This is a huge milestone for Fisker and on time as well. The company promised the deliveries would begin in May and here we are - the very first Fisker Ocean has been officially handed over to one very happy customer. Henrik Fisker himself was on hand to pass the keys and pose for the photos and to celebrate this most important moment.
The event took place in the newly opened Fisker Center in Copenhagen, Denmark. The vehicle in question was finished in Great White with the Sea Salt interior and white Alcantara seats. The contrasting black 22” AirGlider wheels complete the clean and classy look. This was the first of 5,000 units of the limited ONE launch edition which should all be delivered to the customers before September.
It has been a while since we first saw the Fisker Ocean at the 2021 LA Auto Show. The car received a very warm welcome thanks to its really good looks and many clever solutions. It has to be one of the best-looking SUVs on the market and it is one with the longest range - it received a 440-mile WLTP rating when equipped with 20” wheels and a 336-mile rating with 22” wheels and Fisker expects to achieve a 350-mile rating from EPA.
Fisker Ocean went into production in November, the company is already preparing to expand its production capacity with its partner Magna Steyr who’s responsible for manufacturing. During the initial production stages, the company manufactured all test and homologation vehicles with Ocean Sport and Ocean Ultra leaving the Austrian factory recently.

Once the deliveries of the Ocean One edition are completed, Ocean Extreme will follow. European customers are first in line to get their cars, with the US to follow shortly after. The company is still considering the production expansion into the US but its US partner Foxconn is preparing to manufacture Fisker Pear, the second, smaller EV, and no plans were made about the Ocean.
Fisker Ocean One comes with a Hyper Range battery with a 440-mile rating, and it can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.9 seconds. The launch edition was equipped with Fisker Intelligent Pilot, Winter Package for cold climates, and Ultimate Package for future OTA updates and software upgrades. The Performance Package adds extra driving modes that adjust the handling of the car and improves the performance.
Fisker Ocean Extreme has the same powertrain as the Ocean One but it lacks the reserved paint finishes and few other features. Both trims come with a standard solar roof that can keep the aircon running on hot days and add some extra charge to the battery. Fisker Ocean Ultra is a tad slower and has a lower range (379 miles), and Fisker Ocean Sport is the entry-level trim with only one electric motor powering the front wheels. It is still fairly quick with the 0 to 100 km/h taking 7.4 seconds and its smaller battery delivers 273 miles of range.
There is no denying this is a huge moment for the company, the whole world is watching and if the deliveries carry on without hiccups - Fisker will have succeeded in bringing a very good value electric SUV to the market. Fisker Pear is next, which will be the high-volume model for the company and it will be followed by the Ronin - a sports convertible unlike any other on the road - a true Fisker then.
