Fisker plans to assemble 250,000 units per year.
Foxconn has acquired Lordstown’s 6.2 million-square-foot vehicle manufacturing facility in Ohio.
Production is expected to begin in 2024.
This time, we actually get an idea of what Fisker’s “mobility device”, the PEAR, will look like. This small urban EV is aimed at the masses and given its size and starting price should do well.
The PEAR will be built by global electronics manufacturing giant Foxconn at their newly purchased facility in Ohio, once owned and briefly operated by Lordstown. The EV will introduce a new proprietary architecture that will eventually underpin two additional models that Fisker will introduce at a later date.
“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 added.
Production of the PEAR is said to begin in 2024. Once production ramps up, Fisker plans to build a minimum of 250,000 units per year.
