Says graphene batteries won’t go into production yet
Henrik Fisker, initiator of a project to start an electric car company relying on a long-range battery that uses graphene, recently stated that the company’s upcoming electric luxury sedan will use lithium-ion batteries to power the car rather than the graphene battery technology currently under development for future models.
EMotion is slated to officially debut on August 17, 2017 with a tentative release in 2019. Pricing starts at $129,900, placing it in the same range as Tesla Model S. It will be interesting to see at what point, if at all, graphene-based batteries will be used in these cars.
Fisker says the EMotion will still offer 400+ miles of electric range. Quick charging can return 100 miles of range to the battery in nine minutes using what the company calls UltraCharger technology.
“Very proud of what we are creating!” Fisker said via Twitter recently.
His EMotion EV features dramatic suicide-butterfly doors and its sporty wheels are made from aluminum and carbon fiber. Other high-tech features include a lidar sensor recessed in the front bumper to be used for autonomous driving.
The EMotion also boasts a Lipik Electrochromic glass roof and rear passenger windows, which can be tinted by the touch of a button.
