After releasing a few teasers over the past few weeks and using some shady techniques to hype the product in subsequent articles, Henrik Fisker officially unveiled the design of its upcoming new electric car today and gave it a name: EMotion.

As you can see from the renders above and below, the vehicle features a low profile, quite aggressive-looking front fascia, and a large curved windshield not unlike the Tesla Model X’s.
In a press release for the unveil today (read in full below), Fisker claims that the vehicle will “redefine” the all-electric luxury segment as the “first sedan to boast a 400-mile range”. As previously reported, Fisker plans to achieve this with a new graphene-based hybrid supercapacitor technology that has so far proven hard to scale.
Additionally, he claims that the vehicle will feature fully autonomous driving capability.
Those are bold claims considering the vehicle doesn’t even have an official production timeline.
Fisker only says that it will be produced in an “existing facility in the US” and that a timeline to the first deliveries will be announced next year after they reveal an actual prototype and not just those renderings:

Henrik Fisker Unveils Official Name and Design Specifications of Fisker Inc.’s Inaugural All-Electric Vehicle
Fisker EMotion to Redefine Premium, All-Electric Luxury as First Sedan to Boast 400-Mile Range
Los Angeles, CA (October 31, 2016)—Henrik Fisker, entrepreneur and world-renowned automotive designer, through his newly launched Fisker Inc., announced today the design and specifications surrounding the launch of his forthcoming electric vehicle, the Fisker EMotion.
The Fisker EMotion highlights new styles and proportions for the luxury sport sedan category with a sculptural body and greenhouse emphasizing aerodynamics. The vehicle will include a large curved front windscreen pushed forward, diving into an extremely low bonnet. 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 interior will have more space than its closest competitors and more rear legroom than many full-size luxury sedans, despite its sporty silhouette. The Fisker EMotion will feature a composite, carbon fiber and aluminum structure with an innovative battery integration. The EMotion will use a new battery technology using graphene, with battery packs produced by Fisker Nanotech, a joint venture between Fisker Inc. and Nanotech Energy Inc.
The EMotion will be equipped with hardware that will allow fully autonomous driving when approved and released by a soon-to-be-announced partnered supplier. The interior will emphasize ultimate comfort and user interface from both front and rear seats, and all seats will have access to screens and infotainment features.
The Fisker EMotion is scheduled to be produced in an existing facility in the USA. The first deliveries will be announced after the vehicle is shown in mid 2017
