Rumors about an all-new Fisker model for this year’s IAA turn out to be true, as the company releases the first teaser shot for the car, called the Surf.
Based on the picture the car appears to be a hatchback, or a shooting brake. Whatever it is, Fisker promises it will ‘wow’ global audiences with its combination of Uncompromised Responsible Luxury and head-turning design. The car is powered by a system similar to the one in the Fisker Karma, which means it’s an electric vehicle with extended range (EVer).
Fisker says it is the car for those with an active lifestyle. That’s all they reveal for now, more details will be announced at the show.
In other Fisker news, the company has signed an agreement with BMW that will cover the supply of engines and other components for future Fisker models:
BMW will supply a four-cylinder turbocharged engine for the next generation of Fisker cars, code-named ‘Project Nina’, which are scheduled to go into production in the re-commissioned former GM plant in Wilmington, Delaware at the end of 2012 and be on sale globally in 2013. The agreement calls for up to 100,000 engine units per year at peak volume.
The first ‘Project Nina’ derivative will be a mid-size premium sedan utilizing Fisker’s EVer™ (electric vehicle with extended range) technology to deliver on Fisker’s corporate vision of Uncompromised Responsible Luxury.
