Fisker Atlantic Gets Revealed for First Time
Here's the first batch of completely revealing images of the Fisker Atlantic (aka Fisker's "Project Nina"). The low-cost—downright cheap compared to the Fisker Karma—Fisker Atlantic will make its worldwide debut at the 2012 New York Auto Show on either Wednesday or Thursday of this week, but thanks to Czech website Autoforum, we have two images of the Atlantic in all its glory.
Codenamed Project Nina, the Atlantic will fall in Fisker's lineup below the $100,000-plus Karma. We expect the Atlantic to debut with a base MSRP of roughly $50,000 and be positioned to compete with loaded varieties of the BMW 3 Series and Audi A4.
Production of the plug-in hybrid Fisker Atlantic is tentatively scheduled to begin in mid-2013. The Atlantic will be built at Fisker's facility in Wilmington, Delaware and will feature a BMW-supplied turbocharged four-cylinder engine as its range extender.
Stay tuned for more info on the Atlantic when it debuts later this week at the New York Auto Show.
