TEASER PHOTO: Fisker Surf shooting brake concept

By | 20110907

Pictured here is an outline of the all new Fisker Surf shooting brake concept, based on the Karma, and a likely recipient of the turbocharged 4-cylinder engines that Fisker will now be supplied with by BMW.




Shortly before the revealing of this teaser, it was reported that Fisker was bringing a shooting brake model to the Frankfurt Motor Show to address cargo space problems that were reported to Fisker during customer feedback sessions. This Surf will debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show, so despite the teaser picture’s lack of door outlines, it can be safely assumed that this is a 5-door “shooting brake” concept, which means it’s a Karma wagon.


Like the Karma, the Fisker Surf will be an electric vehicle with extended range capabilities, or an EVer, likely sporting the same electric motor as the Karma with a 4 cylinder turbocharged range-extender provided by BMW. The company promises that the Surf’s combination of “Uncompromised Responsible Luxury” and its design will wow potential customers. What we can expect and gather from this outline is that it will be slightly higher than the Karma, but it will still be low-slung with huge rims designed right into the package, just as the Karma is.


The Surf is set to be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show on September 13th, and considering the date of unveiling, we’re assuming that it has jumped ahead of the long-awaited Fisker Nina in the company’s product cycle. For those who don’t remember, the Fisker Nina is a mid-sized sedan concept that has yet to be unveiled, but that a select few, including USA Vice President Joe Biden has seen and referred to as “looking like a four-door Ferrari”. Maybe the extra sales push from the Surf will be able to push the Nina into production, but time will tell if Fisker can get their projects off the ground quick enough, considering they still seem to be having trouble pushing the Karma out the doors.
