Taking on the Tesla Model Y, when it goes on sale in a few years time, the as-yet-unnamed SUV promises cutting-edge technology along with around 300 miles of zero-emissions range, though we still have plenty of questions.

The American auto manufacturer has announced its new $40,000 electric SUV which will go on sale in 2021. Inside, a large head-up display and "a unique, intuitive user interface" will allow drivers to operate the vehicle.

Fisker has plans to launch an all-electric SUV to compete with Tesla's new Model Y.

Fisker is among several startups in the USA and elsewhere moving into the electric vehicle market which is expected to see strong growth.

Designer Henrik Fisker says the goal with the exterior styling was muscular-meets-elegant, a dramatic aesthetic that would stir emotions.

The SUV will be offered in both rear- and all-wheel drive, the latter adding an electric motor to the front axle to augment the one at the rear.

Performance details haven't been revealed, but an 80kWh lithium ion battery pack is claimed to provide of a range of almost 300 miles.

There will also be an extended length sunroof-style mechanism for an "open-air atmosphere. without compromising the rugged and safe structural integrity" of the vehicle. Nevertheless, it hopes to prepare and reveal its first driving prototype of the model by the end of the year and will begin taking reservations closer to the projected launch window in the second half of 2021.

"While other manufacturers have introduced attractive, high-performance electric cars with high price tags, the real race is about who can deliver a truly high-volume, affordable, yet desirable [model]", Fisker said in a statement.

That's dubbed the Fisker Solid-State Battery, which the automaker has patented, and there are some huge claims attached.

Now, though, it's juggling the timelines.

Much in the way that Tesla has attempted to make its EVs more accessible to the mainstream, with the Model 3 and upcoming Model Y, so Fisker has ambitions for a broader audience.

The company projects to eventually have three different vehicles.
