Fisker's sexy EMotion EV debuts at CES 2018

Fisker's sexy EMotion EV debuts at CES 2018

Revealed at the Consumer Electronics Show 2018 in Las Vegas, the electric auto has been tipped for a range of 400 miles from a single charge and a top speed of 161mph, enough to bother Tesla's finest machines.

Fisker teased the reveal of the EMotion in recent days, showing off the butterfly doors, and giving us a glimpse of the interior. Fisker was still able to achieve an impressive 400 miles of range using a single charge while putting the power down to all four wheels.

As you can see, the exterior design hasn't changed much from the original renderings that Fisker released. Now, we have a lot more details about the vehicle, though Fisker is still keeping some of his company's tricks under his hat. The Fisker Emotion brings with it level 4 autonomous driving and what Fisker calls the "interior of the future". The wheels are similarly huge: 24s as standard, on low rolling-resistance Pirellis.

Libya Rescues 279 Migrants at Sea, but 100 More Are Feared Dead
The coast guard said there was no confirmation of Libyan authorities' statement that at least 25 migrants had died. According to survivors, and a press release by Libya's Coast Guard, about 100 people on board remained missing.

Both the front and rear doors feature butterfly designs, that when open really showcase a deceptively roomy interior.

Tesla looks to have a major electric auto rival on the horizon, as Fisker has revealed its luxury EMotion electric vehicle.

We must first discuss the looks. It's very luxurious, combining the comfort of leather with the convenience of modern infotainment technology.

Anushka Is Now Returning To India, This Is How Dhawan's Wife Reacted!
It was on January 1 that Shah Rukh Khan and Aanand L Rai finally revealed the title of their much-anticipated film. Anushka was accompanying Virat to Cape Town, where the Indian cricket team is now playing against South Africa.

In addition to the premium leather interior shown on the reveal auto, Fisker will join the growing number of luxury vehicle makers offering a vegan-friendly interior option. The interior of the auto offers individually designed seats and has "tailor-made luxury touches". Fisker promised the auto would provide entertainment when operating in autonomous mode, and that comes in the form of three driver-oriented screens, with a curved center screen, as well as an optional 27-inch rear curved screen for the Chauffeur Edition EMotion.

Tech wise, the EMotion has a party trick up its sleeve - a four-zone electrically adjustable tinted roof, while the vehicle itself is approximately the same size as a Model S, measuring in at 16 feet long and five feet high. Production of the EMotion is expected to begin toward the end of 2019, with pricing starting just under $130,000. The company is now taking reservations for $2,000 at its website.

There is word however, on Fisker's other little project: a new solid-state battery.

WhatsApp brings quick switch to video call in the latest beta update
In 2016, WhatsApp added video call functionality to their app but there was no update to that option until now. This essentially means, users will soon be able to post Instagram Stories directly as WhatsApp Stories .

Instead of rushing an incomplete product to launch, Fisker decided that it was best to use a tried and true technology-lithium ion batteries.
