Fisker will open pre-orders for the limited edition Fisker Ocean One to existing pre-orderers on July 1.
Fisker Inc announced that it has received more than 40,000 pre-orders for its Ocean electric SUV, a number that has increased by around 8,000 since the company last shared the update on February 16 of this year. This, the company says, shows that many pre-orderers intend to buy either the Fisker Ocean One launch edition or the Fisker Ocean Extreme models, both of which are priced at $68,999 in the US.
Fisker will then open pre-orders for the limited edition Fisker Ocean One to existing pre-orderers on July 1. A total of 5,000 units of the limited edition Fisker Ocean One SUV will begin production by the company. from November. The company believes that both Ocean One and Ocean Extreme models will likely sell out through most of 2023 due to high levels of customer interest.
Once limited production of the Fisker Ocean One ends, the automaker will prioritize and produce all orders for the Fisker Ocean Extreme. Any additional capacity available will then be allocated to the Fisker Ocean Ultra SUV and the Fisker Ocean Sport SUV. However, production of the Fisker Ocean Sport likely won’t begin until late 2023, initially in modest numbers, with higher numbers expected in 2024.
The automaker also notes that in the event of a reservation cancellation, some additional customers may win a build slot for a 2023 Fisker Ocean Extreme. However, this will depend on the order in which they booked in advance. Additionally, if the automaker can produce 50,000 or more vehicles by 2023, it will consider options to increase deliveries to customers.
Fisker also announced that it will not raise prices for Fisker Ocean in 2022 or 2023 but given current inflation rates and global market pressures on logistics and cargo costs, it cannot guarantee that prices will remain the same for vehicle orders received after 40,000-mark. If all price changes occur, all placeholders will be notified.
