9 Jan 2018   Electric Cars

Fisker unveiled the Emotion electric luxury sedan at CES 2018. Featuring automatic butterfly doors and five integrated Quanergy S3 LiDAR sensors ( earlier post ) for autonomous driving up to Level 4, the all-wheel drive EMotion has a projected range of 400 miles (644 km) and a top speed of 161 mph (259 km/h). The multiple electric motors deliver more than 575 KW, pushing the EMotion from 0-60 mph in under 3 seconds. Fisker also displayed a working solid-state battery in a case and an actual bulk battery without a case. The working battery is half the size of a cell phone battery, 2mm thick and with superior energy storage. In November, Fisker’s scientists, including a co-founder of solid-state battery start-up Sakti3, filed patents on flexible, superior energy density solid-state batteries. ( Earlier post .) Fisker’s solid-state batteries will feature three-dimensional electrodes with 2.5 times the energy density of […]
