Without any factories, Fisker depends on partners to produce its cars. The manufacturer is actively looking for where it can produce its next two models.
Fisker has opted for contract production for its various electric models. A choice that avoids investing in expensive industrial equipment. The Ocean is thus assembled by Magna in Austria.
Today, Fisker is looking for factories to manufacture its next two models, which Henrik Fisker describes as “almost ready”. These two models are the Pear compact crossover and the Alaska pickup.
Officially, the Pear must be produced in 2025 in Lordstown (United States) by Foxconn. However, this production agreement does not appear to be 100% finalized. Fisker is therefore looking for another partner, and is undoubtedly also targeting the European market with this model announced at €32,900 in Germany.
Electric Mini Countryman: production has started in Germany
As for the Alaska pickup, we could imagine its production alongside the Ocean SUV from which it is closely derived. But its main market would certainly be North America, so it seems logical to produce it locally to overcome the barriers erected by the Inflation Reduction Act in terms of electric vehicles.
In Europe, the main players in contract production are Magna, Valmet and VDL. But could production at a competitor also see the light of day, like that planned by Polestar in a Renault factory in Korea?
