The American company Fisker, the manufacturer of the electric sports car Karma produced since 2012, has announced a new electric car. It is a fully electric SUV that has to go on sale for less than $ 40,000.

Fisker reports that the new SUV should be released in the second half of 2021 for less than $ 40,000. The company does not yet provide information about the exact price. The vehicle would get a range that is close to 482km. This is based on an ‘improved lithium-ion battery’ with a capacity of more than 80kWh.

The company will only provide further details when the release is approaching. For the time being, the American manufacturer has only published a single picture of the car. The CEO of the company says the new SUV is meant to put an “affordable electric car” on the market that is “more exciting” than what is available now. The new vehicle will have four-wheel drive and two electric motors, one engine driving the front wheels and the other engine driving the rear wheels.

The manufacturer says that a drivable prototype must be ready by the end of this year and that a production facility for the vehicle has yet to be built. Based on the latter, the release in 2021 or the target price of less than $ 40,000 seems on the optimistic side.

Fisker is best known for the Karma, a strikingly designed, relatively expensive electric sports car that has been on the market since 2012. The car is powered by an electric motor, but there is also a gasoline engine that serves as a generator for the 20kWh battery. The electric range of 51 km can thus be expanded to 370 km.
