Fisker to debut Atlantic plug-in EV at NYC event tonight

News of Fisker's smaller second act left the 'Net with many questions. Tonight, we hope to get some answers.

We already know quite a bit about Fisker's follow-up to the Karma electric sports sedan. We know that it's called the Atlantic, that it's smaller than the Karma, and that it should be significantly less expensive--rumors put the MSRP at about $40,000 after a $7,500 federal tax credit. Heck, we even know what it looks like thanks to a batch of leaked photos.

However, there's a great deal that we don't know. There have been no power, range, or economy ratings leaked to go along with the photos. We don't have dimensions, so we can only guess based on those photos how much smaller a vehicle the Atlantic will be. Most importantly, as CNET's Martin LaMonica points out, we don't know how Fisker can afford to build the thing.


Tonight, on the eve of the 2012 New York International Auto Show, Fisker will officially debut the Atlantic at an event in Manhattan. CNET will be there to fill in the blanks surrounding the Fisker Atlantic with photos, videos, and insight.
