It will come standard with an extended range (target of approximately 300 miles / 480 kilometres), enabled by an enhanced +80 KWh lithium-ion battery pack.
Fisker, which made its announcement in a press release with images of the new vehicle, said a drivable prototype would be available later this year.
A decade ago, Fisker and Tesla were two electric-vehicle hopefuls, and it was looking like Fisker might have the better chances of success.
While no official release date has been announced, the SUV is expected to launch during the second half of 2021 and be one of three mass-market vehicles created by the company. But Henrik retained the rights to the Fisker name and logo, reconstituting his efforts under the Fisker Inc. banner.
Days after Tesla unveiled its Model Y, the mass-market electric sports utility vehicle is already facing potential competition from an upstart company ran by famed auto designer Henrik Fisker who, like Elon Musk, aims to make affordable versions of emissions-free vehicles for the average consumer.

Interior design and materials will be modern, Fisker says, with a heads-up display to keep the driver's eyes on the road.

Fisker, which is set to sell directly to consumers, is also working on a nationwide (USA) concierge service model for a superior user and maintenance experience.
That's dubbed the Fisker Solid-State Battery, which the automaker has patented, and there are some huge claims attached.

Henrik Fisker: "We're now excited to be introducing a vehicle that truly reinvents the SUV".
As Tesla CEO Elon Musk reiterated last week in his Model Y introduction, setting up a completely new mass-production model to be built, even if it's already designed and developed, is massively time-consuming.
Much in the way that Tesla has attempted to make its EVs more accessible to the mainstream, with the Model 3 and upcoming Model Y, so Fisker has ambitions for a broader audience.
