Review: Fisker EMotion EV

The Fisker EMotion will include a large curved front windscreen pushed forward, diving into an extremely low bonnet. The all-wheel drive sedan’s doors open in a partial gullwing fashion and are controlled by smartphone. The rear features an integrated spoiler and aggressive functional diffusor to aid aerodynamics, which will help achieve a 161 mph (260 Km/h) top speed and a 400-mile (640 KM) electric range.

Fisker has taken advantage of the newly developed electric power train layout by pushing the vehicle’s entire interior compartment forward and increasing the wheelbase with distinctively short front and rear overhangs, a layout that increases the interior space. The EMotion will feature a composite, carbon fiber and aluminum structure with an innovative battery integration.

The car will also be equipped with hardware that will allow fully autonomous driving. Quanergy will supply the the EMotion’s LIDAR  Level 4 self-driving abilities when it is released, employing sensor hardware and perception software. The five LIDAR sensors (one behind glass on its nose, the others near each of its wheels) help make self-driving a reality.
