Front Of Fisker Inc’s 400 Mile EV Shown In New Image

The front of Fisker Inc’s teased 400 mile electric sports car has been revealed (to some degree or other) in a newly released image. As the stylish-looking electric vehicle has yet to be officially unveiled, much less driven by industry journalists, talk of a 400 mile single-charge range will have to be taken with a grain of salt for now.

Here’s a lightened version we just created:

As you’ll remember, Henrik Fisker claims that the company has battery technology that no one else has, that “there is nobody even close to what we are doing out there.” That technology reportedly originates from several professors at UCLA. The technology will, according to Fisker, allow for unparalleled battery lifespan and performance.

With regard to the new image — which joins the shadowy profile image released by Henrik Fisker last week through Twitter — it’s clear that the new car doesn’t look that much like the Fisker Automotive’s Karma model. Fisker Automotive, for those who aren’t familiar, was Henrik Fisker’s earlier electric vehicle (EV) startup — following his short and controversial stint at Tesla. The company went bust a while back and it’s assets were then purchased by the Chinese firm Wanxiang. Wanxiang is now releasing a rebranded and upgraded version of the earlier model, which has been dubbed the Karma Revero. The brand now uses the first Fisker model name — “Karma.” Confusing, I know.

Most notable with the new frontend, apparently, is that it’s intended to be home to some self-driving vehicle tech — including a centrally placed radar and camera system. According to Fisker, these sensors will be used initially for safety features — presumably auto braking and collision avoidance. The model also seems to feature adaptive LED front lighting.

While the image is interesting, and the earlier image showing off the dihedral suicide doors was as well, if Fisker’s new EV is going to prove successful, it will largely be down to the use of new battery technology. An EV with 400 miles of range and the sort of specs that Henrik claims it will have could probably do quite well.
