Electric vehicle entrepreneur Henrik Fisker has unveiled his first purportedly mass - market EV, SUV called Fisker Ocean, ahead of the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show. Starting at $37 500, Fisker says electric SUV will get between 250 and 300 miles per charge, and it will feature solar panels on the roof. Fisker and his eponymous company, Fisker Inc., Plan to put Ocean on road sometime around the end of 2021 or beginning of 2022. Fisker started Fisker Inc. In 2016, three years after his first company, Fisker Automotive, went bankrupt, thanks to the failure of his hybrid sports car known as Karma. Karma was ultimately revived by a Chinese company after Fisker Automotives bankruptcy auction; that company is now called Karma Automotive, and the car is called Revero. Know for designing icons like the Aston Martin DB9 and BMW Z8, as well as brief stint at Tesla, Fisker originally intended to start his new company with an all - electric sports car known as EMotion, which he unveiled at CES in 2018. But Fisker announced he was suspending the project in favor of Ocean in March 2019. Fisker Inc. Has spent a of time since then teasing more information about its electric SUV, like when it announced in November that it planned to lease Ocean starting at $379 month with no long - term contract, or when it said its EVs would be able to use Volkswagen Electrify America charging network. But Fisker himself showed off the first Ocean prototype in flesh on Sunday at an event in Los Angeles, California, and the company will have it on display at CES where it plans to share more information about the EV. Save for the solar roof, Ocean does seem to break any SUV conventions. Fisker only released one new image of the prototype on public roads, but from that limited view it appears to have similarities to Volvo XC40 in its profile, and Land Rovers SUVs in its nose, though in more of Hyundai - level package. One technical spec Fisker tease on Sunday is that there will be a performance version of Ocean that can go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 2. 9 seconds. He also said there will be multiple powertrain configurations, likely meaning that the base version of Ocean will come with one electric motor. The company said on Sunday that the base version will also be powered by a battery pack that is approximately 80kWh. Fisker Inc. Also said it plans to develop two other models that will use the Oceans technological platform. Startup also tease features like karaoke Mode and California Mode where all windows will roll down at the touch of a button. The most outrageous claim Fisker Inc. Is making about the ocean is that it will be the world's most sustainable vehicle. It backs this up in a few ways, some of which are dubious at best.

Fisker Ocean Appearance and Design

The all - electric SUV segment is set to get one of its most significant additions when first deliveries of the Fisker Ocean begin in early 2022. The man behind Oceans creation is Henrik Fisker - it was his company that sold Fisker Karma, which has since been discontinue. With a claimed MSRP of $37 499, Ocean is not just an advanced electric SUV, but a reasonably affordable one, too. Power will be derived from an 80 kWh lithium - ion battery pack with an expected range of between 250 and 300 miles. There are many more details about electrified powertrain, but they claim 0 - 60 mph time of 2. 9 seconds for fastest model will see this SUV comfortably leave behind some serious sports cars. Both two - and all - wheel - drive configurations will be available. Along with strong performance and surprisingly appealing price, Fisker Ocean sports interesting styling details like ultra - slim lights and solar roof. Special California mode will roll down all windows by pressing one button, while karaoke mode will also make an appearance. A thoroughly modern cabin will not only feature surfaces made of 100 percent Polycarbonate Polyurethane and other sustainable materials, but boast a giant central touchscreen. Comfortably undercutting the upcoming Tesla Model Y, interested buyers can now place their orders for Ocean via either the official website or on brand mobile app, although a $250 reservation fee is require. Production of the EV is set to begin in late 2021 with first deliveries expected early following year, and itll be fascinating to see reception to this exciting entrant into the electric crossover segment.

Fisker Ocean Competition

At least in price and range, Fisker Ocean is rather favorable to its competition. The Single - motor Tesla Model Y, for instance, starts at $48 000. Even entry - level Model will be more expensive than Ocean, at $39 000. Tesla Model Y will also have less range: entry - level RWD version will only be able to go 230 miles. To get 300 - mile Model Y would require stepping up to Long - Range RWD version. However, Model Y will allegedly be available sooner. The Teslas factory in China has just unveiled its Model Y production program, though US deliveries are likely until 2021. Like Tesla Model Y, Bollinger B1 and Rivian R1S are also more expensive. B1 starts at $125k, and while it offers dual motors as standard, its range is only 200 miles. R1s will offer up to 4 motors, and even its smallest battery will be larger than Oceans, at 105 kWh. But it will also be almost twice as expensive, with a starting price of $69 000. But, both of these electric SUVs offer significant off - roading capability. Not least of which is Rivian tank turn. They will also launch ahead of Fisker Ocean. Even though the 105 - kWh R1S will be available until late 2021, it will still reach the market ahead of Fiskers electric SUV. Still, if Fisker can release the Ocean on schedule and without quality issues, it stands to be a fairly affordable electric SUV with good range that wont require a massive battery. It might indeed end up making splash.

Final Thoughts

It comes with many unique selling points that are not exceptional, but will surely play a role in decision - making. Up until now, Henrik Fisker has lived up to his promises, but we will not raise our hopes given how unstable Fisker has been in the past. Companies will launch Ocean SUVs in the States at first, but will soon spread out to Europe and China as well. Its aim is to produce over one million vehicles from 2022 to 2027 globally. Suv is still a long time away. Fisker is targeting production to begin at the end of 2021 and deliveries will begin in 2022. The way market dynamics are changing, nothing is predictable and features Ocean is offering right now may not have pizzazz anymore. Nevertheless, if all goes as per Fiskers ' plan, Ocean has the potential to steal a big piece of the pie and give stiff competition to Tesla.

Fiskers Background

Fisker revealed on October 31 that the brand's newest electric vehicle will be named Ocean; SUV will take on a more conventional shape and layout for the needs of today's buyers. Instead of revealing a concept car followed by a production model, Fisker will show a fully running production - intent prototype sitting on an actual, completely engineered platform, or at least it will January 4 2020. As far as we can see, vehicle essentially looks like an electric Jaguar F - Pace. Fisker calls Ocean World Most Sustainable Vehicle,s claiming aid by way of truck building materials. The interior is completely vegan, being made of 100 per cent polycarbonate polyurethane surfaces and 100 per cent reinforced Rayon backing. Other key parts of the vehicle are also made of reclaimed materials: carpets are made of regenerated nylon from abandoned fishing nets, pulled directly from the ocean; so - call Eco - suede upholstery is made from old t - shirts and recycled bottles. Fisker also says that recycling instead of producing new polyester reduces CO2 emissions by 80 per cent. Just like Fisker vehicles previous, Ocean will have a solar panel roof to recoup more energy. The electric range will be between 250 and 300 miles thanks to an 80 - kW battery pack. Production of Fisker Ocean will begin at the end of 2021, with deliveries starting in 2022. Early reservations will take place on November 27 2019, and will be made through Fiskers proprietary app. The price should be around US $40 000, so Ocean can put Teslas Model Y square in its sights.
