“We created our company to disrupt every convention in the auto industry. The creation of Project PEAR with Foxconn brings together two like minded and complementary companies, each focused on creating new value in a traditional industry,” said Fisker Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Henrik Fisker.

“We will create a vehicle that crosses social borders, while offering a combination of advanced technology, desirable design, innovation and value for money, whilst delivering on our commitment to create the world’s most sustainable vehicles.”

Last week, Foxconn Chairman Liu announced the company’s plans to present two new light EVs built on Foxconn’s platform. They are likely to be rolled out in Q4 this year. This platform was introduced back in October with a goal to help EV producers to launch cars faster.

“The Fisker and Foxconn partnership brings together two global leaders in innovation that will join forces to unlock the potential of the electric vehicle industry,” said Foxconn Technology Group Chairman, Young-way Liu. 

Two companies have plans to produce a quarter of million of units per year.
