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.

    Good on ya, Fisker. We wish you much success.

    However, if the narrow windows trend continues, soon the roof will be resting on the sill.

      Beltlines have been rising for years thanks to conflicting federal safety and efficiency mandates. Side impact standards resulted in higher beltlines and reduced visibility - so much so that cars now require cameras to prevent drivers from hitting things - like pedestrians. Increased crash standards result in heavier cars, which hurts fuel economy and EV range. I think we are at the point of diminishing returns with automobile safety and efficiency regulations.

    And all 3 were ordered by Fisker's mother.

    Seriously, given Fisker's terrible record of Failure in the past, only an utter loser, (for example, VGhost or Art Vandelay?), looking for a BEV terrible enough to be a proper replacement of his 11 mile range Fiat 500E, would order one of these. (apart from Fisker's mother)

      "Seriously, given Fisker's terrible record of Failure in the past, only an utter loser, (for example, VGhost or Art Vandelay?), looking for a BEV"

      But it's perfect to get to the NAMBLA meetings.

    Only a damned fool, who is ignorant of Fisker's history of utter failure, will want one of these losers.

    IN ADDITION, comparing loser FIsker to Rivian is u tterly laughgable and if you don't know why, you deserve to wallow in your ignorance.

    PS How many of these will be delivered to Fisker's Mother?

    Regarding "narrow windows" - the trend is that windows will eventually be replaced by big OLED screens displaying some exotic place or may even other planet.
