The Fisker Atlantic prototype, developed under the codename Project Nina, has been officially unveiled at a special VIP event on the eve of the New York motor show.

This luxury extended-range four-door sedan, described by Fisker as a design prototype, is aimed at young families, and uses the same hybrid plug-in as the Fisker Karma.

A standout feature of the Atlantic is the rigid ‘spider' structure, which allows for a generous amount of rear headroom for a fastback car as well as maximizing the light entering the cabin while offering increased visibility to the car's surroundings. The Atlantic's long wheelbase provides extra legroom for rear passengers and increased luggage space in the trunk.

On the exterior, the Atlantic features an evolved version of the Fisker Karma signature grille with wide lines emphasizing the power dome on the good, while creases from the headlamps extend over the hood, serving to elongate the car's profile. ‘Eagle eye' headlamps allow for a better rear-view mirror presence.

To continue the theme of a sporting coupe, the rear door handles have been integrated into the C-pillars. The rear of the car is sleek with a spoiler lip on the trunk serve to improve aerodynamic performance. Advanced lighting technology means that the slim LED rear lamps split into two parts when the trunk opens.

Henrik Fisker, co-founder, Executive Chairman, and Design Director of Fisker Automotive said, "We are exceptionally proud of the Atlantic design prototype, and believe we have created another groundbreaking car that looks and will drive like nothing else on the road in this class."
