In a separate press release, Fisker announced that its first EV, the Ocean (shown above), surpassed 50,000 reservations and is “on track to start production in Graz, Austria, in November 2022” with no price changes through 2023. Fisker inked a “platform sharing and manufacturing cooperation” with Magna Steyr (the most prominent automotive parts supplier in North America) to build the Ocean in a carbon-neutral factory after flirting with Volkswagen’s MEB electric architecture in 2020.
With no anticipated price changes, the base Ocean Sport will start at $37,499 (before federal incentives). For the money, you get a single front-mounted electric motor with 275 horsepower and zero to 60 mph in 6.9 seconds. Ocean Ultra is next in the price range, starting at $49,999. It has dual electric motors, 540 horsepower, zero to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds, and 340 miles of driving range. Meanwhile, the range-topping Ocean Extreme has dual electric motors, 550 horsepower, and over 350 miles of driving range for $68,999. It could also do the zero to 60 mph dash in 3.6 seconds, giving it enough gravitas to make Tesla, Porsche, and Ford EV owners take notice.
