In his latest tweet Henrik Fisker unveiled the Fisker EMotion concept.

Is it just me or it resembles a Tesla Model 3 on steroids?! But the kind of steroids that transforms you in Shrek not Hulk… It seems that designers tried very hard to make the front different from Tesla Model 3 and made it look weird, while the back looks great but very similar. I do hope that it remains mirrorless in its production version, at least as an option.

 

Well here is the tweet:

 

Usually I don’t give this kind of news much credit, but Henrik Fisker – with all the problems – did delivered the Fisker Karma.

We don’t have to wait very long to see if it really gets a 400 miles (644 km) range, since the production car debut is expected for mid-2017. I’m really curious about the graphene hybrid battery with some supercapacitor’s characteristics. What he’s promising is really revolutionary and I hope he can deliver it.

 

Henrik Fisker seems to be following Elon Musk’s steps, since he already said that the Fisker EMotion will be priced to compete with Tesla Model S, but an electric car more affordable than the Chevrolet Bolt EV and the Tesla Model 3 will be introduced later.

I think that good examples should be followed without any shame, so it’s nice to see Henrik Fisker moving away from his Karma PHEV past and embrace BEVs, while giving Tesla some credit for it. Unlike some traditional carmakers that still talk crap about BEVs and Tesla, just because they feel threatened by the future.

 

Since the production car is expected to be unveiled in mid-2017, what we see now is probably what we’ll get. There isn’t much time left to make major redesigns.

What do you think? Will Henrik Fisker deliver what he’s promising?

I hope to be proved wrong, but I’ve got zero faith in Fisker. He’s a conventional car guy, a talented designer (not engineer), and someone who can offer exclusivity.

The Karma was a design jewel killed by terrible engineering. This isn’t a design jewel, and while the engineering may not be terrible I see no reason to think it’ll be up there with the best.

I agree that it is reminiscent of Model 3, especially in profile. That wouldn’t be a problem if it was still somewhat distinctive and looked better, but it fails to meet the latter requirement.

Sadly, for him at least, I think the main effects of Fisker Automotive will be to taint his previously stellar reputation while burning the investors’ cash. Let’s hope I’m wrong.
