Fisker is Now Taking Orders for its New EV!

  • Last week, the firm began taking reservations for the Pear model.
  • Foxconn, the partner, plans to begin manufacturing in late 2023.

Fisker Inc. received over 1,500 bookings in only a few days for its second electric car, which has yet to be seen and will not be delivered until 2024, according to CEO Henrik Fisker.

Customers have already placed deposits for the Pear model, which will start at around $30,000 in the United States, in part because battery suppliers have been burned by vehicle makers making excessively high sales estimates for early plug-in models.

In an interview in London on Wednesday, Fisker stated:

Normally, a car firm undertakes due diligence on a supplier. Now, the battery manufacturers are performing due diligence on carmakers, as well as startups, saying, ‘Hold on a minute, we need to see the firm model, we need to see the car, we need to trust in you.’

CEO Henrik Fisker, who is 58 years old, launched his first firm in 2007.

At a time when the lone Tesla model on the market was the Roadster, Fisker Automotive began releasing its lone sports car, the Karma. After its main battery source went insolvent in late 2013, Fisker Automotive filed for bankruptcy.

Fisker Inc. was founded in 2016 by the creator of BMW and Aston Martin premium automobiles, and it went public in 2020 through a merger with a SPAC.

More than 32,000 bookings have been placed for the new company’s first electric car, the Ocean Sport Utility Vehicle, which is set to go into production in November.

Henrik Fisker was stopping over in London on his way to Graz, Austria, where Magna Steyr, his manufacturing partner, has 47 Ocean prototypes in different phases of pre-production, according to him. The SUVs will be produced in around 45,000 units next year, according to the firms.

Fisker anticipates at least 50,000 orders before the end of the year.

The Pear will be manufactured in Ohio by Foxconn Technology Group, and the batteries will be purchased from a US facility, according to Fisker.
