When I first laid my eyes on the new Fisker Atlantic design prototype, it simply took my breath away. I personally feel, that this is the most promosing four door coupe to date among all in the same category, including the likes of Audi and Mercedes Benz. The Atlantic is presented at a special event before its world premiere at the New York Auto Show on 4 April 12.

The Atlantic will be Fisker’s first mainstream and mass production vehicle, and is aimed at young families who are looking for “an impactful, high-end vehicle while making a positive statement about responsibilities". According to reports, the production version will not look different from the prototype.

The Atlantic will be powered by a 2.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine from BMW. As a plug-in hybrid, the sleek looking sedan allows the driver to switch manually or automatically between electric and gasoline driving modes. The Atlantic has a rear-wheel drive setup but offers all-wheel-drive configuration as an option.

Fisker has yet to announce the dimensions of the car but the Atlantic is said to be comparable in size to the Audi A5 Sportback. “We are exceptionally proud of the Atlantic design prototype, and believe we have created another groundbreaking car that looks and will drive like nothing else on the road in this class,” commented Henrik Fisker, Executive Chairman and Design Director of Fisker. Fisker is an American automaker based in Anaheim, California.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.

The larger sibling, the Fisker Karma, is quite a common sight in USA where I holidayed. This smaller Atlantic brother, will be cheaper, and more compact. But the Karma is already rather small and compact on the inside. The Atlantic will be even smaller =(
