Fisker ‘spartner Foxconn has completed its acquisition of a 6.2 million sq-ft manufacturing facility in Ohio. They Plan to build 250,000 Fisker PEARs a year – once production ramps up around 2024.
The Fisker PEAR (Personal Electric Automotive Revolution) will be their entry-level all-electric offering, pricing will start at $29,900. This is also their second vehicle. The larger Fisker Ocean starts production in Austria on Nov. 17, 2022. The Fisker PEAR will be built on a new proprietary architecture.

“The PEAR will be a revolutionary electric vehicle that won’t fit into any existing segment. The exterior design will feature new lighting technology and a wraparound front windscreen inspired by a glider plane glass canopy, enhancing frontal vision. Fisker Chairman and CEO Henrik Fisker said. Our engineering group is working on new features and high-tech solutions for the PEAR that will change how we use and enjoy a vehicle in the city.”Fisker Chairman and CEO Henrik Fisker
