Fisker had been working on their comeback for some time and had got the industry talking when they first announced their EMotion would utilise solid-state batteries before later backing off, saying they’d resort to Li-ion cells by LG Chem. Now the story took another turn, this time on the executive level.
In a video interview with E For Electric, founder and designer Henrik Fisker brought back the solid-state solution, now saying the EMotion will use such an energy dense battery from the start.
The plan is to start testing what is to become a patented solution next year and to equip the Fisker luxury sedan with said technology from 2020 onwards. For now, the cells are still being tested in the lab, according to Fisker.
