The Fisker Ocean is an all-electric SUV with a driving range of up to 350 miles in Fisker Ocean Extreme spec, or 250 miles in Fisker Ocean Sport spec – the latter being available from £34,990. Production is due to start in November 2022.
The Fisker Ocean’s revolutionary full-length SolarSky roof can harvest the sun’s rays to generate free energy to support the vehicle’s battery-powered motor. When fully exposed to the sun, the Fisker Ocean Extreme’s SolarSky can produce up to 1,500 clean, emissions-free miles per year, and under ideal conditions may increase to beyond 2,000 miles – all powered by pure sunshine.
The car has a Revolve rotating centre screen as an option; the 17.1-inch touchscreen has the power to swivel from a Control Mode – a portrait view – to Hollywood Mode – a landscape 16:9 widescreen format – which can be used to view films.
This can be used in combination with the Fisker HyperSound Audio System which has 500 watts of power, 16 speakers, a 20.5L subwoofer, and one of the largest 6 channel dashboard speaker arrays of its kind, delivering 360° sound.
At the touch of a button, eight windows can open at the same time – the front windows, both rear-seat windows, both rear ‘Doggie’ windows next to the D-pillar, and the Rear Lift Gate Window – as well as opening the SolarSky roof (known as California Mode).
The Ocean features Smart Traction, which Fisker says makes the vehicle perform more like a sports car than an SUV. Smart Traction distributes the right amount of torque to the correct wheels for optimal traction while handling sharp turns. This improves stability and traction on wet and icy roads as well as minimising energy loss and boosting efficiency.
The Fisker Ocean’s PowerHouse capability supported by a bidirectional onboard charger allows the battery to be used as a temporary energy reserve to power a home for up to seven days.
The Ocean can even find you a parking space and then park itself.
The launch-edition Fisker Ocean One, with an estimated range of 390+ miles, will cost £59,900.
