Since renowned car designer Henrik Fisker announced a new electric car company called Fisker Inc. last year, he has been hyping it with renders and even through sockpuppeting on articles.
We are supposed to see the vehicle for the first time at an unveiling in August, as announced last month, but now Fisker is releasing the first few actual photos of the car.

As discussed during an interview with Electrek last month, Fisker is positioning the vehicle, called the EMotion, as a pricey low-volume effort looking to compete against something like the Tesla Model S.
The big difference is that he claims that the vehicle will bring to market a new powertrain that will use a hybrid supercapacitor technology – something that has never been done in electric vehicles and for good reasons.
He claims the vehicle would get over 400 miles of range on a single charge and a top speed of 161 mph.
Now he releases the first few images of the vehicle:
In a press release sent out with the new images, Fisker revealed a few more details about the vehicle:
“The EMotion seamlessly combines technology into the design of the vehicle. The front end’s bright aluminum centerpiece houses a LIDAR system behind a tinted screen. Side mirrors conceal two cameras, which enable panoramic, 360-degree views to the driver.
The world of racing inspired some of the EMotions more daring elements. Extreme aerodynamics include frontal, side, and rear carbon aero elements, as well as a low hood line surrounded by sculptural front fenders and a tapered green house with large sculptural rear fenders. The side DLO (Daylight Opening) is finished with a signature EMotion double-polished aluminum window molding. The rear end has a dramatic section with thin taillights, and an integrated lower carbon diffuser.”
He also confirmed a partnership with The Hybrid Shop to sell and service the vehicle and offer “a one-of-a-kind, white glove concierge service, providing Fisker owners a seamless day “free of interruption” for routine maintenance and servicing.”
More information will be released this month leading to the start of pre-orders on June 30th, according to the press release, seemingly ahead of the previously announced unveiling date of August 17th.
