There is not much to say about the design as we know this SUV very well as the American manufacturer has shown it several times over time. The brand highlights the great care taken to optimize aerodynamics with a view to efficiency. And speaking of efficiency, the car has specific tires made by Bridgestone developed to reduce consumption (20 or 22 inches).
The top of the range models (Extreme and One) have the Fisker SolarSky , i.e. panels solar panels on the roof which in the best possible conditions allow you to add 2. miles of autonomy per year (approx. 3. 200 km). There’s plenty of room inside for five to travel comfortably. The interior is made from sustainable and recycled materials. Very particular is the screen from 17, 1 inch vertical of the infotainment.

The estimated autonomy, according to the WLTP cycle, exceeds 630 km. All models with dual engines and all-wheel drive feature torque vectoring . Furthermore, to maximize efficiency, the rear engine does not start running except in case of need. No information, however, regarding recharging.
