U.S. Fisker Ocean Deliveries to Start Soon
Upstart automakers don’t always have the smoothest path to success, but a few make it through the daunting pre-release vehicle development period and beat the odds. Rivian did it, and now it’s Fisker’s turn. The automaker, helmed by famed auto designer Henrik Fisker, will ship its first EV starting June 19.
Fisker also announced an EPA range estimate for the Ocean EV, which will deliver up to 360 miles on a charge. Deliveries began in Europe in May, though only two units have hit the streets so far. Three variants are available, including Extreme, Ultra, and Sport, with the Extreme delivering the longest range. The middle-child Ultra offers 340 miles, and the entry-level Sport manages 250 miles on a charge. Pricing for the Extreme starts at $68,999, the Ultra at $49,999, and the Sport at $47,499.
Bloomberg recently reported that the Ocean was delayed because of software glitches, but the automaker firmly denied the report in a statement. Fisker also denied the publication’s statement that the SUV’s software limited its speed, saying, “We categorically deny that the Fisker Ocean can only be driven at low speeds.” Henrik Fisker posted a video to LinkedIn a short while later, in which he is seen driving the Ocean on the Autobahn at 129 mph.
