The Fisker EMotion all-electric luxury electric sedan will make its official debut at the upcoming 2018 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
In partnership with Fisker, Quanergy Systems is working closely to integrate autonomous hardware, specifically five of Quanergy’s S3 LiDAR sensors, in the Fisker EMotion body design as a seamless part of the vehicle and not an aesthetic eyesore.
Quanergy’s LiDAR sensors lead the industry in all six key commercialization areas of price, performance, reliability, size, weight, and power efficiency, while meeting the mass deployment requirements of durability and dependability. The front end of the Fisker EMotion is inspired by the integration of the LiDAR in the center chrome piece – an aesthetic set to be the design DNA of all future Fisker vehicles.
The smart sensing technology enables real-time 3D mapping and object detection, tracking and classification.
The Fisker Emotion will be available in 2019 and will feature the Quanergy S3 LiDAR sensor and all autonomous drive features as part of an optional upgraded package for customers. Base price of the EMotion is set at $129,900.
The Fisker Emotion is designed with an EV powertrain in mind: longer wheelbase designed for the world’s largest EV battery pack, a stretched cabin for more interior space and more.
Fisker and LG Chem are ensuring that Fisker vehicles like the EMotion will leverage the power of the highest energy density cell in the world by using state-of-the-art NCM chemistry (developed by LG Chem). Fisker is also developing a highly sophisticated and thermally advanced battery pack for the EMotion that will package the largest amount of LG Chem cells ever seen before in an EV. The EMotion will feature battery safety features at cell, module and pack level.
Fisker is working on its Ultra Charger in close collaboration with one of the world’s premiere engineering companies, to fast charge EVs/hybrids (not just Fiskers) “in ways that have never even been dreamed in the industry,” according to the company. With innovation both in battery and charging tech, the Fisker EMotion will charge for 125 miles (201 km) in nine minutes, with a 400 mile (644 km) range overall.
