Project Nina Named the Fisker Atlantic, uses a BMW Turbocharged Engine as a Range ExtenderBy Ant On March 31, 2012 Under Cars
The Atlantic is a four-door plug-in hybrid that will sit under the Karma in Fisker’s range with a price that will likely hover around the $50,000 (equal to €37,800) mark, or about half the cost of the larger Karma sedan.
The mid-size model will make use of BMW’s 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline engine as a range extender, under a deal signed with the Bavarian company back in 2011. We don’t know any specific details about its plug-in electric drive yet.
If all goes well and Fisker moves past its recent troubles, the Atlantic will form the base for more models such as a coupe variant.
We’ll know more about the Atlantic and whether it will enter production at the former General Motors plant in Delaware in 2013, or if Fisker has further delayed its market launch.
