Fisker Automotive introduces Atlantic plug-in hybrid sedan concept

Article by Christian Andrei, on April 5, 2012

Fisker Automotive revealed a concept variant of its Atlantic plug-in hybrid sedan, which is anticipated to have a price range of $50,000 to $60,000. It is also expected to have a size similar to the BMW 3-series or Audi A5. The Atlantic is equipped with a BMW four-cylinder engine, which serves as a generator for a second-generation Fisker lithium-ion battery pack powering the electric motors

The vehicle will be offered in both all-wheel drive and rear-drive configurations. The Atlantic concept shares much of the styling of the $103,000 Karma sedan. It boasts of a glass roof with an X-shaped cross-brace, providing more headroom to rear-seat occupants.

The wheels of the vehicle are pushed to the corners, allowing additional legroom for occupants. Executives at Fisker did not give other details about the vehicle, including assembly location, car dimensions, on-sale date and price.

CEO Tom LaSorda disclosed in an interview that the company may be reconsidering whether to assemble the automobile a facility in Wilmington, Del. He said that the entire plan has changed, adding that the Wilmington plant is their primary site but other options are available. They have to determine the best course for the company and its shareholders, he continued.
