Fisker has been working on a more affordable version of its EVer formula under the codename "Project: Nina" for some time.

On the eve of the 2012 New York auto show, Fisker Automotive pulled the wraps off of the result of that project.

The Fisker Atlantic is notably smaller than the automaker's first vehicle, the Karma, and is scaled to compete with the BMW 3 Series and Audi A5.

A truncated rear end is both an aerodynamic element and a styling cue.

LED taillights allow the Atlantic to utilize very narrow rear light clusters.

While Henrik Fisker gave no specific numbers when discussing the Atlantic's price, he explained that the sedan would be competitive in its class. Signs point to $45,000 to $50,000 starting prices.

Despite its coupelike appearance, the Atlantic is actually a sedan, hiding its second set of doors in a very Hyundai Veloster-esque manner.

Fold-flat rear seats and a usable trunk are features that Fisker claims makes the Atlantic a "car for families."

“This car will be built. It will go into production,” said Fisker Automotive co-founder Henrik Fisker.

Asymmetrical trim on the leather seats is usually a "concept-only" touch. However, this is Fisker we're talking about, so it could make it into the production car.

Like the Karma, the Atlantic features and electric power train that is augmented by a gasoline generator when its 30 to 40 miles of EV range is drained.

We have few details on the specifics of this power train, only that a BMW-sourced gasoline engine will handle generator duties.
