Fisker electric SUV 2022 locked in for an Australian debut

Though a production version has yet to be revealed, Fisker's electric SUV will sport around 483 kilometres of driving range.

American electric vehicle (EV)-specialist Fisker has confirmed its new emissions-free SUV will make its way to Australia to battle the likes of the Tesla Model X and Hyundai Kona Electric.

Replying to a tweet by TechAU, Fisker founder and company namesake Henrik Fisker simply answered "yes" to a question whether its latest model will be "available in Australia".

Details are scarce for now, but the international launch for the all-electric SUV is due in the second half of 2021, placing its Australian arrival sometime thereafter.

Fisker is also promising a pricetag below $US40,000 ($A56,816) and a driving range of around 300 miles (483km) thanks to an 80kWh lithium-ion battery.

As such, the Fisker electric SUV could be well placed to slot in between the Tesla Model X and Hyundai Kona Electric, which start at $140,850 before on-road costs and $59,990 respectively.

Though the production version is yet to break cover, Fisker is already touting a front grille with radar sensor, presumably for advanced driver assistance features such as autonomous emergency braking and adaptive cruise control.

Aerodynamics are also optimised, with an open lower grille for cooling of electric components and an optimised underbody.

Fisker is expected to reveal a functional prototype by year's end. Fisker is expected to reveal a functional prototype by year's end.

Fisker is also touting a "vastly spacious interior" with "high-quality materials" with features such as a head-up display and cutting-edge interior technology.

Dual-electric motors will also mean all-wheel drive, with wheel options extending to as big as 22 inches.

Fisker is expected to reveal a functional prototype by year's end, while the electric SUV will spearhead the first of three new models from the brand, which will be topped by the road-going version of the Emotion concept.
