Electric vehicle startup Fisker has released powertrain details of its upcoming, entry-level crossover, while also previewing its interior.
Described as a “sporty crossover”, the Fisker Pear will be available in single-motor rear-wheel drive and dual-motor all-wheel drive configurations with “four levels of option packages”.
There will also be two battery packs available, with the larger ‘Hyper Range’ pack claimed to have a target range of 310 miles (498.9km).
Set to be priced from below $US29,990 ($A41,771), the Fisker Pear will be fully revealed in the second half of 2023 and enter production at Foxconn’s newly-acquired plant in Ohio in 2024.
Fisker claims it has already taken a total of 3200 reservations for the Pear, with the larger Ocean SUV now surpassing 50,000 reservations.
Development of the Pear is already underway according to Fisker, with prototype testing expected to begin toward the end of 2022.
There doesn’t appear to be an instrument cluster or a head-up display in front of the driver.
Previous teaser images have shown the Pear will have four doors, pop-out door handles and digital side mirrors, while up front it’ll have slim headlights and an illuminated ‘Pear’ wordmark.
Fisker has confirmed the Pear will come with what’s called a ‘SolarSky panoramic roof’ which incorporates solar panels into the roof, and will also have a ‘Houdini trunk’.
The functionality of this latter feature is still a little unclear but Fisker says it is “an alternative to traditional rear cargo hatches”.
Fisker has previously indicated the Pear is around 4500mm long (similar to the Volkswagen Tiguan) and has room for five people.
It’ll be built on a new proprietary architecture, which will underpin the two additional Fisker models set to follow the Pear.
“The Pear will be a revolutionary electric vehicle that won’t fit into any existing segment,” claimed Fisker chairman and CEO Henrik Fisker.
“The exterior design will feature new lighting technology and a wraparound front windscreen inspired by a glider plane glass canopy, enhancing frontal vision.”
While Fisker has been releasing more teaser images of the Pear and upcoming Project Ronin four-door convertible flagship, the larger Ocean SUV will be the first cab off the rank for the startup.
Currently, Magna-Steyr is gearing up to begin production of the Fisker Ocean from November 17, 2022 at a carbon-neutral factory in Graz, Austria.
The Ocean starts at $US37,499 ($A52,229) before federal and state tax credits in the US.
Fisker has confirmed it will produce the Ocean in right-hand drive as it’ll be sold in Europe and the UK, though it has yet to officially confirm Australian launch plans.
