New details on the 2022 Fisker Ocean EV SUV have surfaced, providing an outline of things to come in the burgeoning all-electric premium crossover segment – a segment where the upcoming Cadillac EV crossover aims to compete.
“We are aiming to disrupt the automotive industry by challenging all conventions, development time, manufacturing scale-up, customer ownership experience, vehicle financing and service,” said Fisker Inc. CEO Henrik Fisker.
The upcoming Fisker Ocean will offer seating for five, and will be 182.7 inches long, 76 inches wide, and 63.6 inches tall, making it roughly equivalent to the Cadillac XT4 in terms of exterior dimensions. Wheel sizing will range up to 22 inches in diameter.
Critically, the Fisker Ocean will be able to cover up to 300 miles between plugs, with active aerodynamics and cooling systems boosting range as needed. Four-wheel-drive will be standard across the range.
In back, the new EV crossover will have a multi-link rear suspension. The automaker also claims the Ocean will offer “off-road capability and superior utility,” including up to 25 cubic-feet in the trunk. There will also be tow hook options, with towing info planned for release in 2021. Standard output will crest the 300-horsepower mark, and there will also be a high-performance model capable of reaching 60 mph in less than three seconds.
Cabin tech will be extensive, including a head-up display on the windshield, 16-inch infotainment screen, and 9.8-inch gauge cluster. Further highlights will include augmented reality features, inductive phone charging, and haptic touchscreen response.
Some unique features will include Karaoke Mode, which will display song lyrics on the windshield, and a California Mode, which will lower all the windows, including the rear hatch glass.
The 2022 Fisker Ocean EV SUV will start at $37,499, which drops to $29,999 after the U.S. federal tax credit. Production is slated to kick off in the fourth quarter of 2021.
Meanwhile, the new Cadillac EV crossover is set to debut in April, with a launch date expected for the 2022 calendar year, as outlined in a previous post from our sister publication, Cadillac Society.
