Fisker to release two more electric cars by 2025
Fisker is planning two more electric models by 2025, following the Ocean electric SUV and the Pear developed together with Foxconn. However, according to company founder Henrik Fisker, these vehicles will be positioned significantly above the Ocean.
As Henrik Fisker recently announced, the two new models will be developed in the UK. Both are intended for series production, but presumably not in Britain and not in such large volumes as the Ocean and Pear. In addition, both new models will be significantly more expensive than the first two. Fisker is talking about a price over $100,000 for one of the new models, the other is to be below that mark.
The announcement of four BEV models by 2025 is not really new, it dates back to July 2020, when Fisker held out the prospect of a sports crossover derived from the Ocean electric SUV, an electric sedan based on the EMotion concept and a lifestyle pickup in addition to this model. In February 2021, however, the Project Pear was announced as a “new type” of electric car that would make it five model series.
Either Fisker will combine the Ocean and the sports crossover derived from it, or a series will come later – or not at all. Fisker told Auto Express: “We are on full speed to deliver four distinct vehicle lines by 2025, driving innovation forward and pushing radical new ideas into the global car market.”
According to the Danish-born Fisker who co-founded the US company with founded his wife Geeta Gupta-Fisker, the two new models will be “very different”. “They’re going to go in in a segment which I would say maybe one exists a little bit but it’ll be a twist on it and the other one doesn’t exist at all,” Fisker said in his usual nebulous manner.
Fisker has not yet named possible manufacturing partners – the Ocean is to be built by Magna, the Pear by Foxconn. Although both cars are to be developed in the UK by a team led by former Aston Martin engineer David King, Fisker described the chance of manufacturing on the island as “very slim”.
