Fisker introduces production version of the Ocean-production

The electric car startup Fisker presented the production version of its all-electric SUV Ocean at the Los Angeles Auto Show. There is also only detailed information on the technology and prices. The vehicle is already in production: a few days ago, contract manufacturer Magna-Steyr in Graz started assembling the Ocean. Initially, 5000 pieces of the exclusive and extensively equipped launch edition will roll off the assembly line there, which will be available as Fisker Ocean One at a price of 68.999 US dollars (equivalent to a good 61.000 euros) is available.

The basic version of the Ocean, which only goes into production afterwards, costs from 37.$499 (about 33.200 euros), the all-wheel drive version Ocean Ultra beats with at least 49.$999 (44th.200 euros) to book. And also the Fisker “for the rough”, the Ocean Extreme, will be produced in the future and at a price from 68.$999 (61st.000 euros) to be had. As an alternative to purchasing, Fisker has introduced a subscription model that starts at $379 per month and has a one-time initial fee of $2999.

Fisker CEO Henrik Fisker explained the Ocean’s design philosophy at the premiere and why he believes the SUV will be the most sustainable and innovative vehicle on the market when it goes into production in November. “Our mission is to create the most innovative and sustainable vehicles in the world, which are at the same time affordable, and everything starts with the Fisker Ocean, as we fully and quite a clean future for all,” Fisker said at the beginning of the event. So the Fisker Ocean of Magna-Steyr, where, among other things, Mercedes-Benz and BMW can be mounted in a CO2 neutral plant in Graz, Austria, manufactured.

Fisker appreciates that the range of the basic version, the single-engine Fisker Ocean Sport with front drive, about 250 miles (a good 400 kilometers) according to the realistic US standard EPA will be. The EPA Range for the All-wheel-Driven, Two-Motorcy Fisker Ocean Ultra and Fisker Ocean Extreme is the manufacturer of 340 miles (547 kilometers) or. More than 350 miles (563 kilometers). The entry-level version features robust and inexpensive lithium-ion phosphate (LFP) battery cells from the Chinese battery manufacturer CATL. The models with better equipment are equipped by CATL with nickel-manganese-cobalt cells (NMC), which have a higher energy density and thus enable longer ranges.

In order to increase the range in everyday life, Fisker equips the Extreme and One model variants with a solar roof, which should provide an additional 2000 miles per year (about 3200 kilometers) under ideal conditions. For sun-kissed California, the manufacturer also promises 1,500 miles (about 2,400 kilometers). The Ocean will also feature a range of innovative charging technologies that will allow owners to charge other electric vehicles, feed electricity into the grid and use their vehicles as a backup power source for their homes. The company calls these technologies PowerCar, PowerGrid and PowerHouse.

Henrik Fisker also gave some performance data for the four Ocean variants: The basic Ocean Sport version will have an output of 202 kW (275 hp) and will accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.9 seconds. The Ocean Ultra is advertised as having 397 kW (540 hp) and acceleration to 100 in 3.9 seconds. The Ocean Extreme and the Ocean One are said to have an output of 405 kW (550 hp) and sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.6 seconds. Although these data have not yet been homologated, the official measurements should not differ significantly from those previously communicated.

A nice gimmick is the California mode available on the Ultra, Extreme and One models: at the touch of a button, the Ocean lowers all of its windows and opens its sunroof, which is said to offer a convertible-like open-air experience. Inside, the Ocean seats five passengers in a fully vegan interior using recycled materials, including recycled fishing nets, old t-shirts and renewed rubber. A special Limo mode allows rear-seat passengers to adjust the volume of the audio system and adjust the heating and air conditioning.

Another innovative gimmick is the central, 17.1-inch screen: it can be rotated from the standard portrait format mode to a Hollywood mode while driving when parking, for example to watch videos in landscape format.

A whole range of driver assistance systems is intended to increase the safety of the Ocean. The proactive system of automated electronic sensors (radar, ultrasonic sensors and cameras) intervenes when necessary to anticipate and prevent accidents. In addition, according to Fisker, there is a wide range of advanced warning functions, safety-controlled braking functions and driver comfort functions.

  1. It’s chic, the steering wheel isn’t overloaded with buttons ! Well, the huge tablet in the middle seems to be becoming the norm, if you need it..
    I also think the V2x options are great
    then let’s hope that the production goes as planned ( better sooner )
    The Ocean Sport would definitely be a purchase candidate
    Hopefully extended as the eAuto promotion

  2. Normally Fisker would have been lumped together with Sonomotors, Microlino and whatever they are called. But when production is already underway, you can actually wait until it hits the street and then get an idea. Provided, of course, that you like SUVs. Otherwise I don’t see anything special in the car, many people do this nonsense solar roof. It’s just required.

  3. As is so often the case, I can’t see anything about the essential facts anywhere: battery size, charging standards, charging speeds, trailer hitch options and towing capacity. Still focus on “how fast can I accelerate from 0 to 100 and how many horsepower does the car have”. In practice, in my experience, completely irrelevant.

  4. An enrichment for electromobility. Only criticism, oh no not another SUV! The Americans will like it. Range, performance, price, gimmicks and luxury seem to be right. I think the look is ok (except SUV stop). It works in electromobility.
