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.
Fisker has provided a peek at the 'close to' US$40k electric vehicle it's preparing to take on the Tesla Model Y, ahead of its reveal on March 18.
The car won't actually hit the market until 2021, by which point Henrik Fisker is expecting solid-state battery technology to be ready for mass consumption – and at a price that'll allow his company to sell its electric vehicle for the equivalent of AU$55,000.
The Fisker EMotion, the latest vehicle from the pen of Henrik Fisker, has been teased again on social media.
The latest teaser photo shows the car's front profile, and follows on from earlier teasers that revealed the vehicle's front-end design, as well as its butterfly door arrangement, which is said to make for easier ingress and egress.
