Fisker Ocean’s start of production after just over two years of development at Magna’s carbon-neutral factory in Austria on time defies conventional automobile development timelines.
More than 63,000 reservations for the all-electric Fisker Ocean reflect strong global demand.
Fisker Ocean contains more than 50 kilos of recycled, biodegradable and overall eco-conscious materials.
Fisker chairman and CEO Henrik Fisker: "We have the highest quality at launch, aligned with our commitment to leading the industry in sustainability."
Fisker and manufacturing partner Magna are in discussions to potentially expand beyond the originally planned number of units built per year
Fisker plans to produce 42,400 Ocean SUVs in CY2023.
Electric vehicle manufacturer Fisker has commenced production of its Ocean all-electric SUV on schedule today. After just over two years of intensive development, the vehicle has rolled out with world-class quality and future-forward user experiences. Fisker’s rollout strategy also includes continuous over-the-air (OTA) upgrading of feature packages.
“It’s an emotional day as we start production of the world’s most sustainable vehicle in record time – on time – in the carbon-neutral factory in Graz,” Fisker chairman and CEO Henrik Fisker said. “We’ve challenged the old model of longer development timelines, reflecting our team’s agility and dedication to creating emotionally desirable vehicles with the newest, most unique experiences in our price range. We have the highest quality at launch, aligned with our commitment to leading the industry in sustainability. More than 63,000 customers worldwide share our enthusiasm. It’s a day for our team and fans to celebrate!”
The start of production is reinforced by growing momentum globally – with two trims sold out in the United States market for 2023. In addition to the green manufacturing, the Fisker Ocean’s more than 50 kilos of recycled, biodegradable and overall eco-conscious materials reflect its commitment to sustainability. Fisker’s production ramp in Austria will see over 300 units manufactured in Q1 of 2023, with a rapid increase to over 8,000 units in Q2. More than 15,000 units will follow in Q3, and in Q4 the company will finish the year with enough units to total 42,400 units.
The top trim Fisker Ocean Extreme, priced at S68,999 (Rs 56 lakh) travels 350 miles/560km on a single charge, with dual-motor, all-wheel-drive, three driving modes, a 17.1-inch rotating screen featuring gaming in HMI, SolarSky roof, California Mode, and many first-to-market safety features, including the world's first digital radar.
The limited edition Fisker Ocean One builds on the Extreme trim, offering specific signature cues available only on the first 5,000 vehicles. In July 2022, the Fisker Ocean One sold out in 30 days, each secured by a $5,000 deposit representing $350 million in potential revenue for Fisker once all the vehicles are delivered.
