The goal of the two companies is to create a U.S. manufacturing facility for a new EV platform. This is working under the title Project ‘PEAR’ (Personal Electric Automotive Revolution).

Fisker is aiming to create a new EV platform that will only cost customers $30,000, before taking into account incentives. Both it and Foxconn will co-develop the vehicle together and will also share the profits from the effort.

Fisker and Foxconn have yet to decide on a location for the Project PEAR factory. However, the two companies note that they are looking at multiple locations in the U.S. that could servce as home to the facility.

Fisker says that the Prject PEAR EV platform will be developed under the name “‘FP28”. The two companies are planning to start production of this EV in the fourth quarter of 2023. There’s still no date for when the EV will be ready for commercial sales.

Henrik Fisker, chairman and CEO of Fisker, said the following about the news boosting FST stock up today.

“In order to deliver on our promise of product breakthroughs from Project PEAR, we needed to rethink every aspect of product development, sourcing, and manufacturing. Our partnership with Foxconn enables us to deliver those industry firsts at a price point that truly opens up electric mobility to the mass market.”
