Fisker Inc.’s Sub-$40K USD All-Electric SUV for 2021
Henrik Fisker may have lost Fisker Karma in bankruptcy, but he hasn’t lost his name or creative juices. Last fall, the Danish designer told us he was designing a radical, more affordable Tesla fighter. Today we have our very first look at his latest creation—an all-electric SUV with a standard range near 300-miles (483-km) that will be priced below $40,000 USD when it rolls out in the second half of 2021.
Up front the wide SUV sports a high-mounted radar system that is flanked by sleek LED headlights above curved fog lights below. Fisker promises a spacious interior with a large heads-up display and a dash with an intuitive user interface. We’d be happy if it was Android Auto and Apple CarPlay friendly too. The sculpted SUV will be offered with all-wheel drive with two electric motors, one in the front and one at the rear. Power will be supplied by an enhanced 80 kWh lithium-ion battery pack.
The radical new Fisker Inc. SUV is the first in a planned future lineup of three affordable all-electric vehicles. The California-based company introduced the Fisker EMotion luxury electric sedan (shown above) at CES in 2018. Fisker says its low-volume flagship model will be introduced to the market after the under $40,000 USD SUV is available. The EMotion will reportedly use Fisker Solid-State Battery technology, which the company claims, will be able to “provide more than 500 miles (805 km) of range with a single, quick charge.”
More details about the affordable SUV will be revealed closer to the vehicle’s launch, but expect to see a drivable prototype by the end this year. Fisker Inc. will begin accepting deposits closer to the start of production at a yet to be named facility located in the U.S.
