Fisker Ocean styling
As you’d expect from a brand that has created some of futuristic-looking EVs ever, its newest product is stunning. Up front, the bonnet and grille appear to mould into a single piece, with the Fisker name and badge taking pride of place.
It gets a huge set of alloy wheels – 20in or 22in depending on spec– while the wheel arches themselves are particularly angular and more squared off than we’re used to on most cars. Towards the back, the body sweeps upwards with the rear quarter light windows being much more tapered than the glass in the doors.
Round the rear, there’s an equally sharp set of tail lights to match the front, which are almost difficult to pick out when the lights aren’t actually illuminated. A cool additional feature is a roll-down rear windscreen and quarter lights that open to let fresh air in to the car. Seven colours and five alloy wheel choices will be offered from launch.
Fisker Ocean interior and tech
The exterior might offer a fresh approach, but on the inside Fisker has obviously been influenced by existing Tesla designs. In the middle of the dash, you’ll find a huge 17in screen that actually pivots from landscape to portrait, while the driver gets a digital display too.
There appears to be a neat row of touch-sensitive buttons that hover below the screen, while Fisker says that every material used in the car’s production has been sustainably sourced; from the seats to the steering wheel – this is officially a vegan friendly vehicle.
Fisker Ocean drivetrains
Several variants of the Ocean will be on offer, with the Sport, Ultra, Extreme making up the key trim levels. The Sport gets a choice of two batteries and a single motor producing 170hp. It gets from 0-60mph in 6.9 seconds.
Ultra adds another motor and all-wheel drive, giving the Ocean a 0-60mph run of just 3.9 seconds. The Extreme is even quicker, with its official figures showing 3.6 seconds.
The entry-level Sport uses a traditional lithium-ion battery, while the higher two trim levels get batteries that utilise a new technology that boosts performance and range.
