The Fisker PEAR was Seen Testing Out on the Road

The Fisker PEAR will be smaller and more affordable than the Fisker Ocean.

  • The PEAR will be a smaller electric SUV that should start under $30,000 in the US.

  • Despite the test car’s camouflage, its silhouette is easy to determine.

  • According to the company, the PEAR could have a range of over 310 miles (499 kilometres)

A prototype version of the Fisker PEAR was seen testing on the road ahead of its official launch in time for the 2024 model year.

Captured in a short video posted on Youtube by Fiskerati, the PEAR appears to look similar to the Ocean despite its smaller dimensions.

From what can be seen, the PEAR (meaning Personal Electric Automotive Revolution) will feature a slightly arched roofline that drops towards the rear, where it terminates in an upright liftgate.

A distinctive C pillar and rear quarter window could be distinctive elements for this model as they are on the larger Ocean.

According to Fisker, the PEAR will be available with two battery options, the larger and more expensive of the two allowing a total range of over 310 miles (499 kilometres).

The smaller battery should make it possible for the company to price the entry-level PEAR under $30,000 in the United States, which would make it one of the most affordable electric vehicles on the market.

In Europe, Fisker aims to compete directly against the Volkswagen ID.3 electric hatchback with this model, despite the PEAR looking more like a crossover than the VW.

Since Fisker doesn’t own a factory, it has to use subcontractors to build its vehicles under contract. This is why the PEAR will not be made alongside the Ocean in Austria but rather in Ohio.

Indeed, the smaller of the brand’s SUVs will be manufactured by the Foxconn-run factory in Lordstown, Ohio that currently builds the Endurance electric pickup for Lordstown Motors.

Fisker’s production targets for the PEAR are high since the company expects to build 250,000 units of this model alone by the middle of 2024, which could help it reach its brand target of 1 million units per year in 2027.
