The compact SUV comes with up to six seats, has a nifty sliding boot opening and is built with sustainability and easy repair in mind. Read on to find out more.
- New Fisker Pear revealed
- Small electric SUV
- Possibility of 400 miles of range
- Production due to start in 2025
- Prices could start from around £25,000
American car maker Fisker has revealed the Pear, an electric SUV. It’ll be smaller than the current Fisker Ocean and will cost from $29,900 (£23,800) in the States. A lot could change before the Pear arrives on these shores though, so expect to see UK versions start from around £25,000.
This alternative to the Audi Q4 e-tron and Tesla Model Y is set to be available in the middle of 2025.
New Fisker Pear design
It has a fairly short nose with a square look to it, while there’s lots of black cladding on the bottom half of the front end. There’s a full-width light bar with ‘PEAR’ written in the middle and slim headlights at either end.
There’s also a curved windscreen and the A-pillars are set slightly further back than normal so that the driver gets a better view over both front corners. You’ll also see cameras instead of conventional mirrors, and pop-out door handles.
The rear is where you’ll find the most radical feature though. Rather than a normal hatchback, the boot slides down like an electric window and you can open just the window to easily put things in the back. You will also have a ‘froot’ to load things under the bonnet.
The Pear has a rooflip spoiler, a single rear light shaped like an oval that follows the spoiler edge and under the rear window, and you get ‘FISKER’ written across the back.
Although it’s not confirmed if it’s installed as standard, the car shown in a Fisker livestream had a solar panel on the roof. That will likely help with running the Pear’s electrical systems in the cabin, aiding efficiency.
While we got a glimpse of the cabin that had a smaller central touchscreen, Henrik Fisker – CEO and founder of Fisker – said that the Pear will only have that small screen when you have the six-seat layout.
If you have the regular five-seat car, there will be the 17-inch rotating touchscreen that’s available in the larger Ocean SUV (pictured).
New Fisker Pear motors and batteries
No official range or battery figures for the Pear’s have been released. As it’s built on the same platform as the Ocean though, we can easily speculate as to what you could get.
The Ocean has two battery options, one offering 350 miles of range and a ‘Hyper Range’ option which can do 390 miles. Being a smaller car, the Pear may be able to do up to 400 miles on a charge.
As standard, you get a single front-mounted 275hp electric motor with the standard range Ocean, while the Hyper Range version gets dual motors, all-wheel drive and 550hp.
When can you buy the new Fisker Pear?
Fisker has confirmed that the Pear EV will go on sale in the USA in 2024, with prices starting from under $29,900 (£23,800).
It’s unclear whether we’ll see the Pear in the UK though. The larger Fisker Ocean will be coming to the UK by the end of 2023, so there’s a chance we’ll see the Pear come to our shores in 2025.
