Fisker confirms PEAR EV to be built at Foxconn’s new plant in Ohio

Fisker has confirmed it is partnering with Foxconn to build its second concept electric vehicle, known as the PEAR, at the tech company’s newly acquired plant in Ohio.

Foxconn, the world’s largest electronics contract manufacturer, recently completed its $230 million purchase of Lordstown’s former manufacturing facility in Ohio earlier this week.

In a press release confirming the partnership, Fisker says the PEAR (Personal Electric Automotive Revolution) EV will begin production in 2024, with a ramp up that will eventually see the facility build at least 250,000 units per year.

Fisker Chairman and CEO Henrik Fisker will visit the factory tomorrow, May 13, 2022.

The PEAR was announced earlier this year and is expected to come in at under $30,000 USD. They also released this teaser image of the EV.

“The PEAR will be a revolutionary electric vehicle that won’t fit into any existing segment. The exterior design will feature new lighting technology and a wraparound front windscreen inspired by a glider plane glass canopy, enhancing frontal vision,” Fisker said in a statement.

The company says its first vehicle, the Ocean SUV is still set to begin production in Austria on November 17, 2022. The Ocean will have a Canadian connection as it will be built by the Aurora, Ontario based Magna International.

Even though their first EV has yet to enter production, Fisker has already announced its third EV. Dubbed Project Ronin, it is expected to be a Grand Touring sports car and have the longest range of any production EV by the time it launches in 2025.
