When Henrik Fisker relaunched its electric car startup last year, he announced that their first car will be powered by a new graphene-based hybrid supercapacitor technology, but he later announced that they put those plans on the backburner and instead will use more traditional li-ion batteries.

Now the company is announcing a “breakthrough” in solid-state batteries to power their next-generation electric cars and they are filing for patents to protect their IP.

Get ready for some crazy claims here.

Last year, renowned car designer Henrik Fisker announced a new electric car company called Fisker Inc. It’s his most significant come back to the industry since he left his previous EV startup, Fisker Automotive, in the middle of a bankruptcy back in 2013.

It becomes harder and harder to get excited about Henrik Fisker’s new electric vehicle. As we reported earlier this month, the renowned car designer started a new electric car company called Fisker Inc. and he set up a sister company to bring to market a new hybrid supercapacitor technology in order to create an all-electric vehicle with a range of over 400 miles.

You would think that his reputation as a successful car designer would be enough to create some hype around his project, but now it looks like Fisker is using some shady shortcuts to hype his car and he partly used Electrek to do it. expand full story

The new 2017 Karma will reportedly be very similar to the 2012 Karma

A report from Fisker Buzz (via Autoblog) suggests that the upcoming 2017 Karma, born out of bankrupt Fisker Automotive’s assets, will be very similar to the 2012 Fisker Karma, which is fairly disappointing after about 5 years.

Unsurprisingly, the design will be very similar, but design was never the Karma’s problem. What is particularly disappointing is that it will have the same 2.0-liter hybrid electric powertrain with about 33 miles of all-electric range and 240 miles total range, according to the report.
