New all-electric Fisker EMotion revealed at CES

Fisker’s EMotion Tesla Model S rival claims to produce 769bhp and has a range of 400 miles on a single charge

American EV manufacturer Fisker has unveiled the EMotion saloon at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, aiming to take on the Tesla Model S

It will cost $129,000 (£95,000) with a planned introduction in 2020, making it $6,000 cheaper than the Tesla Model S 100D. It’s still undetermined if UK customers can purchase an EMotion, but for Fisker’s domestic market, customers can reserve one now for $2,000.

According to the Californian marque, the EMotion produces 575kW (769bhp) thanks to an electric motor powering each wheel, while a range of 400 miles is also claimed. That’s more power and range than the Tesla, but off the line it isn’t as quick with Fisker claiming a 0-60mph is achievable in less than three seconds. The Tesla can cover the same sprint in 2.5 seconds. 

Fisker also says the EMotion can add 'over 100 miles' of range in nine minutes using the vehicle's UltraCharger technology, though it's not clear how quickly the batteries can be topped up from a standard public charge point.

The aluminium nose of the EMotion houses an innovative LIDAR system for autonomous capabilities, while the side mirrors conceal cameras that enable panoramic 360-degree views of the car to help with parking and safety at high speeds. 

Images of the EMotion from CES show a complicated front end with split headlights and a small chrome-covered grille, as well as a coupe-like four-door body. There's a small boot spoiler, too, while short rear overhangs and huge 24-inch alloy wheels give it a sporty look. Fisker also states that the EMotion is the world’s first four-door car that sports ‘butterfly’ doors.

Fisker is also expected to unveil its potentially game-changing solid-state battery technology at CES, which can theoretically be fully charged in as little as 60 seconds. Should a breakthrough in the technology happen, it could be implemented into Fisker EVs by 2023 and potentially replace traditional lithium-ion batteries.
