Fisker ramps up Ocean One production to 300 per day

Californian EV start-up Fisker is ramping up production of its Fisker Ocean One EV at Magna Steyr in Austria from 180 to 300 per day, the company announces. So far, 3 123 customer vehicles have been built, but by the end of September, 5 000 is the target. All these Ocean One launch editions have already sold out since the beginning of this year.

Production is for customer deliveries in all European markets: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and for Canada and the US East and West Coasts, as well as other states, the press release mentions.

Belgium, Netherlands, and Switzerland added

At the beginning of August, Fisker announced that it had launched in three new European markets: Belgium, the Netherlands, and Switzerland. Residents of these countries must use the same direct-sales model as customers in other European markets.

Fisker intends to follow its strategy in these new markets and establish both Fisker Lounge locations or delivery and service centers in or near major cities. For Belgium, the brand of the Danish car designer only foresees a website in French, so far. However, its biggest market undoubtedly will be the Dutch-speaking part of the country, which accounts for over 60% of the population.

Only the Fisker Ocean Extreme can be configured at this time and ordered, starting at a base price of €70 930, running up easily to €78 000 or more by adding some nice-to-have options like 22-inch rims and a Sea Salt colored interior with Alcantara seats, plus electric foldable towing hook.

For Belgium, there is only a website with a configurator in French available /Fisker

Crossover, hyper GT, and pickup

Apart from ordering the Ocean, potential customers can reserve one of several forthcoming vehicles on fiskerinc.com starting at $250. These include the Fisker Pear, an affordable crossover aimed at city-dwellers, and the Fisker Alaska four-door pickup. Top of the bill is the Fisker Ronin, a super GT convertible expected to produce over 1 000 horsepower. Reserving one of those GTs will set you back for $2 000.

The Fisker Pear is expected to have a base price of $29 900 in the US, the Alaska will start at $45 400, while the base price for the Fisker Ronin is expected at $385 000 in the States. Pricing for the European markets will be released later in 2023, the company said before.
