Ahead of its start of production on November 17, 2022, 95 prototype all-electric Fisker Ocean SUVs have already rolled off Fisker partner Magna Steyr's production system. Fisker will use the early-run vehicles to train service workers, conduct rigorous testing, and showcase the five-passenger, all-electric SUV across nine launch markets.

"It's fantastic to see the quality of the Fisker Oceans currently being manufactured, and to also see them incrementally improving on every visit," chairman and CEO Henrik Fisker said.

"It's rewarding to observe the continuous improvements to manufacturing speed on the assembly line. Our marketing and service teams are thrilled to get their hands on cars before the official production starts so they can thoroughly prepare for deliveries and promote the Fisker Ocean in our launch markets. This phase of assembly marks the onset of improvement and refinement for start of production and through ramp-up," he added.

Fisker continues developing its retail network, constructing Fisker Lounges in Los Angeles and Munich and Fisker Center+ locations in Copenhagen and Vienna, with plans for additional Lounges and Center+ spots in other key cities. In addition, the company's industry-leading warranty will be supported by service centres throughout its nine launch markets, offering at-home vehicle pick-up or Fisker Mobile Service for customers who prefer skilled technicians to come to them.

Fisker claims it has over 60,000 reservations and orders for the Fisker Ocean, including 5,000 sold out Fisker Ocean Ones, each secured by a $5,000 (Rs 400,000) deposit.

Prior to start of production, Fisker is to showcase the Fisker Ocean at the Paris International Motor Show (Mondial de l'Auto) from October 17-23, 2022, and the Oslo Motor Show from October 28-30, 2022.
