2023 Fisker Ocean, All you want to know about a Great Car
2023 Fisker Ocean! The EV SUV Reaches Production Form
The electric vehicle startup with the familiar name is showing off its mainstream SUV.
With the Pacific Ocean as the fitting backdrop, the all-new 2023 Fisker Ocean electric SUV made its global debut in Manhattan Beach, California. The beach town’s pier—jutting out over, you get it, the ocean—served as the stage for the new SUV’s unveiling in front of media and the public.
It’s been a long time coming. After debuting as a concept early last year, the 2023 Fisker Ocean heads to production in mid-November 2022 at Magna Steyr’s Graz, Austria facility. The Ocean is being touted as the “world’s most sustainable vehicle,” so we expect to see a high use of recycled materials in its cabin, along with some other breakthroughs.
Penned by Henrik Fisker himself, the Ocean is a five-passenger electric SUV aimed squarely at the Tesla Model Y and Ford Mustang Mach-E. With its stylish design and clean lines, the Ocean differentiates itself from the rest of the segment, blending a more conventional profile with less conventional detailing.
The production design is very similar to the concept, with futuristic-seeming thin headlights and taillights along with relatively spare ornamentation. The rear windows cut up towards the back, giving it a jaunty side view, while the straight character lines also help with the boxy look instead of it feeling like a lifted hatchback.
The 2023 Fisker Ocean will start at $37,499 before any federal or state tax incentives, which means its priced below the Tesla Model Y and the Mach-E. It’s essentially priced like a Chevrolet Bolt EUV, except buyers will get more room and an actual SUV-like experience. Those interested can put down a $250 deposit now.
Expect to get more details on the 2023 Fisker Ocean tomorrow at the full Los Angeles Auto Show reveal.
Fisker Dangles Ocean EV SUV Interior Breakthroughs Ahead of Full Reveal
Buyers will be able to choose from multiple cabin color schemes, too.
California-based EV startup Fisker will be showing the production version of its flagship model at this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show. The fully electric Ocean compact crossover will launch in late 2022 with a starting price of $37,499 and is claimed to deliver an estimated 250 to 300 miles of driving range. In a recent discussion with co-founder and CEO Henrik Fisker and senior director of interior Nadya Arnaout, Fisker shed some light on the Ocean’s interior design and customization options and what we can expect to see at the auto show unveiling.
With the 2022 Fisker Ocean electric SUV on track to begin production in November, two models are making their way to the L.A. Auto Show. At least one of the preview models will feature a colorful interior, and the EV carmaker insists that a bright white interior will not be the only option. “Cars have been suffering from a bit of boredom when it comes to colors. We all know that about 70 percent of cars are either white, black, or silver. It is the same with black and gray interiors,” said Henrik Fisker. Besides big sellers such as white and black, Fisker will be offering a range of interior colors, including on the base model, as well as the highest trim.
Fisker says it has additional interior surprises, that, unfortunately, we are not getting a glimpse of until closer to the Ocean’s official release in 2022. However, Fisker did disclose a few details, including an apparently groundbreaking technology used for forming the seats into unconventional shapes and laying out the seams in a way not seen before. The company also filed a patent for “interesting usability” in the infotainment screen that it claims no other automaker has built into cars yet. Among other noteworthy tidbits: the interior will be easier to clean than is typical, have plenty of storage space, and include a highly versatile center console.
So what else is coming to the L.A. Auto Show? Fisker is showcasing two of the exterior paint colors available at launch and is revealing all the pertinent information on the powertrain, technology, and battery packs. In addition, there might be a teaser video on the ongoing PEAR project, and Fisker plans to give a sneak peek at a special edition based on the Ocean, a collaboration with a local artist. Lastly, before we forget to mention, the launch edition model will be called “Fisker Ocean One.” Make sure to look out for our upcoming coverage next month to get all the details.
Fisker Ocean Expert Review
Fisker’s back! And if you don’t remember the gorgeous four-door Karma from the early 2010s, know this: The niche automaker returns in 2022 with an intriguing electric SUV.
How Much Will the 2023 Fisker Ocean Cost?
Fisker promises a base price of $37,499, before any rebates are factored in. There’s also the Fisker Flexee Lease plan, which includes 30,000 miles of driving, regular maintenance, and insurance as part of your monthly payment. The automaker says that customers who lease an Ocean can return it at any time with no penalty. Go for the lease and you’re looking at a starting price of $379 a month with $2,999 down.
Both options sound impressive, and we look forward to seeing whether Fisker can hold to these ambitious targets without increasing prices as the SUV is launched.
When Can I Get One?
The latest info has the 2023 Fisker Ocean arriving in the last quarter of the 2022 calendar year. The company says that reservation holders may get a chance to test drive the Ocean late in 2021.
Give Me Some Specs on This Electric SUV
The Fisker Ocean is a five-passenger SUV that will be available in RWD and AWD forms. Later on, a third-row seating option will be offered, as will a performance flagship model hitting 60 mph in just under 3 seconds, Fisker says. Twenty- and 22-inch wheels will be on the options list, with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto included. Range is estimated at 250 to 300 miles with a battery pack of at least 80 kWh, though it remains to be seen whether those numbers will hold up to EPA testing.
Recycled Interior Materials?
There’s more to the 2023 Ocean’s green credentials besides the fact that it’s purely electric. There’s the solar roof, recycled carpeting, and what Fisker calls a vegan interior.
