Fisker Ocean all-electric SUV makes European debut at Mobile World Congress
BARCELONA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Fisker Inc. (NYSE: FSR) (“Fisker”) – passionate creator of the world’s most durable electric vehicles and advanced mobility solutions – launched its all-electric Fisker Ocean SUV to the European market at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
The five-passenger Fisker Ocean Sport has a range of 440 KM (WLTP estimate) with a starting price of $37,499 in the US (excluding taxes and incentives) and €41,900 in Spain (VAT included, excluding subsidies). The top version Fisker Ocean Extreme travels 390 miles (EPA estimate) / 630 km (WLTP estimate) on a single charge with dual-motor all-wheel drive, three riding modes and a host of safety features never before seen on the market.
“Mobile World Congress in Barcelona is the perfect place to showcase the Fisker Ocean, as our vehicle is packed with cutting-edge technology, including live offerings that we will take to a new level,” said CEO Henrik Fisker. “With the Fisker Ocean’s combination of performance, value and durability, I believe we have a unique electric vehicle with industry-first features such as California Mode, a 17.1-inch rotating screen and longest range in our segment.”
“Europe is key to the success of the business as we work to build the most sustainable vehicle and start production in November,” he added.
As evidence of progress towards that goal, 47 prototypes of the Fisker Ocean are under construction, and Fisker himself reviewed their development the week before Mobile World Congress.
Fisker is developing a comprehensive and well-integrated European strategy. In 2021, the Manhattan Beach, Calif.-based startup established an office in Munich and is rapidly adding staff to serve a growing electric vehicle market.
The company is building its first Europe-based brand experience center in Munich, with plans for additional centers in other European countries. The industry-leading six-year, 60,000-mile/100,000-kilometre base warranty; 10-year, 100,000 mile/160,000 kilometer powertrain warranty; and the 10-year, 100,000-mile/160,000-kilometer battery warranty (whichever comes first in any case) will be supported by service centers throughout the region. For service, the company offers in-home vehicle support, or Fisker Mobile Service, for customers who prefer trained technicians to come to them. (The Fisker Ocean warranty also includes corrosion coverage and roadside assistance.)
Finally, in 2021, Fisker creates its Fisker Magic Works and chooses England as the headquarters of the division. This branch of the Fisker organization will develop special editions of the company’s vehicles as well as new high-performance projects combining durability with Henrik Fisker’s commitment to beautiful and emotional design.
Mobile World Congress runs from February 28 to March 3, 2022 and attendees are encouraged to visit the show booth to see the Fisker Ocean in person. The full Fisker Ocean press kit is available at www.fiskerinc.com/newsroom.
