Fleet companies are among the first to raise their hands for the Ocean.
Viggo, as Danish ride-hailing service, has ordered 300 Fisker Ocean SUVs.
Fisker is also in the process of developing a $30,000 EV.
Fisker officially unveiled its electric SUV at the 2020 of the CES. Comments were generally positive and since, we’ve learned a lot about the handsome SUV including the fact that it will be built by Magna and be assembled on one of its in-hose developed platforms. As the Ocean takes form, fleet companies are taking notice and have demonstrated interest in the vehicle.
To date, more than 14,000 reservations have been made for the 2023 Fisker Ocean. While the number is encouraging, it’s the interest shown by fleet customers that help Fisker move from a start-up low-volume automaker to the next level.
“We are encouraged by the interest being shown by the corporate sector towards enabling greater access to zero-emission mobility,” said Fisker Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Henrik Fisker. “As more and more consumers and businesses are making the transition to electric vehicles, we are ready to partner with forward-thinking companies as they catalyze the shift to electric vehicles.”
As of now, more than 100 of the world’s leading companies have made commitments to transition their fleets to EV by 2030, thanks in no small part to the work of the Climate Group. These companies alone could represent up to five million vehicles.
Fisker won’t stop here, however. They are in the process of co-developing a “breakthrough electric vehicle” that will be very affordable.
“We are moving rapidly to enlarge the dedicated team working with Foxconn on Project PEAR,” added Mr. Fisker. “The prospect of a breakthrough electric vehicle at a sub-$30,000 price point is generating a lot of excitement and anticipation.”
