Yes folks, Henrik’s back in business, having learned from past mistakes. Learned how to replicate them exactly, that is.
Name: Fisker Emotion.
Age: It’s brand flipping new. Are you blind?
But it looks like the last one, the what was it called again? Karma thingy. That’s probably because you have dead eyes. The Fisker Emotion looks nothing like the Fisker Karma – or a Karma Revero for that matter. You’re simply imagining it, because, as I’ve already pointed out, your eyes are dead.
But don’t you think the proportions a bit off? Do I have to keep repeating the thing about your eyes? Look, the car’s creator, Henrik Fisker, (he created the DB9 you know), told Autocar he “decided to take a risk to change the proportions – it’s a risk because people aren’t used to it.” Those are his words, for which we give thanks.
Hold on a second there, I heard that Ian Callum designed the DB9 and the V8 Vantage. Lies! Callumny! Henrik Fisker is a styling genius! You on the other hand have dead…
Yes, I get it – Eyes. But not so fast. The Karma wasn’t exactly a packaging paragon and looking at these photos, the Emotion doesn’t look a whole lot more promising. Ah but you’re wrong there matey. Listen to what Henrik told Autocar. “Because of the better packaging of an EV model, we have been able to create a more dynamic and sporty design but the leg room is on par with large luxury saloons.” See? Oh, I forgot. The eye thing…
Very amusing. So what’s powering this baby? Ah, now this is the really clever bit. It’s an EV of course, but the batteries, (which will be made by Fisker Nanotech) use graphene technology for longer range, shorter charging times and enhanced life.
But isn’t graphene still an unproven technology? As far as I can gather nobody has come up with a verifiable production-ready battery. Wrong! It’s all in hand. As I said, Henrik Fisker is a genius. He knows as much about battery tech as he does about car design.
Hmmm, you mean like the spontaneous combustion issue affecting Karmas back in 2012? That never happened. It was a conspiracy orchestrated by jealous Tesla fanboys. They’ll stop at nothing.
Okay, so when can I buy one? The Fisker Emotion will launch on 17th August, Henrik Fisker has confirmed. Those are his words, for which…
You’re thankful… Yes I know, but that doesn’t tell me when I can buy one. Look, it’s absolutely not vapourware. You’re just suggesting that because of your eyes.
That gag’s wearing a little thin now. What? Only that one?
Do mention: Henrik Fisker as the next Elon Musk.
Don’t mention: Fisker Force 1/Aston Martin lawsuit/Consumer Reports… we could be here for some time.
