The Fisker Ocean Extreme’s average revealed by the EPA

  • The Fisker Ocean Extreme consumes an average of 22.9 kWh per 100 km.

  • The weight of the battery partly explains this result.

  • The same vehicle equipped with 22-inch wheels would probably do less well in terms of average consumption.


 

The small car manufacturer Fisker is quietly bringing its Ocean crossover to market. As is often the case with a brand-new model, the first production run is often limited, and this is also the case with the Fisker Ocean One. Next comes the Extreme trim, a version almost as well-equipped as the first, notably under the bodywork where the mechanical components are identical.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, also known as the EPA, recently updated its range and fuel consumption estimates for this second version of the Ocean crossover.

The Fisker Ocean Extreme, as its name suggests, is a little more “extreme” in terms of battery capacity, which reaches 113 kWh in this case. According to EPA calculations, the Extreme trim equipped with 20-inch wheels can cover a distance of 360 miles (or 579 km) before needing to stop for a charge. Note, however, that fuel consumption figures for the 22-inch version have not been disclosed. Expect a slightly shorter distance with the big shoes.

The EPA has also published the fuel consumption per 100 miles (161 km), which is admittedly quite high. Indeed, with a recorded average of 37 kWh/100 miles (22.9 kWh/100 km) and a result of 92 MPGe (or 2.6 Le /100 km), the Fisker Ocean Extreme is not the best of its segment.

The Tesla Model Y does better than Fisker’s new SUV, especially in its Long Range AWD variant, which registers a rating of 122 MPGe (or 1.9 Le /100 km) and an average of 28 kWh/100 miles (17.2 kWh/100 km).

Where the Fisker Ocean Extreme certainly loses a few points is in weight. At 5,369 lb (2,435 kg), the electric crossover is no lightweight, and this undoubtedly affects its performance.
