Fisker has presented the production-intent version of its all-electric Pear at its Los Angeles store. While the vehicle maintains the overall design from the initial preview in August, notable alterations have been made to bring it closer to the model customers can purchase.
A primary external difference is observed in the upgraded headlights of the production-intent Pear. Featuring thin LED units connected by a detailed LED light bar and an illuminated Pear emblem at the center, this modification enhances the vehicle's aesthetic. Additionally, the Pear displayed in Los Angeles now sports traditional wing mirrors, a departure from the concept's camera system.
The most significant update is found in the cabin design. Fisker introduces its innovative “see-through A-pillar” concept, employing small cameras mounted on the A-pillars to feed information to a pair of portrait-oriented screens. This design aims to enhance driver awareness and pedestrian safety during left-hand turns by providing visibility through the A-pillar, addressing a potential blind spot. While perceived by some as a complex solution, Fisker emphasizes its commitment to safety.
Several other changes grace the interior, including the replacement of the modest dashboard infotainment display with the Ocean's expansive portrait screen. Measuring 17.1 inches, the screen, initially mentioned as an option in August, raises questions about its practicality. Fisker's ‘Houdini' trunk design is also showcased, featuring a tailgate and rear window that slide underneath the trunk floor instead of the conventional upward-opening configuration.
Technical details regarding the Pear's powertrain remain undisclosed. Fisker mentions the availability of two battery packs, offering ranges of 180 miles (290 km) and 320 miles (515 km), respectively. The lineup includes both single-motor rear-wheel drive (RWD) and dual-motor all-wheel drive (AWD) versions.
In parallel news, Fisker reports a record delivery of 107 vehicles on November 16, attributing the achievement to a revised distribution strategy involving more transportation logistics partners. Notably, customers residing within 60 miles (96 km) of a Fisker fulfillment location can opt for a unique delivery service, with a Fisker employee driving the vehicle directly to them.
