Fisker has released further details on its first all-electric SUV, the mid-size Ocean, which has now been made available to buy alongside the previously announced flexible leasing option – but only if you get in quick.
The full purchase option starts at $US37,499 ($A54,051) in the United States but will only be offered on “a limited number of vehicles”, according to Fisker.
It’s unclear if the traditional ownership model will be available alongside flexible leasing –$US379 ($A546) per month in the US with a $US2999 ($A4322) deposit and no fixed-term contract (but limited to 30,000 miles per year) – in Australia, where Fisker plans to launch in 2022 with the Ocean and a dual-cab ute based on the same platform.
Either way, Ocean production begins late next year ahead of deliveries starting in 2022.
Fisker says it expects to build more than one million vehicles in its first five years thanks to its production capacity across the US, Europe and China.
An Ocean can currently be reserved via the Fisker smartphone application for $US250 ($A360).
As reported, the Ocean has an 80kWh lithium-ion battery that provides 402-483km of driving range and can be recharged via the SUV’s full-length solar roof, which Fisker says delivers 1609km worth of extra charge per year.
Fisker claims the Ocean will sprint from a standstill to 100km/h in a Tesla Model X-rivalling 2.9 seconds, despite being positioned as a rival for the smaller, soon-to-be-launched Model Y.
Two- and all-wheel-drive configurations will be available.
Inside, a large touchscreen is positioned centrally, while a digital instrument cluster sits ahead of the driver along-side a head-up display that can show music lyrics when a song is playing – a necessary feature if taking advantage of the Ocean’s karaoke mode.
