US electric vehicle start-up Fisker has announced it will reveal the production version of its all-electric Fisker Ocean SUV at the 2021 Los Angeles Auto Show, set to be held next year in May.
“It’s with great excitement that we’re making the global debut of the Fisker Ocean here in our home city of Los Angeles,” said Henrik Fisker, chairman and chief executive officer of Fisker.
“As befits the world’s first digital car company, we are also planning to showcase several Fisker-unique technologies that will support our differentiated ownership experience and vehicle functionality.”
The Fisker Ocean, currently expected to see deliveries begin in late-2022, up to 300 miles (482 km), and more than 200 miles (321 km) off a 30-minute charge.
Boasting an 80kWh battery and a full-length solar roof which will boost vehicle efficiency and drive range, the Fisker Ocean is currently one of the more anticipated EVs being touted by start-ups.
It’s been a good year for Fisker, starting back in March when the company unveiled new video footage and specs for the Ocean. In July, Fisker announced plans to go public on the New York Stock Exchange valued at $US2.9 billion ($A4.14 billion), which was followed a few days later by the completion of a $US50 million Series C financing round intended to support the next phase of engineering work on the Ocean.
By the end of July, Fisker had also promised plans to deliver four EVs by 2025, including the Ocean, as well as a wing-doored sports sedan, a sleek crossover, and an electric ute.
In the last 10 days, the company has also confirmed a strategic cooperation agreement with Magna International, which is intended to support the co-development and manufacture of the Fisker Ocean SUV.
Fisker also confirmed the signing of a significant vehicle order for 300 units with Danish ride-hailing service Viggo.
