LOS ANGELES, March 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Fisker Inc. – creator of the world's most emotion-stirring, sustainable electric vehicles and advanced mobility solutions – is revealing never-before-seen, exciting driving footage of the Fisker Ocean all-electric luxury SUV, reflecting the reliability, durability, driving performance and maturity of the vehicle's platform. Select design specifications are also being released.
Henrik Fisker, chairman and CEO – Fisker Inc.
"We are aiming to disrupt the automotive industry by challenging all conventions, development time, manufacturing scale-up, customer ownership experience, vehicle financing and service. This is no small feat, but we truly believe we are entering a new era where customers are driving the demand for radical change. People want mobility as a service, delivered through exciting, affordable vehicles with a hassle-free experience. We have delivered the Fisker Ocean in record time: not just another show vehicle, but a drivable production-intent prototype sitting on a fully engineered and durability tested platform, with a production-ready powertrain and battery pack. The future is about delivering product value, sustainability and a unique customer experience."
Performance-Built. Utility-Focused. Comfort-Driven.
Suspension and Handling:
Active Aerodynamics and Cooling:
World-Class Crash Performance:
Big Space. Big Screens. Big Experiences In a Compact, Agile Shape.
The Fisker Ocean experience is characterized by a sense of freedom, fun and luxury – complemented by off-road capability and superior utility. The vehicle is nimble and easy to maneuver. Comfortable, yet sporty.
Dramatic Dimensions: At 4,640 millimeters (182.7 inches) in length, 1,930 millimeters (76 inches) in width and 1,615 millimeters (63.6 inches) in height, the all-electric luxury SUV offers a spacious environment for both front and rear passengers. With thoughtful design touches, new spaces are created for five adults to sit comfortably – even during the longest of rides. The center console offers extra space for a purse or other items below the console. Two inductive chargers for smartphones are placed right under the touch screen, which features five haptic buttons for fast, safe and intuitive responses while driving.
Functional Utility: With 566 liters (20 cubic feet) of trunk space, the vehicle presents practicality and utility. The space increases to 708 liters (25 cubic feet) with the parcel shelf removed. The rear glass can be lowered independently to allow long items to be placed without having to open the hatch, while a rubber scuff plate, made of recycled tires, protects the loading edge.
The Fisker Ocean will come with roof rails and towing hook options. Towing capacity will be released in 2021.
Stunning Wheels: The base model will feature stylishly designed 20-inch wheels, with 22-inch wheel options for an even larger presence on and off the road. The 22-inch option is pictured.
All-Terrain Driving and Power: The Fisker Ocean will be offered in a four-wheel drive configuration on all trims except for the base model – reflecting the vehicle's off-road capabilities. The standard four-wheel drive configuration will deliver an output of more than 225 kilowatts (more than 300 horsepower), with an ultra-high-performance version targeting zero-to-60 mph in less than three seconds (total power output to be announced in 2021).
Foresight: A state-of-the-art heads-up display integrated into the windshield will be complemented by a large 16-inch center touch screen and a 9.8-inch cluster screen. From augmented reality features to haptic touch buttons and immersive digital experiences, the vehicle offers impressive visuals all around. Fisker is working on integrating a Karaoke mode that will display lyrics from your favorite song in the windshield without having to take your eyes of the road.
The seats are designed for optimal comfort and space, the entire interior is vegan and all the carpets are made from recycled fishing nets and plastic bottles collected from the world's oceans.
California Mode: This patented feature, inspired by the Fisker brand's roots and passion for the Southern California coastline, lowers/slides nine glass windows/panels to open the entire cabin with one touch – creating an open-air feeling, while still maintaining a full "roll cage" safety structure around the passengers.
The feature allows the rear hatch glass to drop – enabling long items to be placed through the opening without having to drive with an open tailgate.
Fisker will offer this feature as an option. Details of Fisker's full option packages will be released later this year.
Charging and Range: The Fisker Ocean features a CCS Type 2 Combo plug with 150kW charging capability – enabling the vehicle to be charged through any stations that leverage technology in line with the latest in international standards.
Production is projected to begin in Q4 2021, with high-volume deliveries of the Fisker Ocean targeted to ramp up in 2022. Global and localized supply chains secured across the U.S., Europe and China will result in more than 1 million vehicles – including three models – projected to be produced between 2022 and 2027.
Additional specifications will be released via Fisker's proprietary FLEXEE app in the coming months.
