The Ocean

While we’ve known about the Ocean for a while now, this week Fisker offered an up-close look at what may be the final production version of the Ocean and a first look at the vehicle’s interior. Here’s everything you need to know about Fisker’s future EV entrant...

Fisker's Ocean EV will start at about $38,000.

Fisker’s Ocean will start at a fairly reasonable $37,999, which makes it among the most affordable options to enter the electric SUV space. For reference, Tesla’s Cybertruck is slated to go on sale for $39,900, which isn’t a huge difference, but shows just how serious newcomers are about competing with Elon Musk’s EV empire.

Fisker is off to a decent start with 19,000 reservations for the Ocean.

According to Fisker, the company has already taken 19,000 reservations for the Ocean, which for a relative upstart (or more accurately a resurrected brand), is not a bad start — even if reservations aren’t necessarily as indicative of reception as actual, paid preorders.

The most expensive version of Fisker’s Ocean (aptly dubbed the Extreme) will come equipped with a formidable 550 HP. That’s not quite as crazy as the mind-bending 800 HP you’ll get from Rivian’s upcoming R1S SUV, but it’s plenty for most motorists looking for an EV with some power.

3.6 secs

That's how long it takes to get from 0 to 60 mph.

Speaking of horsepower, the Ocean will be able to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.6 seconds, which puts it close to Rivian’s R1S, which can do the same in about 3 seconds flat.

340 miles

The estimated range of the Ocean.

At the highest end of the range tiers, Fisker’s Ocean will do 340 miles or so on a single charge. That’s a fairly mighty range for any EV, let alone an SUV. It’s worth noting, however, that those ranges are only available in the Ultra and Extreme tiers which start at $49,999 and $68,999 respectively.

Fisker says it expects to deliver the first vehicles to customers in November 2022.
