I'm not sure how it is that these leaks always seem to surface through one of the numerous obscure eastern European sites, but here is the Fisker Atlantic (formerly known as Project Nina). Assuming that +Fisker Automotive manages to survive it's current monetary squeeze (something that is far from guaranteed) the Atlantic is intended to come in at about half the price or less of the $100K+ Karma.

It retains the same basic front engine/rear motor extended range EV layout of the Karma but with a BMW four cylinder sitting under the hood and presumably a lower motor output.

While the Karma has dubious build quality and reliability so far, it's hard to argue with Henrik Fisker's sense of style and that carries over to this new model. It retains many of the cues of its big brother but on a more reasonable scale and hopefully it tips the scales a bit lower than the Karma's 5,300 lbs as well.

The full story on the Atlantic should be revealed on Tuesday.
