BMW Designer Debuts Vegan Car to Rival Tesla

Henrik Fisker's new electric car EMotion comes with a vegan interior option, butterfly doors, and a battery that lasts more than 400 miles.

Luxury car company Fisker, Inc. unveiled its newest model, the EMotion, this week. The car—available for a base price of $129,00—features sensor-operated butterfly doors, a battery that lasts for more than 400 miles, and a fully vegan interior option. The Los Angeles-based company founder Henrik Fisker is known for designing several high-end vehicles, including the 2005-2017 Aston Martin Vantage and the 1999 BMW Z8. “The Electric Vehicle Renaissance has truly begun,” Fisker said, “one that must be met with both timeless, yet futuristic, form and hyper-intelligent function.” Fisker’s first vegan-certified vehicle, the Karma EcoChic model, debuted in 2010. In July, rival electric car company Tesla removed all leather—minus steering wheel wraps, which can be made vegan upon request—from all its car models and replaced it with synthetic vegan fibers. The EMotion is available for preorder and the car is slated to arrive in 2019.
