While the Indian government envisages a complete transformation to EVs by 2030, the West has already adopted to EVs (not entirely). The EV giant Tesla has been grabbing headlines lately for its probable foray into the Indian market, albeit it remains a possibility, unless Tesla makes an official announcement on its venture. Meanwhile, another name that has emerged recently is the Fisker Inc., that announced about a new electric car dubbed ‘EMotion’ a little while back.
Interestingly, EMotion has been designed by Henrik Fisker, the man better known for his high-end luxury models in the James Bond movies. Besides, he has designed some of the most iconic luxury cars in the history. Picture Gallery – Top 9 Electric/Hybrid Cars in India
The EMotion, however, is the first model under his EV company, Fisker Inc. The revolutionary EV is a luxury model with a seemingly high range of 643km and top speed of 259km/h. What makes it stand apart competition is the 9-minute charging time. Yes, you read that right! The upcoming EV will reportedly charge in a snap of the finger. This indeed could be a threat to the other names in the EV world that take considerably longer to charge. Read – Government Plans To Shift To EVs By 2030
Henrik Fisker revealed details about the new model, ‘EMotion’ through a tweet on June 10, 2017 via his official twitter handle. Although, he did not divulge other details like the launch timeline, price and its autonomous capabilities, but EMotion seems like a serious threat to the likes of Tesla models.
As India readies to join the fight against pollution and climate change, we may witness influx of EVs in the Indian market that is yet to embrace green technology. Currently, the Indian market is dominated by the petrol-diesel powered vehicles. With a poor infrastructure and charging stations to support EVs, India still has a long way to go all electric.
