Under the agreements, Fisker and Foxconn will jointly invest into Project PEAR, with each company taking proceeds from the successful delivery of the program.
Fisker will work with Foxconn on a new lightweight platform designated ‘FP28,’ leveraging technological expertise from each company to support Project PEAR and potential future vehicles.
In support of the work on Project PEAR, the two companies have established a co-located program management office between the U.S. and Taiwan to coordinate design, engineering, purchasing, and manufacturing operations.
Following an extensive review of potential U.S. manufacturing sites, the two companies will expedite a manufacturing plan capable of supporting the projected Q4 2023 start of production.
Fisker intends to start production in Europe on its first vehicle, the Ocean electric SUV, in Q4 2022 and will unveil a productionintent prototype of the vehicle at the Los Angeles Auto Show later this year. Project PEAR will be the company’s second production model. ■
