Henrik Fisker Shows Teaser Of EMotion EV Nose Design

With the expected reveal of Henrik Fisker’s new all-electric EMotion sedan not that long off, the noted designer has now released another new teaser image, this time of the nose design for the model.

With the expected reveal of Henrik Fisker’s new all-electric EMotion sedan not that long off, the noted designer has now released another new teaser image, this time of the nose design for the model.

The design is a bit distinctive, to say the least, as you can see in the tweet below:

Of course, since electric vehicles don’t actually need the same sort of large-grille-focused design that internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles do, this isn’t surprising. Teslas have very distinctive looking “noses” as well, of course.

According to Fisker, there’s also a LiDAR sensor embedded in that front end, it should be noted. So, grille or not, the space isn’t being wasted.

As far as the “eyes like a panther,” I suppose that the description isn’t inaccurate … the look is certainly at least as distinctive as that seen in many other high-end sports car designs.

Autoblog provides more: “The sensor’s placement is also a clever way to integrate the system in an aesthetically pleasing manner. Previous self-driving cars, such as the first-generation autonomous Ford Fusion, had very prominent and ugly sensors mounted to the roof. Up to this point, the best integrated sensors were found on the autonomous Hyundai Ioniq, which hid the sensors in little black rectangles low on the car. They were far more subtle than other implementations, but still looked a bit awkward when spotted.

“The grille also looks larger than the one on the original concept and it leans back more. The entire front fascia has been revised, too, arguably for the better. The cluttered mess of vents, scoops, angles, creases have given way to a simpler, more rounded nose. The only vents left are those on each end of the front bumper.”

While some people may not be wanting to give Henrik Fisker too much of their time right now, considering how things went with the Fisker Karma, I’d say that the upcoming reveal of his all-electric EMotion will probably be pretty interesting. Hopefully he’ll go into more detail about the supposedly game-changing battery tech that’s been developed soon as well.
