Fisker — designer and manufacturer of electric vehicles and advanced mobility solutions — has revealed the name of its upcoming all-electric luxury sports utility vehicle: Fisker Ocean.
Designed in California by iconic automotive designer, entrepreneur, and visionary, Henrik Fisker, the Fisker Ocean will be the world’s most sustainable vehicle – featuring recycled, vegan, and more innovative materials, according to the company.
Fisker has skipped the standard automotive process of making a show car and will instead reveal a fully running production intent prototype sitting on the actual, completely engineered platform on Jan. 4. The unveiling will take place during a private event, which will be live streamed online.
Early reservations for the all-electric luxury SUV will be open as the mobile app launches on Nov. 27. Further details, including pricing, will be released on that date.
At 4,640 mm in length, the Fisker Ocean is designed for optimal space and usability. Focus has been made on optimizing efficiency throughout the design, including a fixed hood that avoids costly sealing and latches, as well as saves weight. The room under the hood has been optimized for housing new-age electronics and the air conditioning unit.
- Full-length solar roof: Supporting the car's electric power source, boosting fuel efficiency and lowering carbon dioxide emissions which will result in 1,000 free, clean miles per year. As the technology evolves, Fisker will feature integrated hardware solutions for better energy yields and more free, clean miles per year.
- Fully recycled carpeting: Made from regenerated nylon, which is made from abandoned fishing net waste – pulled from the oceans and aquaculture.
- Vegan interior: 100% Polycarbonate Polyurethane surfaces and 100% reinforced Rayon backing; Meets stringent chemical emission limits for various VOCs (such as Formaldehyde).
- Eco-suede: Interior textures and patterns derived from polyester fibers (T-shirts, fibers) and recycled bottles, plastic, etc. Recycling polyester means reducing energy consumption and CO2 emissions into the atmosphere by 80% compared to the traditional petrol-based polyester production process. Eco-sustainability, as well as the lowest levels of polluting emissions and energy consumption, are guaranteed throughout the whole production cycle.
- Repurposing rubber waste: Fisker will utilize discarded rubber waste generated during tire manufacturing that will no longer be dumped in landfills. Recycling saves impressive amounts of energy, which ultimately reduces greenhouse gas emissions.
- All-electric SUV range: The all-electric SUV will come standard with an extended range (target of approximately 250 to 300 miles, depending on driving conditions), enabled by an approximately 80 kWh lithium-ion battery pack.
