The Fisker Ocean electric SUV was officially unveiled at the 2021 LA Auto Show.
Henrik Fisker, CEO and founder of Fisker Inc., presented the company’s flagship EV to the world on Wednesday. Details regarding the Fisker Ocean’s specifications and pricing were addressed alongside the actual physical reveal.
First off, there will be three trims of the Fisker Ocean at launch: the Sport, the Ultra, and the Extreme.
According to Henrik Fisker, all three feature the same wide stance for “maximum handling,” as well as various recycled materials laced “all through” the vehicle.
This is very much a green, eco-friendly vehicle. Fisker is no stranger to the electric vehicle industry—or sustainability—having begun back in 2007 as Fisker Automotive and then reborn as Fisker Inc. in October 2016.

The exterior, including the wheels, will feature some mixes of aluminum and recycled carbon fiber. The interior will feature recycled plastics, fishing nets, and even t-shirts!
It also has the first rotating interior display. It can go from portrait to landscape mode with the push of a button.
With the Fisker Ocean, they’ve managed to spotlight sustainable materials in an elegant, luxurious automobile.
Distinguishing the three Oceans
The Fisker Ocean will come in three trims, as mentioned before: the Sport, Ultra, and Extreme.
The Sport trim is the lowest costing option and starts at $37,499. It features LFP battery technology that will allow it to reach a range of 250 miles. Its single front-wheel drive motor offers 275 horsepower, and it can go from 0 to 60 in 6.9 seconds.
The Ultra trim is where things start getting even more interesting, as good of a deal as the Sport is.
The Fisker Ocean Sport starts at $49,999. This will net you a version of the car that outputs 540 horsepower from a dual-motor all-wheel drive system. The NMC battery in this will provide it an estimated range of up to 340 miles, and it can go from 0 to 60 in 3.9 seconds.
That’s a lot of car for $49,999.
The Extreme is the top-end trim of the Fisker Ocean. It features the same NMC battery technology as the Ultra, and will get over 350 miles of estimated range. Bearing a 550 horsepower dual-motor all-wheel drive system, it goes from a standstill to 60 miles an hour in 3.6 seconds.
According to Henrik Fisker, the torque vectoring technology found in the Ultra and Extreme provide a next-level driving experience. Those two cars also feature Smart Traction as an added safety feature.
With over 19,000 pre-orders already, Fisker may have hit a home run with the Ocean. This first look has already painted the vehicle and its future in an incredibly promising light.
From a value standpoint—especially taking into account local incentives programs—the Sport looks to provide an outstanding entry-level EV experience.
From a performance-per-dollar standpoint, the all-wheel drive models also look like incredibly tantalizing options.If you are interested in reserving a Fisker Ocean, you can do so for a $250 deposit on Fisker’s website.
