Fisker teases new photo of its 'affordable' all-electric SUV

Electric car company Fisker has teased a new photo of its upcoming battery-powered SUV, which it says will unveil this coming December, and which will cost US$40,000 when it goes on sale.
Company founder and CEO Henrik Fisker didn't go the traditional route of leaking the photo to the press; instead, he posted it on his Facebook page.
The focus was on the D-pillar – where a recessed LED turn signal alongside the conventional rear-mounted signals 'will provide extra safety when you change lanes,' he said – and on the wide, sculptured rear fender. The picture also shows a sunroof over the rear of the cabin, and pop-out door handles with LED strips in them.


Two hours prior, Fisker posted that the company is 'moving fast' on the electric SUV prototype, and that he's in the final stages of selecting a plant to manufacture it.
The Fisker SUV is targeting the upcoming Tesla Model Y, which is expected to go into production in late 2020. Tesla plans to sell the top-line versions first, advertising US$66,290 for a long-range model with rear-wheel drive. In all-wheel-drive trim, the long-range is $72,290, and the performance model is $84,290. A standard-range model, expected to cost around US$48,000, will go on sale in 2021.

Fisker earlier said its electric sport-ute will have two electric motors
, one for each axle, to provide all-wheel drive; and a range of 482 kilometres with an 80-kWh lithium-ion battery. It's expected to go into production late in 2021. Fisker says it will be the first of three 'affordable' electric vehicles the company is planning to produce.
In January 2018, it showed off its EMotion flagship luxury car, which it said will use solid-state batteries, have a range of 640 kilometres, offer Level 4 autonomous driving features and retail for around US$130,000.
