The electric vehicle maker Fisker confirmed on Thursday that will start the production of PEAR model at Foxconn factory in Ohio. The company expects to build a minimum of 250,000 PEAR vehicles a year once the plant ramps up production. Fisker’s second model (after the OCEAN) has an expected base price below $29,900.
“The PEAR will be a revolutionary electric vehicle that won’t fit into any existing segment. The exterior design will feature new lighting technology and a wraparound front windscreen inspired by a glider plane glass canopy, enhancing frontal vision,” Fisker Chairman and CEO Henrik Fisker said, adding that he plans to visit the factory with a team of engineers on Friday, May 13, 2022.
“Our engineering group is working on new features and high-tech solutions for the PEAR that will change how we use and enjoy a vehicle in the city,” Fisker said.
The Fisker PEAR follows the company’s first vehicle, the Fisker Ocean, which starts production in Austria on Nov. 17, 2022. The Fisker PEAR will have an expected base price below $29,900 before incentives. Fisker has designed and engineered the vehicle to reduce parts for rapid, simplified manufacturing. The Fisker PEAR will be built on a new proprietary architecture. This new platform will underpin two additional models that Fisker will introduce at a later date.
