Today brings our first look at the vehicle, which we now know will be an all-electric SUV with a standard range near 300 miles. In its announcement of the vehicle, Fisker said that the low-volume $129,900 EMotion flagship sedan, which it had originally planned to launch in 2019, will arrive "as patented Fisker Solid-State Battery technology becomes ready for vehicle application and commercialization". It'll be priced from under $40,000, the automaker says, when it goes on sale in the second half of 2021, with Fisker intending to sell direct to customers. Fisker Inc is now finalising the selection of a facility, located in the U.S., to produce the all-electric SUV.

Fisker is jumping into the electric-crossover fray, announcing Monday plans for a new model that will have a 300-mile driving range and a starting price below $40,000. The company says more details will be released closer to launch. For the exterior design, for example, the traditional grille has been replaced with a small glass panel, behind which is a radar, on the upper section.

Fisker hints at the presence of a targa-style removable roof section, stating that "with the touch of a button, an extended open-air atmosphere will be made possible without compromising the rugged and safe structural integrity of an SUV". Reservations for the vehicle will be available closer to the production date. Fisker promises a spacious interior with a large heads-up display and a dash with an intuitive user interface.

"We're now excited to be introducing a vehicle that truly reinvents the SUV".

"While other manufacturers have introduced attractive, high-performance electric cars with high price tags, the real race is about who can deliver a truly high-volume, affordable, yet desirable [model]", Fisker said in a statement.

Last fall, Henrik Fisker told us he was designing a radical, more affordable Tesla fighter. "While other manufacturers have introduced handsome, high-performance electric cars with high price tags, the real race is about who can deliver a truly high-volume, affordable, yet desirable EV - produced through a unique, profitable business model".
