"Not another dorky looking EV"
Nope, just another slower than a snail one.
Probably not vaporware, but not profitable either. Once pure BEV (Tesla) becomes commonplace these high-price, low performance hybrids die out. It's not even green to own one, and as such they lose the status value, which is pretty much only value they have.
The thing I don't get about Fisker, is how they are using a young actor and a very young pop-star as their spokes-people. Last I checked the 18 to 30 years old demographic doesn't make enough money to by afford health-insurance, much less a $140,000.00 slow hybrid semi-exotic car.
I would think celebrities like George Clooney or Steven Tylor would be better spokes-persons, but then again, what do I know.
My guess is that having a young person will make the mid-life crises folks think they will be young again--even if they don't recognize the spokesperson as a celebrity.
My guess is that George Clooney or Steven Tylor aren't interested in a $140,000.00 slow hybrid semi-exotic car.
Nah, they would be on the Model S wait lust... ;)
I think you got it right the first time :-)
@Jerry, LOL, it was a bit of a Freudian slip! ;)
The Atlantic is now due out in 2012/5, at $60K (not $140K).http://www.leftlanenews.com/fisker-atlantic-delayed-until-2014-to-cost-6...
Correction, 2014/5, 22 months from now! Probably take a few more months to clear out their reservation list of 50 or 60 cars, too.
