The Fisker PEAR EV will enter into production in 2024 and it is expected to have a base price of $29,900 before incentives.
“Both the Fisker and Foxconn teams are fully engaged and expect to build a minimum of 250,000 Fisker PEAR units a year at the plant after a ramp-up period,” they said in an official press statement.

The exterior design will feature new lighting technology and a wraparound front windscreen inspired by a glider plane glass canopy, enhancing frontal vision.”
