have a top speed of 260 km/h (161 mph) and a range of 640 km (460 mi).
