2012 Fisker Atlantic

After recently releasing the Fisker Karma, a $100,000+ plug-in hybrid sports car, the automaker returns with the Atlantic, a smaller and more affordable younger brother to the Karma. The Atlantic operates on a battery engine that is fueled by a 240 horsepower, BMW-sourced turbocharged engine. That said, the gasoline engine acts more as a generator sending energy to the batteries rather than as a tool to power the vehicle on the road. Owner Henry Fisker stressed the importance of an electric engine capable of extended range travel, although many specifics about what this range is, have yet to be seen. At this point, a release date and price are unknown for the Atlantic, but sources indicate consumers can expect to see them on the road within the next two years.
