With a price tag of $29,900 Fisker Pear will be entry level

Fisker Automotive confirms that its second vehicle, the Pear, will go into production in 2024. Surprisingly, the Californian start-up already included a price tag. With $29,900 the compact SUV is set to be the most affordable in its class.

The Pear, which is short for Personal Electric Automotive Revolution, follows the already publicly unveiled Fisker Ocean (production: November 2022). Its maker Henrik Fisker claims that the vehicle can’t be categorized: “it won’t fit into any existing segment”. As a novelty, the front receives a wraparound windscreen.

Given its more compact size, the Pear will step in the ring with cars like the Hyundai Kona EV, Kia EV6, and Ford Mustang Mach-E. Compared to the price listings of those rivals, the Fisker is nothing short but $10,000 cheaper.

Since pears cannot ripen alone Fisker has partnered with Taiwanese supplier Foxconn, maker of Apple’s electronic devices, for production. The latter will build the small SUV in Ohio, in the Lordstown Motor’s plant that it has bought. The annual output is scheduled at 250,000 units. The factory must evolve into a hub for EV production. Next to the Pear Foxconn will build the all-electric pick-up Endurance on site.
