Fisker promises a driving range of 680 miles with its new hybrid
Up until this point in time, production hybrid cars have been homely-looking (
) to downright hideous in the eyes of some people (
). Fisker Automotive is looking to
add a dash of style to the hybrid realm
with its new Hybrid Premium Sports Sedan (HPSS).
The sedan was penned by famed automotive design Henrik Fisker whose credits include the gorgeous
Aston Martin DB9
Aston Martin V8 Vantage
. The equally impressive HPSS looks somewhat like a cross between a
2009 Chevrolet Camaro
(rear 3/4 view) and a
2007 Maserati GranTurismo
"The sleek design accentuating the long hood is a direct result of our breakthrough chassis which carries the battery pack at the center of the vehicle between the two axles," remarked Henrik Fisker, CEO of Fisker Automotive. "This positioning provides optimal vehicle driving dynamics, maximum safety, proportionate design as well as industry standard performance figures within this car class."
Fisker provided no details on specific powertrain details, but did note that the HPSS will be a plug-in hybrid with a battery-only range of 50 miles. When used in conjunction with a gasoline or diesel engine, the range jumps to an impressive (and very optimistic) 620 miles. The resulting fuel economy is estimated to approach 100 MPG.
Given the rakish looks of the HPSS, one would expect a potent internal combustion engine to be paired to the hybrid system, but the fuel economy numbers provided by Fisker suggest a more meager engine.
Fisker's HPSS will debut at the Detroit Auto Show in January 2009, while deliveries are expected to commence in Q4 2009. Annual production of the HPSS is expected to reach 15,000 while each car will set you back roughly $80,000 USD.
