New Fisker Inc brand to produce 400-mile range electric car next year
Designer behind the original Fisker brand is starting a new namesake company and promises ‘game-changing’ battery tech
The car is said to be a spiritual successor to the discontinued Fisker Karma of 2012 – which itself has become the base for the new Karma Revero – and will make use of “ground-breaking battery technology”, according to Fisker.
The new model will use battery technology developed by Fisker Nanotech, Fisker Inc’s sister compnay and battery division. Fisker Nanotech’s CEO Jack Kavanaugh said to Bloomberg that he targets to move battery range and life to “unprecedented levels” using new packaging methods and lightweight materials.
Henrik Fisker added: “We have the technology that nobody else has. And there is nobody even close to what we are doing out there.”
