Since the rise of the electric car, we have seen a rush of new car brands on our European roads. Fisker will also try it again – after the flopped Karma – in our region with the Ocean, an SUV with the footprint of, say, a Mercedes EQE or Tesla Model Y. It will still have to wait until the end of April for its official homologation for Europe, a WLTP We already have a score. Because the Fisker Ocean Extreme has a range of an impressive 707 kilometers. Yes.
Extremely wide range
With that potential range of 707 kilometers, the Fisker Ocean Extreme leaves behind other electric SUVs such as the EQS SUV (WLTP: 672 km), BMW iX (WLTP: 630 km) and the Audi Q8 e-tron (WLTP: 600 km). Range king Mercedes EQS Berline (WLTP: 784 km) can go just a little further. Although that is of course a more streamlined sedan.
How can Fisker present such a large range? Well, that undoubtedly has to do with the dimensions of the battery. A volume that Fisker is currently still keeping under wraps. Although we are undoubtedly talking about a battery of more than 100 kWh in the Ocean Extreme. You can immediately see that “Extreme” as the top variant and unpacks with 550 hp via two electric motors. As a result, the burly SUV immediately sprints from a standstill to 100 in 3.9 seconds.
Braver versions too!
Is that all a bit too extreme for you? Then Fisker will bring the Ocean to Europe in various versions. There is also a better Ocean Sport that gets 279 hp under the hood and uses a smaller LFP battery. Although smaller is relative, because it is expected to still be a hefty 75 kWh.
Fisker will open its first dealers in Europe next month, although initially limited to Austria and Denmark. The American brand has announced that it wants to switch quickly and will open Fisker centers throughout Europe by 2023.
