Why does it matter?

- It will be manufactured in a CO2-neutral plant and is designed by automotive industry veteran Henrik Fisker. The bookings are currently open and the company has already received over 19,000 orders.
The car has a sporty and uncluttered look
Fisker Ocean is designed as a mainstream SUV with a muscular stance, a sculpted bonnet, 3D 'OCEAN' lettering on a chrome bar connecting the sleek headlights, and a faux mesh grille. On the sides, it is flanked by blacked-out B-pillars, flush door handles, black ORVMs, and designer wheels with thick cladding. There is a roof-mounted spoiler and skinny wrap-around taillights on the rear.
The cabin uses sustainable materials to highlight its green credentials
The Fisker Ocean offers a spacious 5-seater cabin with a flat-bottom steering wheel, vegan leather upholstery, and carpets made up of fishing nets as well as plastic bottles. It also houses a panoramic roof, heated seats on the top-spec trims, a premium sound system, and a high-resolution 17.1-inch central touchscreen infotainment system which can be rotated to landscape or portrait orientation, as per requirement.
The SUV gets a 360-degree-view camera
The Fisker Ocean comes with a range of safety equipment, including automatic emergency braking, driver attention warning, adaptive cruise control, a 360-degree-view camera, reverse collision mitigation, traffic jam assist, and front as well as side collision warning.
It delivers a range of over 563km
