Auto: Fisker's back in the Electro Game with an SUV
Fisker originally intended on getting back into the world of green vehicles with the launch of its EMotion luxury sedan powered by solid-state batteries. Initial plans called for this vehicle to be launched towards the end of 2019, but the car has since been pushed back to at least 2021 when it will arrive after the SUV pictured.
The company asserts that its, for now unnamed, SUV will support an 80 kWh battery pack and have 300 miles (482 km) of driving range in entry-level form. The vehicle will also get all-wheel drive, two electric motors, and an intriguing removable roof system providing “an extended open-air atmosphere” without compromising structural integrity.
Fisker will build its electric SUV in the United States and has confirmed that it is considering California, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia as possible locations for the production site.
