Fisker reveals affordable all-electric SUV

0

Fisker has released early details of a new all-electric SUV design, priced below US$40,000 and set to launch in the second half of 2021.

Available in four-wheel drive with two electric motors – one at the front and one at the rear – the all-electric SUV will come with a standard extended range, targeted at approximately 300 miles (483km). This, Fisker claims, is made possible by an enhanced 80kWh+ lithium-ion battery pack. More details of the battery will be released closer to launch.

Fisker is currently finalizing the selection of a facility, within the USA, to produce the SUV. The company is currently developing a larger line-up of affordable, luxury electric vehicles – with the SUV the first to launch.

The previously unveiled Fisker EMotion sedan, the brand’s low-volume flagship model, will now be introduced to the market after the affordable model becomes available.

“Our team set out on a mission to create an affordable EV that’s more exciting and emotion-stirring than what the market has been offering,” said chairman and CEO Henrik Fisker.

“We’re now excited to be introducing a vehicle that truly reinvents the SUV. At an affordable price point, starting below US$40,000, we’re delivering a desirable, luxuriously rugged and green vehicle – complete with unique new experiences and technologies – that’s accessible to people across the USA and the world.
