Atlantic Concept Newest Member of Fisker Family
Fisker unveiled its growing family with the introduction of the Atlantic Concept. The smaller, less expensive sibling of the Karma is a 4-door luxury sedan with coupe-like styling (yes, there are actually 4 doors).
Like the Karma, the Atlantic is a plug-in series hybrid that allows drivers to switch manually or automatically between electric and gasoline driving modes. While we do know the Atlantic uses second generation EVer (Electric Vehicle with extended range) technology and has a four-cylinder gasoline engine, we don't know the exact range that can be achieved on electric power alone.
The rear doors of the Atlantic are difficult to detect at first glance, giving the car the feel and look of a two door coupe. A unique panoramic glass roof refered to as a 'spider' structure features X shaped cross members that, according to Fisker, provide rollover protection, as well as additional haedroom. The Atlantic’s long wheelbase also affords extra legroom for rear passengers and more space in the trunk.
As for the price, Fisker has not been specific, only that it is somewhere between an Audi A5 and the upper end of the BMW 3-Series. So, about half the price of a $102,000 Karma, give or take. Also, no word on when production will begin.
