Fisker EMotion concept unveiled
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?
