The Foxconn deal, Fisker says, will leverage that company's scale and manufacturing efficiencies.
He says the vehicle will cost "much less" than the Ocean. Even though Foxconn has never built a car, it is an automotive industry supplier of wiring harnesses and screens and will be building vehicles with a number of Chinese automakers before production of the second Fisker vehicle begins.
Fisker says the style will be unlike anything currently in production. And the vehicle will be aimed at commuters and urban drivers.
"I can tell you it will be a body style that is not quite a one-box," a multipurpose-vehicle-like model, such as a Ford Transit Connect. "It will have such unique proportions that it will not fit in a segment. It won't be a sedan, and it won't be a pickup truck because it has to be a vehicle that will be driven by a lot of people," Fisker said.
"It will be somewhat smaller than the Ocean. When you see the vehicle, you will immediately realize there is nothing like it. And I think some people might find it a little too futuristic and a little too different in the beginning.
"But I think that is necessary because we want to create a vehicle that goes across social borders. So we are not trying to make another traditional, slightly better-looking hatchback or something like that."
