Fisker is planning to take on Tesla in Australia, announced its mid-sized SUV will make the trip Down Under.
The company's founder, Henrik Fisker, responded to TechAU on Twitter and confirmed the news over the weekend.
"We aim to make the world’s most sustainable vehicle, the 2021 Fisker Electric SUV. Priced below [US$]40,000. The interior (just saw prototype) is incredibly spacious for its segment with recycled materials," Fisker tweeted. Asked if it's headed for our shores, he responded with "Yes".
Fisker is targeting a price of US$40,000 ($56,000) with its plug-in crossover, which is being pitched as a free-thinking take on the classic luxury formula.
Teaser images have revealed a lot about the as-yet unnamed SUV. We know it'll be offered with an 80kWh battery pack as standard, and Fisker has targeted 480km as its driving range.
Dual-motor all-wheel drive will be offered, along with 22-inch alloy wheels (for those who hate ride quality). The interior will be offered with unique, renewably-sourced trim options, and a full-length panoramic sunroof.
Production of the all-electric Fisker SUV will begin in the second half of 2021, suggesting a 2022 arrival is on the cards. Fisker also confirmed the car will be offered in the UK.
