Fisker Pear EV Launch Delayed Until 2025, Affordable Pricing Confirmed
Fisker has announced a delay in the production of their 2024 Fisker Pear EV, pushing its release to the first half of 2025. The news was revealed by CEO Henrik Fisker during the Financial Times Future of the Car conference. In his statement, he also disclosed that the Pear EV will have a competitive price tag, with an MSRP of $29,900 when it becomes available for sale in the United States.
During the Financial Times event, Fisker's CEO discussed their upcoming second model, which will be available in two battery variants. One variant will target city-based customers, offering a range of 100-150 miles, while the other variant will have over 300 miles of range. Fisker expressed the belief that in two years, people will realize they don't require a larger range, especially if they have a second car. However, he acknowledged that the market currently demands longer ranges for competitiveness. With the Pear model, Fisker aims to cater to both preferences by offering a smaller battery for urban dwellers who may need shorter ranges and a long-range option to meet present market demands.
The CEO revealed that the postponed 2024 Fisker Pear will feature a dedicated steel chassis with 25 percent fewer components compared to a conventional platform. The interior will embrace a minimalistic design, devoid of moving parts such as a traditional center console or glove compartment. Henrik Fisker explained, "We don't have the typical center console that you can open up and the typical glove compartment, and all these types of things." Fisker further shared that over 6,000 reservations have already been placed for the Pear EV model.
