Fisker announces over 31000 applications for the 17 billion Ocean

Fisker announces over 31,000 applications for the $1.7 billion Ocean electric car

The American brand Fisker does not hesitate to resort to a contract business model in the production of electric vehicles: Magna will produce the debut crossover Ocean for this, and the Taiwanese giant Foxconn will later launch the second PEAR model at its plant in Ohio. The company has already managed to accept 31,000 applications for the Ocean model for a total of US$1.7 billion.

The electric car was presented in November last year, but production will not start until autumn this year. Already Fisker Has more than 31,000 applications for the Ocean model, but expects to increase this number to 50,000 by the start of production of the novelty and thus spread the annual production program. The average cost to order an Ocean electric car is $56,000, giving Fisker about $1.7 billion in orders. By October, customers must confirm their intention to purchase an electric vehicle from Ocean. Approximately 80% of pre-orders are for the two higher configurations of the machine.

The company is already taking orders for the brand’s second crossover, PEAR, but its contractor Foxconn won’t start production until 2024 at the earliest. The exterior design of Fisker PEAR is practically approved, as the company boss explained, although the lack of such details does not prevent customers from pre-ordering already at a price of $ 29,900. Foxconn’s Ohio plant will be able to produce up to 250,000 crossovers of this model annually.

Fisker also expects to attract buyers with solid warranties. It will be six years or 100,000 km for the components of the power plant and 10 years or 160,000 km for the traction battery. The resource of the latter in many cases is a cause for concern for electric vehicle owners, so a serious warranty period will certainly attract the most suspicious buyers of Fisker products. It is noteworthy that both models of Fisker electric crossovers have already attracted the interest of major players in the rental car market. Negotiations are ongoing with them regarding the possibility of priority delivery of Fisker electric vehicles for rental fleet needs.
