Henrik Fisker tweeted the first teaser for his new electrical crossover more than a year ago. In the following months, several social media posts with several teasers were published. But today we can finally see the end product in full. The Fisker Ocean made its debut in Los Angeles shortly before CES 2020 in Las Vegas. The electric crossover promises a maximum range of 482 kilometers (300 miles), a sale date of 2021 and a starting price of $ 37,499.
According to Fisker, an approximately 80 kilowatt hour battery is used in the ocean to help him achieve his promised range of 300 miles. Even if details such as performance and charging time are still unclear, the company said the Ocean should reach a speed of 96 kilometers per hour in just 2.9 seconds and buyers could choose between two-wheelers and all-wheel drive configurations.
Inside, the Fisker Ocean takes a simplified approach, similar to what we've seen with emerging competitors like the Tesla Model Y and Ford Mustang Mach-E. A large touchscreen (no official measurements yet) is located in the front and in the middle and a smaller screen behind the steering wheel functions as a digital instrument cluster. There are also two wireless chargers and a head-up display – the latter, according to the company, can display music lyrics while playing a song, provided the driver is keen on karaoke in the car.
Five Haptic Buttons Are Hidden Below this larger middle screen, users can quickly access the home screen, fan speed, temperature, and audio. The ocean should have autonomous capabilities; Fisker didn't mention any details during the debut, but there's a striking radar in the front grille. There is also a "California Mode" function that essentially turns the SUV into an open-air vehicle.
The Fisker Ocean will be available for sale at the end of 2021, but does not expect to ship. The starting price in the US is $ 37,499 (or $ 29,999 after tax credit). Interested buyers can currently deposit a refundable security deposit of $ 250. Fisker also offers a subscription for $ 379 per month that is nearing the date of sale. The subscription service can be canceled at any time without fees and offers an annual mileage of up to 48,280 km.
