New 2022 Fisker Ocean makes UK debut at Goodwood – Autocar


Three trim levels will be available. Sport brings a 275bhp motor on the front axle for a 0-60mph time of 6.6sec; Ultra gets a motor on each axle, boosting output to 540bhp and cutting the sprint time to 3.9sec; and range-topping Extreme brings 550bhp and a 3.6sec 0-60mph time. Fisker has not confirmed battery capacities and claims it is still testing the model’s exact charging speeds. 

Entry-level Sport trim gets a ‘touring’ battery pack, which is capable of 275 miles. Key features include a 17.1in touchscreen, a ‘big sky’ roof, an electric tailgate, cruise control and automatic headlights. 

The mid-range Ultra specification is fitted with a ‘hyper range’ battery, which ups the Ocean’s range to 390 miles. An open sky roof, automatic emergency braking, remote vehicle finder, ‘doggie windows’ and a California mode are touted as standard features. Prices start from £48,900.  

Range-topping Extreme models start from £59,900 and include smart traction for improved stability in rough weather, a 360-degree camera, wireless phone charging, lane change assist and a rotating central infotainment system, which can sit either in portrait or landscape. 

Top models also gain solar panels on the roof to provide more power in sunny conditions. Fisker says the roof is able to produce up to 1500 miles of range per year. 

Alternatively, drivers can choose the limited-run One spec, which also starts from £59,990. Based on the Extreme, the model will be limited to the first 5000 units produced. Standard kit includes 22in wheels and a commemorative signature. 

Fisker suggests over-the-air updates, advanced technology and the model’s sustainability qualities will help push the Ocean towards success. 

Earth and Fun driving modes are standard in all cars, while the Ultra and Extreme add Hyper mode, which boosts performance. The Extreme also gets a dedicated Off-Road mode. 

The Ultra and Extreme variants use batteries supplied by Chinese firm CATL that use nickel-manganese-cobalt (NMC) cell chemistry, which, Fisker says, affords them “a combination of segment-leading range and performance”.
