Fisker Atlantic Luxury Hybrid Sedan Revealed

Fisker has unveiled a new electric hybrid car at the New York Auto Show, the Fisker Atlantic luxury sedan.

Unlike Fisker's all-electric supercar, the Fisker Karma, the Atlantic is a far more conventional affair, though the details are still very scarce.

It'll sport Fisker's second-generation EVer (Electric Vehicle with extended range) powertrain, which includes a four-cylinder gasoline engine. We don't know the exact range on electric power alone, but Fisker claims the EVer technology is designed to reduce the "range anxiety" that comes with an all-electric powertrain.

The design of the prototype exposed at the New York Auto Show, which Fisker calls "dramatic," should be very close to what the production version of the car looks.

Price and date of availability are also unknowns at this point, but Autoblog has heard the car will be priced similarly to an Audi A5 or an upper-end BMW 3.

The most important takeaway from this unveiling is Fisker's firm commitment to actually bringing the car to the market. Fisker Karma has been receiving a lot of bad press recently: The first 239 units got recalled in December 2011, and a later unit broke down during a Consumer Report test. Fisker would do well to bring a more reliable car to the market as soon as possible.
