We're aware range-extending duties for Project Nina will be the task of BMW's turbo'd four-cylinder engine but a new potential tie between Fisker Automotive and BMW has come to light.

Auto Express reports that the Fisker Nina sedan, when it debuts in 2013, will closely copy the exterior dimensions of the 2011 BMW 5 Series (length: 192.9 inches; width: 73.2 inches; height: 57.6 inches), while retailing for approximately the same price as a top-level BMW 3 Series.

Figure £40,000 ($62,468 U.S. at today's exchange rate) over in the UK, or somewhere around $45,000 for the Nina here in the States. That's a bit more expensive than the "I can't believe it's only going to be $40,000" uttered by Vice President Joe Biden back in October of 2009, but still relatively reasonable given the Nina's advanced technologies, including its BMW-sourced engine and dual powertrain setup.
