by birtanpublished on April 6, 2021

Are you queueing good morning Los Angeles it is 11:45 a.m. and we are here in sunny downtown LA ready to reveal the new Fisker Ocean it's gonna be a 30-minute reveal so hang tight and let me introduce to you Henrik Fisker Henrik Fisker Henry can can somebody call him on his cell phone please hello Henrik we're we're we're looking for you we're live where are you well I was tricking out the trunk I'm inside the trunk I can't get out he's in the trunk can you help me hey guys I thought it's gonna be shipped to Las Vegas here all right this is a little lower Harry there but big

Trunk thank you for coming we have a lot to talk about today today I've got to give you a lot of specs about the car and I know all of you guys here have at least a lot of you have already reserved a Fisker ocean so hopefully we can give you as much information as possible one of the amazing things about this vehicle I think you're gonna be surprised about is actually the purchase price we're gonna sell a few of Fisker oceans meaning Full Sail but as you also know some of you we are planning a flexible lease model we have launched our Fisker app and through this app we want to

Manage everything together with our clients and cost in the future why do we want to do that we want to make it easy hassle-free but the other point is as we move into electrification one of the things that's going to be most important it's gonna be affordability in the end of the day how do we get as many of these vehicles out in the road and how do we make them affordable and obviously the technology is still expensive and it's going to take some years to get it affordable so if we can find other ways to make electric vehicles affordable for the

Future in the near future this could help us a lot so one of the things we're doing we're looking at certain design elements where we can take cost out of the vehicle where you don't mind and I'm gonna explain some of that and then we're looking at this not only direct to consumer approach but also taking out every single middleman that stands between us shipping a vehicle and you receiving it and believe me there's a lot of middleman in there we have taken them all out we're gonna deliver the vehicles directly to you and through that we're gonna be able to offer you

Quite an amazing price but part of that is also how efficient we can be as a company which is why we call ourselves the world's first digital car company we want to do everything digital as little brick-and-mortar as possible because that is cost so let me take you through everything here in the car but just a little more about the app somebody has my phone somebody just took my phone Rebecca or who has my phone oh there thank you so I just want to show very simple for you guys who haven't seen it you got an app on your phone here and what we also allow you to do we allow

You to go in and get for instance pictures on the phone before anybody else so after this show we're gonna upload some unique behind-the-scenes photos of the Fisker ocean secondly just before I walk around we we have spent the last two years setting up a global supply chain for this vehicle supply for the battery that's one of the most important things making sure you have an battery supply that has already been set up we have secured enough production capacity for a million vehicles over the first five years of production we are

Gonna release this vehicle in 2022 we'll start production end of twenty one and we will deliver a few vehicles an end of twenty one but they're already spoken for and of course depending on when you would put in a reservation you would hopefully be able to get a vehicle in 2022 it's a vehicle that's engineered for global markets we will launch globally obviously not simultaneously we start with the US and then shortly after Europe and then eventually China so again I'm gonna come to the pricing later because you're gonna get very I think your might you're gonna get blown

Away by this pricing all right let me explain a little bit about the vehicle let's just walk to us from the front here so a lot people ask I do you need air into a vehicle when it's electric well you still need some air for cooling battery's cooling electronics cooling the motor which is why most electric vehicles do have some sort of opening at the lower end here so what we have done is we are creating a paramedic pattern here where we slowly open up this pattern to get air in exactly where we need it so that's something that you can do a little different than normal

Vehicles we also have some technologies that we're going to release a little more information about little later we got down here a middle-range radar and up here a short distance radar everything to do with obviously autonomous features of the vehicle another unique thing about the front is the fact where we have actually try to look into giving more interior space and also saving cost envelope meant and the production we have moved a lot of the air condition unit electronics out underneath the front and therefore we have been able to fixed but and the

Fixed hood means we don't have to engineer expensive latches seals and a whole bunch of other things does a simpler to actually manufacture this car when you fill in water for the wipers you just fill it in up here there's a special cap so you don't ever need to get under the hood of this car and you wouldn't need that anyway because we actually with our flexible lease take care of all service all maintenance on this car if you pick up the car take it to maintenance when is needed you can request through your app if you feel the car needs something or

You weird noise which hopefully you never will but if you do and things happen then that's where you get your service right from us so another interesting thing on the front just a little more in terms sign is we have very thin LED lights we kind of have the two bars which is the two bars from the fiscal logo what we also have done is a lot of times when you see new cars the indicators are integrating to the front headlamps so when they indicate they kind of close one lamp and it kind of looks like something is wrong so what we have done

Is we put the indicator down low to kind of separate them from the main lights so that's a little bit different design feature the other thing you will notice from the front is the extremely wide stance of the vehicle you can see how the wheels have been pushed out compared to the size of the body the width of the body and the height of the vehicle why have we done that well think about it if you have a wide track it's gonna give you a lot more stability in through cornering through high speed it's kind of an active safety feature with a low place battery and a wide track this

Vehicle is gonna be incredible stable we are really aiming to make this one of the best-handling vehicles you might ask so what's under the hood well in this vehicle there is both an electric motor in the front and in the rear when you get the followed option and we will have many different train variations meaning output variations but we are aiming to have streaming high output version which will go 0 to 60 in 2.9 seconds now that will obviously be the extremely high output version and not the base version all right so let's walk a little bit around the side we got

On this version here 22 inch built second Wow oh why is it called a Fisker ocean alright okay fine I'll tell you why the reason is I think we have a 10-second video I think that explains everything so I will so in this vehicle we have an abundance of recycled materials but actually a lot of them came from the ocean so we thought what about calling the Fisker ocean so that's kind of how that name came around and I'm gonna talk about some of these recyclable materials most of them in the interior right now we also have something that's called

California mode where we can roll down all the windows and already waived for that little window here behind this so there is both a sense of fun about that driving open an SUV you kind of don't really want to have a convertible SUV because it sort of defeats the purpose of having something utilitarian strong so we have kept the entire structure of this vehicle but you're able to open all the windows to kind of give this open-air feeling including the roof the advances is that you can also put in long things through the back which I'll show in a second but just getting

Through here on the side we got some really cool door handles with light in them that's trash sensitive that will close and open as you just put your hand on them on the rear we have done something again kind of a unique feature for safety where we have mounted an indicator here on the top so you have an 18-wheeler or some high vehicle behind you and you want to change lane in front they connect look down and they will see you changing lane when you use your indicator I know we don't like to use indicators here in California but for other people around the world that is

Something that will be really a big safety feature on the roof we are gonna offer on the top version a full-length solar roof it'll give you about a thousand miles free sea remission a year if you're in a good weather like here in California some of the plays in the world might a little bit less but why are you doing that and is it really super efficient well you know you gotta start somewhere with new technology just like we're starting electrification we are starting with you know recycled materials want to start

With putting in the solar roof we know that this thing is improving improving and we can then update it because we already got the hardware I almost see the future or vehicles being the hardware like your phone but you can keep on adding things to this vehicle to improve the efficiency and that's something why don't we design car we really thought about making it extremely you know kind of clean timeless without too many you know creases and stuff on the side make it kind of like that this vehicle would also look good in five years from now this is not something our

Our whole philosophy is not to make a facelift every two years for you to buy another vehicle that is why we created the flexible lease because we will keep sending these vehicles out after the first one gives it back we'll send it out for a slightly lower price third person give it back we'll send it out it's kind of part of the whole sustainability effect we're not here to press you to buy something and then throw it away as fast as possible so we can sell you something else we're here to provide a mobility service and that is really the difference now coming to

Us the rear of the vehicle and I know it's kind of turned away so we're gonna try and get some some shots on this a lot of the rear has been designed around aerodynamics we got obviously a large spoiler here we got some smaller spoilers on the side of the vehicle and then below the vehicle we got some air ducts that you can anomaly see in sports cars and supercars but we have actually placed them here because they're quite efficient to kind of let the air slip out underneath the vehicle as we have a flap obviously a flat bottom of this vehicle on air we have this roll

Down window which on one hand is fun and cool because it lets Aryan but it's also very usable because you can put long things in through that without having to open the hatch and dry around with an open hatch but to protect the body and the interior we have put this that kind of looks like a tire and we kind of thought that would be cool because this actually made from recycled rubber that's come out of tire manufacturing that normally goes into landfills so by taking this rubber and remoulding it and using in the vehicle we are making sure it doesn't go into landfills but also

Has a function by being here in this area you can put stuff in and out worried about scratching anything a ruin in interior obviously there has been some open hatches in the back like this but they kind of went away from it because what they found out was with gasoline vehicles there's a turbulence and gasoline fumes come in through the rear now we don't have that issue obviously which is really cool was kind of why he brought it back and kind of connected with all the rest coming down all right I think we got to take a look at interior because nobody has seen that

Yet so I want to get inside and explain you some of the futuristic things inside the interior first of all the design the interior there was a focus of keeping it extremely few ticket lean but still but still be able to create a sense of luxury even for this price class and we have done that will come a several type of features we are using something that kind of feels like suede up here with sort of an ocean diamond pattern it's very soft very high quality but it's actually made from recycled t-shirts and other type of things so it's kind of cool all the carpets in the Fisker ocean

Including in the trunk is made from recycled plastic bottles and fishing nets from the ocean so it's totally recycled materials the entire interiors vegan also made from materials that's produced in a sustainable way coming to the technology and the vehicle we obviously have buttons in the steering wheel which can be used by the dryer if you got a very small display right in front of the driver just to give sort of the basic information that you want right in front of you like speed etc you can obviously modulate that we're also gonna have it

You have a head-up display where you obviously as you put in your navigation for instance you will have all your errors all the information by looking straight out through the screen you have all those things up there and then we have a very large screen in the center which is kind of where everything is going because everything is going digital and you want to be able to use touch screens just like we do on our smart device or a phone but in the end of the day driving a car and specifically when you're bumpy roads is not the same as sitting comfortable in

Your chair at home and operating your iPad or your smartphone so we have actually looked into what are the five most important functions you use thousands of time a day where you don't have to go into a menu where you don't have to worry about having to look at the screen if it charts at the right place so we create an extension of this Bend screen at the bottom five buttons which are haptic you can actually feel and as a small haptic feel when you move them and it's the five buttons that we think you use most through our research it's the fan speed creycrey up and down

I want to cool my car quick I want to heat a quick temperature it's too hot in here let me get it down quick it's the home button to get back to your home screen it's the find search button getting up and down getting you whatever your preferred song or whatever it might be and then it's the volume button quickly up and down volume those five buttons you can operate without taking your eyes off the road or on a bumpy road not having to worry about hitting the right thing then underneath that we have two spaces for inductive charging for smart

Phones and of course we got the typical cupholders we got storage space as well and we can use as an armrest and a nice that as an extra storage space for handbags etc we are a couple of cool features in here like we have actually used light to kind of create a new ambience in the vehicle it's an option you don't have to have it if you don't like it but we have actually like coming through a unique material in it's actually quite quite cool so now with that said I wanted to mention earlier that I want to come back to the pricing of your coke so

Think about everything you get in this vehicle for a moment and you know think about what vehicles today cost we will be able to here in the US sell this vehicle starting at twenty thousand nine hundred ninety nine dollars after the credit 7,500 at discount you get so twenty nine thousand nine hundred ninety nine dollars now without that tax discount is thirty seven thousand four hundred ninety nine which is still very good but as you know we get you know that text a discount for the first couple of hundred thousand vehicles so we should be able to sell that vehicle

For the first couple of years here in the US for 29,999 dollars if you want to do the flexible lease it starts from $379 a months but of course there is everything included we pick up the car which services we do everything else obviously you can put a deposit on two hundred fifty dollars and then depending on when you did that will depending on when you will get the vehicle delivered like I mentioned we will deliver the first vehicles an end of twenty one but they already spoken for because we did have some early adopters like yourself but even earlier and then I think where

We are now is whoever's gonna put in our be sometime in 2022 I want to get back into the interior by the way because I forgot to tell you about some very unique fun feature that we created in here and so with this head-up display it's normally meant for kind of very important things but we actually create karaoke lyric system well you can actually see the lyrics as drive and keep your keep your head on the street but sing I'm not hey be nice how are you so you've been talking a lot about how comfortable is for five people you guys are comfortable yeah oh it's very

Comfortable traffic yeah but more importantly it's a karaoke feed yeah that's what we all want to get right very cool it's very cool but I I'm not a good singer so don't worry neither we okay all right okay what what song should be played all right let's do it all right let's see if we can get this thing to work hold on hold on here hold on hold on go to work Hotel California unless you even get this thing to work I'm afraid that you might have to sing that without the actual music I don't know that might be a little tricky is

That gonna be tricky probably need some you see if I can get this thing to work we could try it all right ready 1 1 2 3 welcome to the hotel california such a lovely place such a lovely face you can find us here singing to everybody out there that saw the live streams thank you very much we're gonna be in Las Vegas the 7th of January and everybody can come up and take a look at the vehicle here we will end it now with a live stream and I'll come out and take some questions from the audience and some photos where we need to do thank you very much everybody thank you
