LOS ANGELES - Many TV viewers know him as “Jaime” on the HBO series, “Game of Thrones.”
But many of those fans might not know that Nikolaj Coster-Waldau travels the world as the United Nations Development Programme Goodwill Ambassador for climate change and other social issues.

Now, Coster-Waldau is teaming up with electric vehicle and advanced mobility products company Fisker to bring sustainable, affordable and premium mobility to market.
He will serve as a partner and sustainability adviser to Fisker chairman and chief executive officer Henrik Fisker in working toward a future with advanced, affordable, electric mobility serving as a model for the future of transportation.
Fisker and Coster-Waldau first connected on Twitter, discussing their passion for sustainability. The two are working toward helping Fisker Inc. fulfill as many of the United Nations’ sustainability goals as possible.
Fisker Inc. is working toward completion of its “affordable, all electric production-intent” SUV prototype. The company will unveil the all-electric SUV at the end of this year, and it will feature a range of approximately 275 to 300 miles.
The vehicle will also use recycled plastic from ocean debris, vegan leather, and a solar roof in its top-model spec.
Also, the vehicle will recycle waste generated during tire manufacturing. The vehicle will recycle that waste — which typically goes to landfills – for various interior applications.
Fisker Inc. says its long-term goal is the creation of a consumer platform that brings desirable, affordable and sustainable mobility to the mass market.
The company wants to enable a wider consumer base to drive its premium electric vehicles. To do that, Fisker is working on what it describes as a “revolutionary direct-to-consumer smart platform,” which it says might not include sales of its vehicles.
Fisker Inc. says it will announce details of its affordable, direct-to-consumer e-mobility platform later this year. That, according to the company, will break new barriers of entry to affordable, clean mobility “without onerous long-term contracts or expensive upkeep.”
“I am very excited to have Nikolaj participate in Fisker’s mission of binging the world’s most sustainable, affordable and desirable electric vehicles to mass market,” Fisker said in a news release. “I am looking forward to working with him on learning about and achieving U.N.’s sustainability goals”
“Mass vehicle electrification around the world will make an immense impact on the fight to combat climate change,” said Coster-Waldau, who has also partnered with Google in implementing its street-view tool to raise awareness and show the impacts of climate change in Greenland. He has also traveled to Maldives to report the effects of global warming. 
Coster-Waldau continued, “And although we’ve progressed, there’s still a long way to go. Henrik Fisker’s vision to help spark wider adoption of electric vehicles is unique, combining the most sustainable materials and manufacturing with his globally renowned design touch to bring emotionally appealing vehicles to the mass market. I’m delighted to embark on a journey to deliver more beautiful vehicles for a more beautiful world.”

Henrik Fisker teases possible open-sky option for upcoming electric SUV. Those are some fancy lookin' switches.

Will it be the hardtop equivalent of a landaulet, or will it be something closer to what the Jeep Wrangler offers?

If famed car designer Henrik Fisker isn't careful, he's liable to throw out so many teasers for his upcoming electric SUV that we'll be able to piece the thing together before its official unveiling. His latest finally takes us inside the EV ute, but it only focuses on a single piece of switchgear.

Henrik Fisker on Monday teased yet another feature of his forthcoming battery-electric crossover. The teaser, which came from Fisker's Twitter account, shows what appears to be part of the overhead switchgear inside the vehicle. There are the usual buttons for map lights, in addition to a toggle between the two that shows a typical sunroof control.

But Fisker is Fisker, and true to form, it appears that the toggle in question isn't for a typical sunroof at all. In his tweet, Fisker referred to it as a "California package!" He claims it can open all the way up without requiring a soft top, which the designer believes is a first for an SUV.

It's likely similar to the retractable roof on the new Jeep Wrangler, which can fully retract with the push of a button, offering an experience similar to removing hard roof panels by hand. But the Wrangler does it with fabric, whereas Fisker's SUV appears to do it with a regular ol' hard roof. By the looks of the button in question, it probably won't turn the vehicle into a proper convertible, but nevertheless it will be interesting to see how those hard panels contort to offer all that sunshine.

Fisker aims to get his electric SUV in buyers' hands in 2021, although a drivable prototype is believed to debut later this year. The designer claims the car will start under $40,000, with an electric range of about 300 miles. It'll have a solar roof, although it's unclear if this option will be available in conjunction with the roof mentioned here, because the solar-roof teaser shows what appears to be a norma ol' sunroof. Fisker also claims that the car's interior will make use of recycled materials for extra green cred. We should hopefully know more within a few months.

Fisker teases electric SUV's front end, promises recycled materials inside

Posted by Fisker Inc on Jul 25, 2019 11:27:22 AM

Henrik Fisker maintains the car's starting price will be below $40,000.

Henrik Fisker has taken the slow-burn approach to introducing his new electric SUV. We've seen a series of design teasers, most of which have come directly from the famed car designer's Twitter account, and what do you know, that's where the latest teaser has come from, too.

Henrik Fisker on Saturday posted a new picture of his upcoming EV SUV's front end to his Twitter account. While we've seen this part of the car in teasers before, they were limited to design mockups. This, however, appears to be its production-ready form. It's not much different from the previews, with some interesting angles on the hood and lower bumper. There's also a trick daytime running light design from LEDs in both the headlights and the bumper.

In addition to the picture, Fisker said in the tweet that his company hopes to make "the world's most sustainable vehicle." In addition to a starting price below $40,000, Fisker claims that the interior is mighty spacious and makes use of recycled materials. In a reply to a different person's tweet, Fisker said he's keeping the interior a secret until its proper unveiling, which is scheduled for later this year.

Thus far, we still don't know much about Fisker's new EV. We know there will be a turn signal in the D-pillar, as well as a solar roof, and based on the few teasers we've seen, it's clear that the SUV will rock a shape that's at least a little bit blocky. It's believed to have a range north of 300 miles, but any mention of range should wait until the EPA or WLTP has the chance to test it. Fisker hopes to have the car on sale in 2021.
