The Pear is the most affordable model in the range of Fisker, the automaker that always approaches things differently. Now the European target price has finally been announced, and it is quite competitive.
The Fisker Pear previously attracted attention with its special tailgate: it disappears completely into the body when you open it, so that only a large opening remains. The compact SUV is below the magic limit of $30,000 in the US, and now the European target price is finally known. It is still above 30,000, but not much: the car should cost around 33,000 euros in Europe, CEO Henrik Fisker tells Autocar.
With that price, the Pear becomes cheaper than competitors such as the Volvo EX30 (from just under 37,000 euros), BYD Atto 3 (almost 39,000 euros) and the Volvo XC40 Recharge (almost 46,000 euros). But the range is there: according to Fisker, the WLPT range of the entry-level version is 320 kilometers, while for the EX30 it is 344 kilometers, for the BYD 420 kilometers and for the XX40 even 475 kilometers.
Bigger is more expensive
With a length of 4.55 meters, the Fisker Pear is quite large for a compact SUV. The car therefore offers a fascinating compromise: lots of space with relatively little range at a competitive price. For more money, there is also a version with a larger battery and 560 kilometers of range, but you will quickly pay 10,000 euros more for that.
The Fisker Pear, complete with three-seater front bench, disappearing tailgate and front drawer, is still under development. The first prototypes are expected on the road later this year, and the first customers will not receive their Pear until the end of 2025. And by then there will be a lot more electric cars on the market for around 30,000 euros.
