In a press release, Fisker announces that the first customer has taken delivery of the brand-new Fisker Ocean all-electric SUV.

It has been 10 years since Henrik Fisker’s first attempts to conquer a piece of the electrified future had to fold, and just 2 years after several celebrities including Denmark’s Crown Prince Frederik acquired the costly limited edition model Fisker Karma. But kudos to Mr. Fisker for not giving up, and this time not with a hybrid design, but fully electric, as he alluded to in an exclusive interview with CleanTechnica back in 2018.

The owner received their vehicle from Fisker Chairman and CEO Henrik Fisker at the recently opened Fisker Center+ facility in Copenhagen, Denmark. It’s a limited Ocean One launch edition model.

“I’m super excited to be in Copenhagen to hand over the first Fisker Ocean,” said Chairman and CEO Henrik Fisker. Fisker claims the Ocean One and extreme-specification models offer the highest driving range of any battery-electric SUV currently available on the European market, delivering 707 km confirmed WLTP range which could translate to more than 400 miles of EPA range — TBD.

The electric vehicle market is all ablaze right now, and it’s obvious that it will be hard for any EV startup to achieve profitability, but Fisker might have a good shot at it, since it has been hard at work preparing supply chain structures and manufacturing partnerships (with Magna Steyr). Furthermore, last but not least, it has put in the do-or-die work of securing of battery supply (with CATL).

According to Fisker’s online configurator, prices will range from $37,499 to $76,199 depending on model and trim choice. Fisker expects production to ramp to meaningful numbers this year, and my guess is that prices will probably be subject to change in the current market. In any case, the Fisker brand is a welcome fresh player in the market, and hopefully it will be successful.

Jesper had his perspective on the world expanded vastly after having attended primary school in rural Africa in the early 1980s. And while educated a computer programmer and laboratory technician, working with computers and lab-robots at the institute of forensic medicine in Aarhus, Denmark, he never forgets what life is like having nothing. Thus it became obvious for him that technological advancement is necessary for the prosperity of all humankind, sharing this one vessel we call planet earth. However, technology has to be smart, clean, sustainable, widely accessible, and democratic in order to change the world for the better. Writing about clean energy, electric transportation, energy poverty, and related issues, he gets the message through to anyone who wants to know better. Jesper is founder of Lifelike.dk and a long-term investor in Tesla, Ørsted, and Vestas.
