Henrik Fisker wants to forget all about its past failures and start a new page. He launched a new company, Fisker Inc. last year, previously known as Fisker Automotive.

Fisker Automotive is related to what some call the biggest failure in the history of electric cars. In 2011 they announced the Fisker Karma, a $108,000 electric car, that turned out to have a pretty bad karma... The car was recalled multiple times due to many issues and the entire fiasco ended with the company filing for bankruptcy.

Given the history, Fisker's decision to come back to the electric car market is brave. Last year, Fisker announced that they are working on a new electric car - EMotion.

Now, the company has announced that the car is almost ready and that they will unveil it on August 17th.

The EMotion should be a direct competitior to Tesla's Model S, and it is expected that the car will have a similar price. The car should have a top speed of 161 mph and a range of 400 miles, and the camera and sensor hardware needed for self-driving capability.

Henrik Fisker said that the EMotion will have carbon and aluminum structure that results in 20% lighter structure than other cars its size.

The official announcement is set for August 17th, but we will hear more about the car in the upcoming months.
