Fisker To Develop Two New Upmarket EVs In The UK

by 9SIX

Fisker has yet to even show the production variant of its Ocean SUV to the world and has already committed to developing two new EVs in the UK.

These two new models will hit the market after the Ocean and the PEAR (Personal Electric Automotive Revolution) and will be brought to life through the newly-established Fisker Magic Works team. Whereas the Ocean and PEAR will be affordable, high-volume EVs, the two new models will be much more expensive, Henrik Fisker recently told Auto Express.

“They’re 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,” the company’s chief executive said. “We’re looking at a very extreme vehicle so one will be over $100,000 (£73,500) and the other will be below, and they will be two very different vehicles. They will both be serious production vehicles and not low volume handmade – they will still be serious production but not as high volume, of course, as the Ocean and the Pear.”

Leading the Fisker Magic Works team is former Aston Martin engineer David King, who has previously worked on the DB7 and for the Q by Aston Martin department.

No other details about these models are known, although Fisker said it is unlikely they will be manufactured in the UK, even though they are being developed there.

Fisker is currently working with Magna to prepare the Ocean for production, which is expected to commence in late 2022. The Ocean will hit the U.S. priced from $37,500 before federal EV tax credits and 12 months after its arrival, will be followed by the PEAR. Pricing for this model is slated to begin at less than $30,000 and it will be produced with the help of Foxconn.
