Fisker Ocean released in Europe
Fisker has now presented its Ocean electric SUV in Europe for the first time at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The first final euro prices for the Ocean were also revealed at the European premiere.
When Fisker presented the series design of the Ocean at the LA Auto Show in November 2021, the company already revealed the US prices: These start at $37,499 before subsidies for the entry-level model with front-wheel drive and LFP battery. The Ultra (from $49,999) and Extreme (from $68,999) versions each feature twin-motor all-wheel drive and CATL cells with NMC chemistry.
Pricing for the base Ocean Sport version has an estimated WLTP range of 440 kilometres and prices will start at 41,900 euros (including VAT, excluding subsidies) in Spain. The Fisker Ocean Extreme is expected to have a range of 630 kilometres WLTP. Fisker is not yet giving prices for the all-wheel-drive versions in Spain or other EU countries.
Fisker said it is currently producing around 50 prototypes of the Ocean before series production is scheduled to start at Magna in Graz on 17 November, 2022. Deliveries of the Ocean are to begin in the US and “selected European and Scandinavian countries” shortly after the start of production in November.

For the German market, Fisker already announced a price “of less than 32,000 euros including taxes and EV-related subsidies” in an earlier announcement. With the German ‘environmental bonus’ of 9,570 euros gross, that would correspond to a price of fewer than 41,570 euros. However, Fisker will probably not be able to maintain the end customer price of fewer than 32,000 euros for long because the German environmental bonus in its current form is limited until 31 December 2022. The subsidy amount for 2023 has not yet been revealed.
“With the Fisker Ocean’s combination of performance, value, and sustainability, I believe we have a unique electric vehicle with industry-first features, such as California mode, a 17.1-inch rotating screen, and the longest range in our segment,” said company founder and CEO Henrik Fisker at the European premiere at MWC. Europe is “critical to the success of the company,” he adds.
