Exclusive: Fisker to develop two new electric cars in the UK

Two new luxury Fisker EVs will cost from around $100,000 and will be on sale by 2025

Fisker CEO Henrik Fisker has revealed that the next two models to be launched after the Fisker Ocean and Fisker Pear will be developed in the UK by the new Fisker Magic Works team, led by former Aston Martin man David King.

When the announcement was made about Magic Works, Fisker said: “We are on full speed to deliver four distinct vehicle lines by 2025, driving innovation forward and pushing radical new ideas into the global car market.”

While the Ocean and Pear are both set to compete with mainstream EVs, with US starting prices rumoured to start at under $30,000 (£26,000) for the Pear, the next two British-developed Fisker models will be more expensive offerings.

Speaking exclusively to Auto Express about the UK-developed cars, Fisker said: “They’re very different – they're going to go in in a segment which I would say maybe one exists a little bit but it'll be a twist on it and the other one doesn't exist at all.

“We're looking at a very extreme vehicle so one will be over $100,000 (£73,500) and the other will be below, and they will be two very different vehicles. They will both be serious production vehicles and not low volume handmade – they will still be serious production but not as high volume, of course, as the Ocean and the Pear.”

Although the development work will be done in the UK, Fisker doesn’t expect them to be built over here. “That has not been decided yet, but honestly I think there's a very little chance of that,” he told us.

Fisker has manufacturing deals with Magna, which will produce the Ocean from its vast facility in Graz, Austria, while Taiwanese tech manufacturing giant Foxconn is set to build the smaller Pear model in a plant in the US.

The Fisker Ocean will debut at next month’s Los Angeles Motor Show with the first cars set to arrive with customers at the end of 2022 or early 2023. The Pear is set to arrive 12 months later, with the two British-developed cars arriving a year or so after that.
