Fisker EMotion EV and flexible solid-state battery debut at CES

Tesla Inc (TSLA) Model S Suddenly Has Major High-Performance EV Competition

Fisker said: "We've also made the seemingly impossible, possible with our scientists spearheading the breakthrough in Flexible Solid-State battery technology - which is the next generation in charging everything from your personal cell phone to enabling mass adoption of electric vehicles due to unprecedented ranges and lighting fast charge times". Fisker was still able to achieve an impressive 400 miles of range using a single charge while putting the power down to all four wheels.

It's built from carbon fibre and aluminium, and features elements designed around the LiDARs dotted at the front and rear of the auto.

"With the EMotion, we're introducing edgy, dramatic and emotionally-charged design/proportions complemented with technological innovation that moves us into the future", stated Henrik Fisker. The wheels are similarly huge: 24s as standard, on low rolling-resistance Pirellis.

At launch, the EMotion will have an estimated driving range of 644 kilometres (400 miles).

Let's talk more about that interior, as this is the first time we've gotten such a close look at it.

The vehicle is also set to be pretty smart, featuring a Level 4 autonomous driving system, which should allow the auto to self-drive without a human driver needing to be alert behind the wheel.

The car's cabin is covered in soft-touch leather, with a vegan-friendly interior optional.

The EMotion is available as a four-seater with electric seat adjustment for each passenger, or as a five-seater with a rear bench seat.

Inside, there are three screens streaming information to the driver - one curved infotainment screen atop the dashboard, one more iPad-like device in the central dashboard beneath it, and one in place of traditional dials. The glass roof features four zones of tint, each electrically adjustable to let in your desired amount of light. When on sale in the United States in 2019, it'll be priced from $129,900 (£96,061 at current exchange rates). The company was part of a joint venture with Nanotech working on graphene batteries, but that project fell apart and the lithium-ion batteries now being used have been sourced from LG Chem.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says the best protection against the virus is the hepatitis A vaccination. Anyone who used the restroom, purchased a fountain drink, fruit, or any hot food items run a risk for contamination.

Natalie Portman's flex at the Golden Globes was an all-timer
The best director category previously received backlash for its lack of female nominees. "That was 34 years ago", she said. The three highest-grossing films previous year were all carried by women.
