Chippenham-based wheel manufacturer Dymag has been selected as the carbon wheel partner for renowned automotive designer Henrik Fisker’s new electric vehicle.
The company’s Boxstrom Carbon Rim, with a bespoke Fisker design forged aluminium spoke system, will be fitted to the EMotion Performance EV production cars.
The agreement was negotiated at the SEMA 2016 trade event where Dymag showcased its new wheel for the first time.
Chris Shelley, chief executive of Dymag, said: “Our new Boxstrom Carbon Rim design represents a big step forward in terms of performance, quality and serviceability and the collaboration with Fisker Inc is a major endorsement of the wheel’s capabilities and benefits.
“With major OEM partnerships now announced with both Fisker Inc and BAC Mono, it’s exciting times for Dymag as we continue to move forward through developing innovative wheel products that incorporate all the state-of-the-art design and technical expertise for which Dymag is renowned.”
Henrik Fisker, chief executive of California-based Fisker Inc, added: “At Fisker we push innovation as far as we can, so together with Dymag we have created an ultra-light, high quality production carbon wheel.
“The unique design with a carbon fibre rim will be showcased on the Fisker EMotion in mid-2017.”
