The current CEO of Fisker Inc. and the man behind the unfortunate Tesla-challenging Karma hybrid sports vehicle, Henrik Fisker, has declared a new electric vehicle with range of “almost 300 miles” that will begin “less than $40,000.” The SUV, which is the second that the firm has declared, is due in the H2 of 2021. It will also be the first of 3 mass-market EVs, as per the firm, although the company did not mention particular sales or production targets.
The firm’s first vehicle—EMotion (the all-electric luxury sedan)—has been postponed, though. Initially meant to expert by the end of this year or early next year, it now will not be launched until after this new mass-market car gets on the streets, partially because the firm’s solid-state futuristic battery tech is not set for commercial launch, the firm claimed to the media in an interview. Fisker Inc. did not declare a name for the new SUV, but it gave some info for interested users to chew on over the coming 2 years.
On a related note, the Macan SUV will be the first of current road cars by Porsche to go all-electric, the German sports automaker declared earlier. The all-electric Macan will debut for production sometime early next year, the firm claimed. The Macan is presently the best-selling car by Porsche. The firm traded almost 90,000 of them last year, overtaking the Panamera sedan and the Cayenne SUV.
The Macan EV will be the 3rd all-electric vehicle in Porsche’s series. Porsche is set to begin producing the Taycan sedan at the end of this year. A crossover edition of the Taycan, dubbed as the Cross Turismo, will go into manufacturing by 2020. Porsche did not declare any additional details about the electric car, apart from that it will share the same charging system being employed in the Cross Turismo and the Taycan.
