Fisker Previews Surf Concept

We know that Fisker has some ambitious plans to expand well beyond its Karma range-extending sedan, and it's officially previewed its second vehicle. Called the "Surf," the new car will be a shooting brake and should feature similar technology to the Karma.

Outside of releasing the teaser picture above—which makes the car look rather bloated, if you ask me—Fisker hasn't provided much detail on its new concept. Between the name and obvious surfboard mounted up top, it's clear the concept is inspired by the beach, though we don't know if that inspiration extends to the styling of the car (hybrid woodie, anyone?) or just the overall green, Mother Earth-hugging nature of a series hybrid.

In an indication that it may actually use some innovative, surf-inspired styling, Fisker said in a statement: "The Fisker Surf delivers a bold new twist and is sure to 'wow' global audiences with its combination of uncompromised responsible luxury and head turning design."

If Fisker plans to actually sell any Surf vehicles to wave junkies not named "Hamilton" or "McConaughey," it may need to cut the 403-hp electric motor + 260-hp range-extending engine of the Karma sedan for something a little smaller, though past reports indicate that the car will feature the same powertrain as the $96,000 Karma.

We'll find out more when the Frankfurt Motor Show commences next week.
