Yesterday we knew the approved autonomy data of the FiskerOcean in its version with greater autonomy, which achieved a better than estimated figure with 707 km WLTP. Now, the North American manufacturer has opened sales in Europe, where we can order a unit of the access version from competitive prices. €38,882.
This price corresponds to the German market, and is before public aid. In exchange, the client will take an SUV with an attractive and different design, manufactured in Austria, equipped with a one-engine propulsion system and 205 kW (279 hp) that propels him up to 100 km/h in 7.4 seconds.
The battery is a lithium-ferrophosphate pack of 75 useful kWhwhich provide an estimated autonomy of 440 kilometers. A figure pending approval. But as we saw yesterday with the longer-range variant, this number could ultimately be higher when it gets WLTP certification.
The price is one of the most competitive in the market, and for example we can compare it with the 38,335 euros that a Citroen e-C4 X would cost us. The French crossover that is somewhat smaller than the Ocean, 4.6 meters long against the 4.78 meters of the Fisker, something that should translate into less interior and cargo space. In terms of performance, the e-C4 x has a 100 kW (136 hp) engine and a useful 45 kWh battery, which provide it with 360 km of WLTP autonomy.
By size we can find Ford Mustang Mach-ewhich in its most accessible version has a 198 kW (265 CV) motor and a useful 70 kWh battery, which provide the same Fisker’s 440km WLTPbut with a price that is placed in the €64,687. A difference of 25,805 euros and a budget with which we could launch for the Ocean Ultra, with 610 km of WLTP autonomy, which is priced at 59,282 euros.
Perhaps the toughest rival that the Fisker will have to face will be the Tesla Model Y. In its Standard version, the American model has a 220 kW (299 hp) and a battery that stays at just 57.5 useful kWh, enough to achieve an approved autonomy of 455 km. All at a price of €48,200. This are 9,318 euros more than the Ocean.
It remains to know the levels of equipment, the finishes and also the question of recharging. An SUV that promises a lot, and that will begin its distribution this coming April in Europe. Something that tells us that we won’t have to wait long to find out if the Fisker Ocean is too good to be true.
