Fisker has officially unveiled its all-new model, the Atlantic sedan. The Atlantic is being unveiled as a design prototype. Fisker describes the extended-range electric Atlantic as a luxury four-door sporting sedan with a practical interior.

"It is aimed at young families who want to drive an impactful, high-end vehicle while making a positive statement about responsibilities - both in terms of their commitment to sustainability and the practicalities of everyday life."

Like the Karma sedan, the Fisker Atlantic is a plug-in hybrid vehicle that allows drivers to switch manually or automatically between electric and gasoline driving modes and sustain the charge of its lithium ion batteries on the move. The Atlantic uses the latest second generation EVer (Electric Vehicle with extended range) technology. Its four-cylinder gasoline engine acts as a generator and is not mechanically connected to the wheels. It's expected that the four-cylinder engine will be a turbocharged unit borrowed from BMW. The standard powertrain will be configured for rear-wheel drive and an all-wheel drive version will be offered as an option.

"We are exceptionally proud of the Atlantic design prototype, and believe we have created another groundbreaking car that looks and will drive like nothing else on the road in this class," said Henrik Fisker, co-founder, Executive Chairman, and Design Director of Fisker Automotive.

"Fisker Automotive is transitioning from a start-up automaker to a fully-fledged mainstream car manufacturer and the Atlantic is a crucial milestone in that process," said Tom LaSorda, CEO Fisker Automotive. "We have a long way to go, but in the near future Fisker intends to deliver this exceptional American-designed, engineered, and manufactured vehicle to showrooms worldwide."
