Los Angeles - Fisker, the electric car brand that was an early rival to Tesla before going bankrupt in 2013, appears to be back on track and the start-up is planning to launch a new SUV to rival the Model Y.
What you see above is the first official teaser for the upcoming crossover, which is set to go on sale in the US next year with a price tag of below $40 000 (R577 000).
The brand, which was known for attracting celebrity buyers, is led by former BMW designer Henrik Fisker. Like Tesla, Fisker will sell directly to consumers without dealers.
The new SUV, with an expected range of some 500 kilometers between charges, comes from a new corporate entity called Fisker Inc.
A year ago, Henrik Fisker unveiled plans for a $129 000 (R1.85m) electric luxury car, but the group said that vehicle launch will be pushed back until after the lower-priced SUV.
