This time around, Fisker has a new car, the EMotion, a new source of batteries, Fisker Nanotech, and a familiar name on the badge: Fisker, Inc. Fisker is promising to introduce the Fisker EMotion by the end of 2017, delivering a car that he says "will spearhead a revolution in electric cars that will disrupt the electric vehicle market and change the world."

Elon Musk might suggest he's already done that with Tesla, but Fisker says that it is the use of graphene in its batteries that will give the EMotion groundbreaking advantages over Tesla and other EV makers.
Fisker Nanotech will make the graphene-based battery cells for the EMotion, with a large, proven manufacturer assembling those cells into reliable, safe battery packs that Fisker Inc. will install in the cars.

The lesson learned from Fisker Automotive's failure was the need for an EV maker to not depend on outside suppliers for its critical batteries, Fisker said. "You have to control the battery technology," he said.
ES changed my life (for the waaaaay better).
