The Fisker Ocean SUV will be built by Magna Steyr in Europe. Magna's EV tech will be incorporated into electric SUV. Magna recently showcased its EV tech with Sony concept car. Henrik Fisker's electric startup made some waves a little under a year ago when it unveiled the Ocean SUV, promising a 300 - mile range and a modest price. The company, Fisker's second automaker on paper, took wraps off Ocean at last year's CES in Las Vegas, showing a running prototype with a $37 499 starting price, vegan interior and solar roof. Suv also promises California Mode that rolls down all nine windows, including ones between C and D pillars - a rarity in Automotive architecture. For what it's worth, SUV does seem real, in the sense that it wasn't static plastic model on show stand. Fisker showed off a running prototype with its own platform looking production ready. Seemingly everything appeared ready, except for one thing: factory to produce it. Since these things require a footprint and hundreds of suppliers, Fisker was not going to build Ocean in a basement, especially with $37 499 starting price. In fact, Ocean isn't meant to be low volume, Bristol - style effort at all - Fisker imagines mass manufacture. The question of what company is going to build SUVs was answered a few days ago: Austria's supplier giant Magna Steyr will produce Ocean in Europe, initially on an exclusive basis. Magna has a unique position in the industry with its market - leading innovative solutions combined with vehicle assembly capabilities that have produced more than 3. 7 million vehicles from 30 different models, said Frank Klein, President of Magna Steyr. Magna's proven capabilities, particularly in electric vehicles, form a strong basis to support Fisker with World Class engineering and manufacturing of Fisker Ocean. Because of its huge role in automotive manufacturing, Magna Steyr is still far from being a household name in the US, so you might remember it best for building Mercedes - Benz G - Class in Graz, Austria. But besides doing a lot of work behind the scenes for numerous automakers, Magna Steyr was also in the news recently for Sony - brand sedan that seemed to come out of left field. Magna essentially build newly - Design EV prototype along with several supplier partners, and makes it seem very casual and production - ready, showcasing its prototyping and engineering potential. What's curious about the Fisker deal is that Ocean will use Magna's own EV architecture along with Fisker - Flexible Platform Adaptive Design. It appears the engineering behind it won't be entirely Fisker's couple with off - shelf items from outside suppliers with Magna just doing the car's assembly. At the very least, hardware Magna showcased in the Sony car could have been timely preview of the EV - building ability it is offering to manufacturers.
