Henrik Fisker has released the first teaser image of a new electric SUV with “near 300 miles” of driving range and a price tag of under $40,000.
This new electric SUV is the second vehicle declared by Fisker Inc.. And is set to launch on the marketplace in the second half of 2021. This means it will be the first car to be provided by the business, as the already declared EMotion electric luxury sedan was pushed back from its first late-2019 launch date.
Fisker stated that the Emotion will be launched following the mass-market electric SUV, partly because the former’s solid-state battery pack technology isn’t yet ready for a market release.
The new Fisker SUV remains unnamed at this point but the company did release a few details, namely a 80kWh battery pack and the 300-mile driving range, both of which is available on the base model. If Fisker delivers on its promise, it is going to place its SUV over the base Tesla Model Y, which is expected to provide around 220 to 230 kilometers of range in its cheapest ‘Standard Range’ version.
Other details include all-wheel drive as standard, courtesy of the two electric motors, one mounted on each axle, in addition to some sort of removable roof system. The roofing system will be operated “with the touch of a button, an protracted open-air setting will be made possible without compromising the rugged and safe structural integrity of an SUV”, according to the firm.
The new electric SUV will be produced in the USA, with Henrik Fisker stating they are currently looking at multiple sites. Development work on prototypes will start towards the end of the year.
