Fisker, the electric vehicle manufacturer, has revealed its entry into the competitive affordable EV market with the unveiling of the Pear. With Tesla’s upcoming next-gen platform and Volkswagen’s ID.2, Fisker aims to make the electric vehicle segment even more intriguing.
The name “Pear” is an acronym for “Personal Electric Automotive Revolution,” as stated by CEO Henrik Fisker. The vehicle will be built on the company’s SLV-1 platform and employ the innovative Steel++ development process, which reduces the number of parts by 35% compared to other electric cars in its class, although specific details about the Steel++ process were not provided.
The Pear boasts a range of clever features, including the ability to seat six passengers with a variant featuring a front bench seat. It also includes a “Houdini Trunk,” a retractable lift gate that facilitates easy loading and unloading in tight spaces. Additionally, the vehicle has a front trunk or “Froot,” adding a playful touch to its features.
Designed by Henrik Fisker, the Pear exhibits his signature flourishes despite its appealing starting price of $29,900 before federal tax incentives. It comes equipped with a wraparound windshield, sculptural exterior design, and futuristic LED lighting, making it an attractive option in the sub-$30,000 price range. The Pear also offers “Lounge Mode,” allowing owners to adjust the seats for maximum comfort.
However, eager buyers will have to wait for the Pear, as it is expected to be available from mid-2025, around the same time Volkswagen is slated to release the ID.2 and Tesla’s next-gen car from Gigafactory Mexico is likely to debut.
