Along with the previous agreements on the sharing of driving assistance systems, as well as platforms intended for electric vehicles, today’s news comes to conclude the framework of cooperation between the two companies announced in October 2020.
“We continue to strengthen our partnership beyond platform development and construction of Fisker Intelligent (FI) Pilot. I am very confident that Fisker and Magna will offer an incredible product to customers,” said Fisker’s president and CEO, Henrik Fisker.
Fisker says the pure electric SUV will be available with one (rear) or two electric motors, one per axle, powered by an 80 kWh lithium-ion battery. The performance of electric motors will be about 225 kW (304 horses), while there will also be a high performance version, where 0-96 km/h will complete it in less than 3 seconds.
