Fisker Emotion revealed at CES with 400-mile range Behold: the 161mph Fisker EMotion

The only performance statistic is the car's top speed of 161mph, although it's expected that the 400-mile-range EV, which also has four-wheel drive and shares similar dimensions to the Tesla Model S, will closely match Elon Musk's first four-door model for other performance statistics.

We've been following Henrik Fisker's new company closely, and have taken a keen interest not just in his Fisker EMotion luxury electric sedan, but also in the battery and charging technology the company's been developing.

Fisker (yes, that Fisker) is coming to CES 2018 with a new electric auto called the EMotion. The Fisker Emotion brings with it level 4 autonomous driving and what Fisker calls the "interior of the future".

The tech for autonomous driving crammed inside the vehicle includes patented S3 solid-state LiDAR sensors designed for the best possible performance. The wheels are similarly huge: 24s as standard, on low rolling-resistance Pirellis. The butterfly doors feature flush handles, and they open and close with the help of smartphone control. The range is thanks to a new battery with breakthrough tech that can charge as quickly as one minute. It's very luxurious, combining the comfort of leather with the convenience of modern infotainment technology.

In addition to the premium leather interior shown on the reveal vehicle, Fisker will join the growing number of luxury auto makers offering a vegan-friendly interior option.

Fisker says the EMotion will be built in the US and that it will announce its factory location later this year. There's also the option of a 27in curved screen in the rear, available on upcoming Chauffeur Edition cars. The roof, meanwhile, features a large piece of electrochromic glass that offers four-zone adjustability.

The Fisker EMotion is set to launch by the end of 2019, with a starting price of $129,000.

There is word however, on Fisker's other little project: a new solid-state battery. Fisker is using new battery tech that It claims will provide a fast charge and a driving range of 400 miles per charge. 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.
