Fisker EV to Get Side-Mounted Turn Signals
California-based Fisker Inc. says its upcoming electric crossover vehicle will feature turn signals on the side of the vehicle in addition to traditional front and rear signals.
A teaser image of the unnamed model shows the turn signal mounted high on the vehicle’s rear D-pillar. CEO Henrik Fisker says the design will enhance safety.
The profile image also highlights the EV’s rising beltline and illuminated pop-out door handles. Other styling cues include an expansive sunroof and flared wheel arches.
A previous sketch of the front of the vehicle featured a large air intake and distinctive headlights. Fisker plans to publicly unveil the $40,000 EV in December, but production isn’t due to start until 2021.
The historic plant has built—and is building—a lot of cars in its 70-year run of commercial vehicle production. Today, with the e-Golf and the GTE, it is making what are arguably the most-advanced Volkswagens out there.
Ford has made an accomplishment that will never be bested, never even be tied.
The future of e-mobility depends on collaboration. Automotive companies will need to build business models based on strengths and limitations to tap into the EV value chain and fully capitalize on the opportunities within the new EV ecosystem.
