Default Great Fisker Atlantic event!

Cool event (Fisker had three Karmas parked in front of the venue). Great buzz, lots of positive talk by media folks. Overall, very upbeat! Some press even stormed the stage to sit in the Atlantic!

To answer some of your questions, the interior is still 2+2 and the design is more adventurous than the Karma. The Atlantic has "much more" interior room than the Karma, including substantially more leg room in the rear (you can put your feet underneath seats in front, more headroom too). The Command Center is driver oriented (angled towards driver's seat), and there are more pronounced curves in the interior. The car still sits on 22's! Although the standard wheels will be 20s'... its also about 8-9 inches shorter than the Karma and sits 3 inches higher...I heard Henrik say it will be a steel frame, so maybe weight may not be as light as we had hoped... but details still TBD.

If you guys want to see more of the interior, check out the press B-roll below - you'll see towards the end, some pretty full shots of the interior.

SoCalGuy, thanks for the comments and video.

Press stormed the stage! They must have snapped pictures. Did you storm too? Did you see a center battery tunnel like Karma?

I didn't, as I was in the middle of a conversation - there literally were dozens of reporters/photographers that hopped up, a few sat inside the car until they were all escorted off the stage.

There is a battery tunnel down the middle (you can see it in the B-roll footage too), so its 2+2 seating for now.[hr]
Some screencaps from the Fisker footage and some press photos:

I also put together this side by side comparison of the Karma and the Atlantic (scaled using the wheels). The Atlantic shot is slightly off center from head on side view, but close enough.

Awesome comparison. Both cars are beautiful in their own way. The Atlantic may actually look more aggressive, in an Aston Martin sort of way.

Hello Elon, are you watching?

I guess I prefer the Atlantic. Though some of the styling is a bit pushed too far for me (side creases too sharp and "plumbers crack" headrests), I like the proportions better. The design seems more sensible: Better positioning of the touch screen. Better trunk lid design. Fold down rear seats. Better interior space versus exterior size.

Of course some of this depends heavily on their new drive train. I think the Karma drive train is too bulky for the performance they're able to get out of it. Ultimately the Atlantic may end up being the better car.

Something occurs to me. Are the headrests intended to emulate the two pillars in the Fisker logo?[hr]

"Secrets" just means it's not done yet. After starting with Quantum for the Karma, this is an area where Fisker still needs to develop more expertise.

Just in case you missed last nights Fisker Atlantic reveal in New York City. You can watch the webcast here: http://live.fiskerautomotive.com/ . We will have it on Fisker's Youtube channel soon.

Lovely car - great design job. Hopefully not too much worst in terms of performance - would be a shame. Anyone having info about technical specs?
