Fisker Drops More Details on Its Sub-$40K All-Electric SUV for 2021

Fisker electric SUV teaser image

He tweeted the news about the EV SUV on Monday after teasing about it over the weekend.

Fisker says that the model will be priced under $40,000, and it plans to launch the vehicle (and start deliveries) in the second half of 2021.

The crossover will come standard with a battery pack rated at over 80kWh, and a target driving range of around 480 kilometres (300 miles).

Fisker, therefore, could release several versions of their new SUV.

Days after Tesla unveiled its Model Y, the mass-market electric sports utility vehicle is already facing potential competition from an upstart company ran by famed auto designer Henrik Fisker who, like Elon Musk, aims to make affordable versions of emissions-free vehicles for the average consumer.

Fisker, which made its announcement in a press release with images of the new vehicle, said a drivable prototype would be available later this year. For the exterior design, for example, the traditional grille has been replaced with a small glass panel, behind which is a radar, on the upper section.

Interior design and materials will be modern, Fisker says, with a heads-up display to keep the driver's eyes on the road. Early deposits won't be taken until closer to the start of production: Fisker says it's now "finalizing the selection of a facility" to actually manufacture the SUV, though it has said that location will be somewhere in the US.

There will also be an extended length sunroof-style mechanism for an "open-air atmosphere. without compromising the rugged and safe structural integrity" of the vehicle.

First of three new EVs The new electric SUV is the first of three all-new, mass market vehicles. And expect that careful use of the word "enhanced" could correspond to the supplemental use of the solid-state battery tech Fisker has been cheerleading (and co-developing)-or ultracapacitors, perhaps. The EMotion will still be the first to use the Fisker Solid-State batteries, but it won't be the first vehicle to launch.

The other two more affordable models in the brand's upcoming lineup should follow the EMotion. Coincidentally, so is Tesla for the Model Y.
