When Fisker introduced the Atlantic concept at the New York Auto Show, they were relatively coy on details. Now, documents obtained by InsideEVs have shed new light on the upcoming model.
According to their information, the car will feature a turbocharged four-cylinder engine and an electric drivetrain that produces approximately 300 hp (224 kW / 304 PS). This should enable the model to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 6.5 seconds and have CO2 emissions of roughly 50 g/km.
Sadly, it appears that the Atlantic will cost more than originally estimated. If the documents are correct, the model will be priced between $50,000 and $60,000.
We've already heard reports that the Atlantic was going to miss its planned launch this summer, but the information suggests production could be pushed back as far as mid-2014. This is likely a result of the U.S. Department of Energy blocking the company's access to a government loan.
