The Ocean is set to make some waves.
The EV market is seeing a boom in new models, and not just from established players like Volkswagen and Mercedes-Benz, but from newcomers like Lucid Motors and Fisker, both of which have made waves in recent months with their stunning designs and impressive claimed performance. Fisker is getting ready to debut the Ocean SUV, which will be gunning for the Tesla Model Y once it is finally released, and for this Los Angeles-based company the launch of its first SUV can't come soon enough. The company has just announced that the Ocean will make its public debut next May at the 2021 Los Angeles Auto Show, and pictured below is the first official photo of the production model.
Fisker and Magna International have co-developed the Ocean, and the European-based company will manage production "to deliver class-leading range, functional interior space with third-row seating and overall vehicle performance." The news only gets better, as Fisker recently signed a major vehicle order with Danish ride-hailing service Viggo for 300 cars.
Henrik Fisker, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Fisker, stated, "It's with great excitement that we're making the global debut of the Fisker Ocean here in our home city of Los Angeles. As befits the world's first digital car company, we are also planning to showcase several Fisker-unique technologies that will support our differentiated ownership experience and vehicle functionality."
The Fisker Ocean is the company's first production vehicle, and is expected to retail for $37,499 when it goes on sale early in 2022. Details on the car are scarce. But what is known is that it will be powered by electric motors supplied by an 80 kWh lithium-ion battery pack which will grant it a driving range of between 250 and 300 miles. Two-and all-wheel-drive configurations will be available, and supercars better watch out: The Fisker Ocean has a claimed zero to sixty time of only 2.9 seconds. This is definitely an exciting time for the EV industry.
